I get more for less with Persimmon.

It's overwhelming to sort through all the theories and resources available for leaders. Persimmon does a great job of giving me the opportunity to maximize "bang for buck" by providing lots of actionable items, food for thought, and a summary of tactics in a short amount of time.
