Bob Behn, Senior Lecturer, Harvard Kennedy School of Government

He publishes the Performance Leadership Report, and his latest book is The PerformanceStat Potential: A Leadership Strategy for Producing Results. On In Depth with Francis Rose, Bob said one big problem with implementing Stat sessions is convincing people they won't be bashing sessions.
