Welcome to the third issue for 2020. First, It is with great pleasure that I introduce our new member of editorial board. Dr. Ernesto Santibanez-Gonzalez.

It highlights the different ways an assessment can be done and how it can be used to build on strengths and address opportunities for improvement.
The second article is, “The 30minutes meeting challenge - Leaders spend more than 70% of their time in meetings?” by Luciana Paulise. After reading this article you will learn tactics to improve your productivity.
