The Team Diagnostic™ Assessment is a unique approach to working with teams that is unlike any in the marketplace. What sets it apart from other methodologies is that it regards the team as a “system,” a living dynamic organism that has characteristics that transcend those of any of the individual members. In this way, the team itself is seen as its own body with spoken and unspoken rules, vision, ideas, blind spots, expectations, and even moods. The team must be explored as its own entity, independent of the needs of any single member. The spirit of a team infects and influences the individuals and plays a significant role in how the team works together and what the team produces.
Most current organizational and executive coaching paradigms focus on assessing and coaching the team as a collection of individuals. In this traditional model, assessments are used to measure the characteristics and performance of individual team members. These individual assessments are then aggregated to form a team profile. The limitation of this approach is that the team is represented as discrete data points rather than the system as a whole. Team members view their results in a comparative fashion, looking to see how they have responded vis a vis the other team members. This personal filter separates the individual team members from the system. The unique profile of the team as its own entity is lost.
A Proven Model
Teams exist to produce results. Research shows that the most successful teams have the means in place to take action and they build effective relationships to motivate and sustain action. The Team Diagnostic™ Assessment is built on these two fundamental axes: factors that optimize productivity and factors that promote positivity. Having the tools and materials is not enough to achieve outstanding results without a high level of positive engagement and ways to neutralize negativity.
The Team Diagnostic™ Assessment model defines seven separate productivity factors and seven positivity factors. This constellation of strengths provides a complete picture for high-performing teams.
Anonymous On-Line Administration
Team members go on-line to access the instrument; when the team is complete, responses are compiled for the whole team. The result is an anonymous and candid report from the team, including their responses to a customized set of open-ended questions. With anonymity protected teams members are more frank and the results more revealing.
The report contains a set of comprehensive full-color graphic illustrations that highlight a team’s strengths and opportunities. This is not a generic survey. These Team Diagnostic™ profiles provide a benchmark and detailed map for on-going team development.
