It’s a rare team that effortlessly works together like a well-practiced orchestra. Teams are complex, dynamic, and often hard to understand. More often, teams struggle with inadequate trust, ineffective conflict management, lack of clear roles and accountability, confused priorities, silos, and broken communication. Any one of these can derail a team; a number of them together can be crippling.
But if you don’t understand the problem, you can’t fix it.
When a team isn’t operating as effectively as it needs to, a team assessment reveals why great people with good intentions aren’t producing great results.
The assessment process helps teams members examine their behaviors, mindsets, and patterns, identify the sources of the team’s challenges, and highlight the team’s core strengths.
The result is a clear picture of what’s working and what isn’t.
This balanced approach helps the team get clear on their current state and what’s most important to work on going forward. Teams usually cringe as they begin to explore the results, then sigh with relief when the issues are finally on the table.
