The Team Management Profile
Imagine getting everyone in your team on to the same page and then finding a way to constructively work together to harness the strengths in your team.
The Team Management Profile is a personalised report, which gives individuals valuable insights into the way they prefer to work and their preferred role within a team. This feedback helps to improve team processes and performance which improves motivation and job satisfaction.
The Team Management Profile highlights an individual’s major and related areas of work preference, including information focused on:
• work preferences
• decision making
• leadership strengths
• interpersonal skills
• team building
• management styles
Opportunities and Obstacles Profile (QO2)
Wouldn’t you like to find out how you approach risks, how you deal with adversity, how to measure your levels of optimism and goal seeking energy and how you focus on time?
In the workplace, it is important to have balance. – This balance needs to exist between the people who focus on the opportunities (without seeing potential obstacles and making hasty decisions) and those who focus too much on the obstacles (without ever allowing new projects or ventures to proceed).
The Profile provides personalised feedback on how an individual will see and respond to new situations and changes, solve problems, whether they sustain their focus on goals, how they handle risk and whether they take a broad view that encompasses past, present and future scenarios.
This Profile is commonly for Management and Leadership Programs, Coaching and Mentoring Programs, Individual and Team Development Programs, and One-on-One Executive Development Programs.
This is a great personal and professional development opportunity for you and your team.
Window on Work Values and Organisational Values Profiles
Find out how pinpointing your own values and identifying the values of your organisation provides invaluable feedback.
Values have a major influence on how individuals approach their work. Values drive our decisions, cause us to defend what we believe in, and determine our behaviour in the workplace. Values are often a major source of conflict.
The Window on Work Values and Organisational Values Profiles will help individuals and teams understand their values and whether they are aligned with those of the organisation. Once the core values are identified, the team can begin developing its own Team Values Statement and Team Charter.
Work out what you stand for and make it clear to your colleagues and your clients.
The Strategic Team Development Profile
Do you need a full organisational review?
Address eight fundamental questions that all teams need to resolve in order to perform effectively:
• Who are we?
• Where are we now?
• Where are we going?
• How will we get there?
• What is expected of us?
• What support do we need?
• How effective are we?
• What recognition do we get?
The result will be an accurate road map for the ongoing development of your team which allows us to identify the underlying issues that can be the difference between good performance and poor performance. You will gain a clear picture of where your team’s strengths and weaknesses lie. From there, we can determine what intervention is needed. This may include the development of strategic or operational plans, training and development, performance management, team- building or reward programs.
