Does your team "get you?"
Updated: Aug 13
Team performance is influenced by complicated dynamics. We all admire great sports teams, not just for what they accomplish but also for HOW they achieve success. If you are a member of a team, whether at work or on the playing field, it’s important to really know yourself and to know your team mates.
We humans are complex creatures of infinite potential. When we can communicate behaviours and feelings using a common language, good things follow: better response to conflict, reduction of stress, better problem solving, just better everything...and above all, a clarity of insight into how each member of the team fits into the bigger picture.
Personality assessments like the effective DiSC model offer non-judgmental tools that can really help a team shine. These assessments provide that common language for understanding team behaviour.
When you know yourself and when your team “gets you”, you can leverage your strengths and adapt your behaviour to achieve maximum results. So can your colleagues. It simply works.
Let me know if you are interested in a team assessment. They are easy and can be done online. I partner with a behavioural analyst who facilitates the discussion. Together we love to show teams what they’re made of!
