From Talented Individuals to Outstanding TEAMS
While many people talk about and use the concept, in KAR+CO we can actually measure on it! In close collaboration with Patrick Lencioni, Wiley (Everything DiSC®) has developed a tool that can measure your team’s levels of efficiency and cohesion.
Supported by Everything DiSC®, the tool helps participants understand their own Everything DiSC® style, and thereby clarify collaboration focuses within the team.
It takes a lot of effort to get all team members’ preferences and behaviours to play together in a productive and coherent way, but the payoff is huge – for the individual, the team and the organisation.
What can this program do?
The tool helps teams understand how it scores on the key elements of the Five Behaviours model: Trust, conflict, commitment, responsibility and results.
Each team member will also get an understanding of the team’s behaviour based on the Everything DiSC® model – D: Dominance, i: Influence, S: Stability and C: Competency-seeking personlities, as well as understanding how their own personality style contribute to the overall success of the team.
Patrick Lencioni highlights the dysfunctions that may arise in a team from:
- Trust: A team must be completely honest with each other in order to create the foundation for teamwork.
- Conflict: The unfiltered, constructive discussions and the exchange of ideas can only be made possible through vulnerability and trust, established in the first step.
- Commitment: When all members have expressed their ideas and opinions, the best one is chosen based on a constructive discussion. This creates the foundation for commitment both among the team members and for each individual team member.
- Responsibility: A clear action plan and distribution of roles allow team members to hold each other responsible, based on the standards set from the start.
- Results: The last goal of a team is to create ROI and business success, which will be made possible when the other four steps have been met. If all the previous steps are not met, the individual’s personal goals will be stronger than those of the team.
