How to turn individuals into a team?

By gaining insight into the dynamics within a group and individual talents and motivations, you forge successful teams. With the ‘Team Development’ module, you effectively identify and develop team qualities.


Team analysis creates effective teams

In a competitive and rapidly changing world, it is essential to form effective teams that leverage individual qualities. The strength of this module lies in providing in-depth insight into the talents and motivations of each team member. By combining all these insights, you gain a clear picture of collective strengths and pitfalls. This enables teams to collaborate better and harness each other’s talents. Additionally, the module assists in identifying any ‘talent gaps’ or overlaps within the team. Team analysis enhances communication, collaboration, and effectiveness by fostering shared understanding of each individual’s unique contributions. Furthermore, it motivates teams to focus on goals aligned with existing talents and create targeted development plans that strengthen the team as a whole.

The 4 steps of team development

Teams are the heart of organizations, as that’s where the real work happens. If teams are not in sync, success for an organization is unlikely.

Follow the steps below to assemble a high-performing team with members who understand, reinforce, and complement each other. This results in a more effective and resilient team, ready to innovate alongside the organization.

1.) Gain insight into all talents of team members

All team members complete a talent analysis, providing each team member with insight into their unique talents, qualities, pitfalls, and areas for development. Afterward, review the team overview that consolidates all the team’s talents.

2.) Identify key team competences

Determine the key competencies necessary for effective team functioning. Then, engage in a team discussion around questions such as:

  • What unique talents does each team member bring?
  • What actions should we take (or avoid) based on our talents to collaborate effectively?
  • How can we best allocate work based on the talents present?
  • How can we leverage our talents to effectively solve team problems?

3.) Encourage open communication

Encourage team members to discuss their talents, motivations, and expectations with each other. This fosters mutual understanding and respect, leading to improved collaboration and seamless communication.

4.) Evaluate and optimise

Utilize the team development module to evaluate progress. Discuss whether team talents are still being effectively utilized. Then determine which minor improvements based on existing team talents are necessary to make the team even more productive.
