Our Approach

Understanding the Problem

Over the past two decades, the time spent by managers and employees in collaborative activities has ballooned by 50% or more. Yet, consider the following:

  • The Harvard Business Review recently reported on a study that found 75% of cross-functional teams are dysfunctional.
  • Another study reported that 86% of employees and executives cite the lack of collaboration or ineffective communication for workplace failures.

Clearly, we need to improve teamwork if we hope to achieve our business goals.

Proven Solution to Boost Team Performance

Scientists and companies have spent decades researching and testing both high performing and poor performing work teams. After thousands of teams from across the globe have been tested, we now know how to build effective work teams, whether they are leadership teams, cross-functional teams or teams on the shop floor.

We help clients measure, understand and improve their teams based solid empirical research so they can maximize performance.

There are six conditions that, when present, drive team performance. When they’re absent, teams miss their goals.

Measuring your team on the six conditions is easy with an online survey using a scientifically valid and reliable assessment tool. Teams that perform well on the assessment have been shown to be up to 80% more likely to succeed than teams that perform poorly on the survey.

Your team’s results are reported in a 25-page report with more than 15 charts and graphics. Together we will review the results to determine the areas most important to your team’s success. Next we develop a plan to help your group become a high performing team that achieves goals and is resilient to all types of challenges.
