Team Elements enables any Team to accelerate its effectiveness. Our robust yet practical approach combines research-based tools and skilled facilitation to deliver measurable improvement.
Research confirms interpersonal factors are overwhelmingly the key accelerators and inhibitors of Team effectiveness. The Team Elements model equips Teams to understand, navigate and optimize their unique Team dynamics.
Our research has identified four qualities that factor significantly into a Team’s effectiveness at any given time:
Within these four qualities are 16 specific elements that consistently shape Team members’ experiences and determine the Team’s collective effectiveness.
Through the Team Elements process, participants discover which of these specific behaviors and attributes are contributing to their success or failure. The model and Team Elements approach yield hidden insights that create a roadmap for improving the Team’s effectiveness. Even highly performing teams benefit from heightened awareness and insight into the factors that drive their success and how they could further increase their impact.
The Team Elements approach surfaces valuable insights and results in intentional change that drives ongoing, improved effectiveness for any Team.
Team Elements incorporates a research-based model, skillfully facilitated dialogue, targeted coaching, and real-time action planning. Our approach sets the stage for Teams to fully own how they operate and define a plan that honors their unique qualities and situation.
With Team Elements there is no judgment based on artificial standards of some idealized Team archetype. Every outcome and action plan is unique.
Our highly skilled facilitators use data to drive a targeted dialogue, surfacing unspoken and unknown issues to yield greater awareness of diverse perspectives and aspirations.
The Team then decides where to focus, how much and which actions to take, including how and whether to move forward despite any identified differences. Ongoing follow up includes coaching and check-ins to support progress and maintain accountability. The Team can track progress and easily re-assess at any time.
Our approach includes a variety of delivery options, such as engaging a Team Elements Certified Consultant or through a corporate subscription.
Our proprietary Team Elements app provides a quick and convenient way to engage Team members, share valuable insights and conduct check-ins to monitor progress.
The app can be used on any device – phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop – across all operating systems. Team members use the app to provide their input about the Team’s most important strengths and weaknesses. Participants complete the Team Elements survey in five minutes or less using the app. Instant reports of the aggregate data provide clear, actionable insights to help you have a meaningful dialogue about how your Team can be more effective.
Data gathered using the app is aggregated, and no personally identifiable information is collected. Team members share their opinions without worrying about individual attribution. Your data is securely stored and accessible to the Team leader at all times.
We encourage Teams to use the app frequently. The more Teams become aware of their dynamic strengths and weaknesses, the better they can optimize their outcomes.
