We set a baseline. Using our proven diagnostic tools, we reveal the team's strengths and challenges. This research-based approach focuses on 14 measures of team competency. In order to know where to invest valuable time and money in team performance, it makes sense to start with a clear picture of what’s working and what’s not. Our diagnostic reveals this clearly and concisely. This measurement accelerates improved team performance.

We create an action plan that includes two parallel outcomes:

  • Measurable improvement in team competencies. This team works better together and takes what they learn into every other team they are on.
  • Measurable positive impact on business metrics for this team. This work is only justified by real business results.

We deliver world-class team coaching, consulting, skills training and accountability to help you:

  • Deliver improved results
  • Accelerate change
  • Create effective, responsive team culture
  • Increase production, control cost
  • Improve work habits, collaboration and ethics
  • Raise the bar on team performance and team accountability

With a follow-up assessment and comprehensive comparison report the team has a clear picture of where they started and where they have improved. The conversation leads naturally to … “Where do we go next?”

This is an approach focused entirely on assessing and improving total team performance, rather than on assessing individual personalities, styles and preferences or team leadership capabilities.

Team Performance Indicators™

TCI’s team performance methodology is built on a research-based platform of 14 Team Performance Indicators™ (TPIs). Assessment scores in these key areas clearly, and quickly reveal where to invest time and money to improve team performance. Team coaching sessions become a learning and development environment to improve in these key areas.

Teams know that the culture of the team has the power to support extraordinary collaboration or to undermine it. They know the conditions necessary for effective work together. They talk about:

It is safe on this team to speak your mind, openly without fear of reprisal. We can count on each other; we are reliable. We tell the truth even if it is uncomfortable or unpopular.

There is an atmosphere of mutual respect and genuine positive regard. Contempt and hostility are not tolerated. We empower other members of the team to contribute their best.

There is a strong sense of belonging to the team. The team celebrates and acknowledges accomplishments. Empathy, playfulness and humor are present.

Clear and efficient communication is valued over less direct approaches such as politicizing, gossiping, or stonewalling.
