Team Potential - Individual Assessment [Snapshot]

Single User - 7 Questions

A snapshot of how well your team is performing to it's potential - as perceived by an individual.

 

 

 
 
Exceptional Teams have high performing people with great morale who produce excellent results. My 20+ years spent exploring the art and science of leading teams as a manager, board chair, sports coach, speaker and consultant has revealed 7 common characteristics of exceptional teams. These 7 signs of an Exceptional Team serve as a powerful framework to help leaders and their teams track and improve their performance and results. Take the Team Potential Assessment [Snapshot] and discover what type of team you really lead or work in.
Best regards, David Koutsoukis.

To start building an Exceptional Team complete the seven questions below. You will get a graphic report on your team's strengths, areas for growth and guidance on how to improve.
 

Sign #1 Engaging Leadership
Exceptional Teams have Engaging Leaders who are able to connect with their people and lead, influence, manage and motivate them towards a positive future. As the old Greek saying goes, ‘A fish rots from the head first’, and this is also the case when it comes to teams. An Exceptional Team ‘thrives from the head first’ with the help of Engaging Leadership.

Sign #2 Crystal Clear Strategy
Exceptional Teams are ‘crystal clear’ about: where their team is headed (vision and mission); behavioural and performance expectations (values and goals); how they measure progress of team members and the team as a whole (personal and team KPIs); and how they will monitor results (regular team and personal performance feedback). Exceptional Teams not only have a great strategy, they over-communicate it so that everyone is crystal clear about their roles, goals and expectations.
How clear and well communicated is your team strategy?

Sign #3 Positive Productive People
Exceptional Teams have positive, productive people who don’t rely on extrinsic rewards or micromanagement to do their job. They have a sense of urgency and have a ‘can-do’ attitude. These characteristics see them focussing on solutions rather than problems. Positive Productive People are self-motivated, optimistic and encouraging of others. They bring positive energy to a team environment.

Sign #4 Quality Team Relationships
Exceptional Teams get along well and communicate effectively with each other. They develop and maintain quality communication and proactively promote positive relationships. ‘Quality Relationships’ is part of their values set, and people are encouraged and enabled to develop self-awareness, empathy and trust with one another.

Sign #5 Highly Engaged Employees
Exceptional Teams are full of people who love their job. They find their work stimulating and a challenge that enables them to achieve pre-determined goals. People recognise that what they do makes a positive difference and feel acknowledged for their contribution to the success of the team. Employees rate their employer highly and are great ambassadors for the company brand.
How engaged in their work are your employees?

Sign #6 Excellent Teamwork
Excellent Teams are efficient and effective because people work together well. There is a strong sense of community and uniqueness that makes people feel they belong to a ‘tribe’. Excellent Teams engender a sense of belonging, trust and mutual respect and a collective commitment to team goals.
How well do your people work together as a team?

Sign #7 Uplifting Culture
Exceptional Teams have an Uplifting Culture where people ‘lift’ each other with their thoughts, words and actions. You can feel the positive energy when you enter a workplace with a ‘LIFT’ culture. It is this feeling that attracts and retains great people and enables outstanding results.
