Improving team performance is an everlasting need that puts pressure on the whole team and especially the team leader. Now there is a simple process to jump start that effort: the Team Leader View™ — a tool to leverage the most fundamental wisdom of leadership: what gets measured gets managed.
The Team Leader View™ is a powerful lens that quickly and effectively outlines the development opportunities for team leadership.
This convenient online diagnostic gives team leaders a way to compare their view of the team’s strengths and weaknesses, to a proven model of team effectiveness used by thousands of teams worldwide. The diagnostic also shifts the mindset from leadership of individual performers, to leadership of the team as a whole. After all, at the end of the day this is how leaders are measured: by the results of the team. A leader may be a great communicator but that is inconsequential if the team doesn’t communicate well.
In this way the Team Leader View™ is also leadership feedback. For team leaders it is a measure of the impact of their leadership.
The Team Leader View™ is a diagnostic tool based on the same proven model as the Team Diagnostic™. The online survey takes about 20 minutes to complete; the resulting report provides team leaders with clear direction for team improvement based on their view of team performance.
For example, it’s not enough that the team leader is personally effective at setting goals and strategies to achieve them. If the team does not have the same strength there is room for team leadership improvement.
The Team Diagnostic™ model looks at two dimensions:
1. Productivity Competencies- the conditions necessary for teams to be productive
2. Positivity Competencies- the conditions necessary to create a high-performing culture
The model defines seven attributes in each of these two areas:
- Team Leadership
- Alignment (mission & purpose)
- Goals & Strategies
- Decision Making
- Proactive (creative initiative)
- Values Diversity
- Constructive Interaction
Teams that excel at both are high performing and sustainable: creative, adaptable and resilient.
For managers and team leaders that want to identify their leadership effectiveness and deduct crisp clear data for their future developmental plans.
