What the Team Dimensions Profile Can Do For You
HELPING PEOPLE WORK MORE EFFECTIVELY IN TEAMS
Successful team members don’t do the same thing at the same time. They do the right thing at the right time. And while team members work together toward a common goal, individuals still must play their separate parts in the process. As organizations rely more and more on teams to innovate, problem-solve, produce, and compete at the speed of change, understanding and capitalizing on individual approaches to group processes is the bottom line on creating high performance teams.
DISCOVER THE RIGHT ROLES FOR THE RIGHT PEOPLE
The Team Dimensions Profile is a unique self-directed learning instrument that helps individuals work from their strengths by identifying their most natural team role. The Team Dimensions Profile helps team members understand the importance of each role and furthers their appreciation of each individual’s contribution. The five roles are:
- Creator: generates ideas
- Advancer: communicates ideas
- Refiner: challenges ideas
- Executor: implements ideas
- Flexer: steps in to fill in the gaps
Although most people can stretch to perform most of the roles, these stretches are often stressful and energy consumining if they last too long. The most effective teams consist of individuals who play to their strengths and embrace their natural talents. The key is to realise that everyone has a preferred role that can be tapped to help teams create their best solutions.
