Team building is much more than putting people together in a meeting to work on a project. The chemistry of the group will affect the outcome of the team’s efforts. The ability of a team to work effectively is greatly influenced by the individual characteristics of the team members and their synergy. While a team can adjust to accommodate synergy issues, the fewer adjustments necessary, the more efficiently the team will function. In managing a team, the more data available to help you understand the characteristics of the team members the more focused the management of that team. Knowing the strengths and weaknesses of team members can make the difference between a team that fails in its mission and one that produces positive results beyond your expectations. The Team Analysis is the catalyst that optimises the team’s potential and can lead to exceptional performance and the attainment of team goals.
