Focused, evidence-based diagnostics
Feedback that engages team members
Leads to clear development actions
Understanding where you are now, helps you to understand where you need to go. Our psychologists have worked with countless questionnaires, surveys and psychometrics so we know a good one when we see it. We can recommend a diagnostic for almost anything you may want to know about your team. And if we don’t know an existing tool then we are also experts at designing bespoke diagnostics.
We design bespoke approaches built around your values, strategy and stakeholders and make them easily accessible via online apps. Getting a measure of current performance, and its drivers, supports you to understand where to focus change effort. It will also enable you to evaluate how far you have come.
Raising a team’s self-awareness is a development intervention in itself, enabling better collaboration, higher levels of trust and better decision-making.
Here are some examples of our current favourite tools. Please get in touch for a discussion about these, or any other team tool you would like to look at.
Neuro-Wise Team Survey
The Neuro-wise Team Survey, developed by Insight’s Client Director Paul Chudleigh. It is based on the latest research on the factors that enables our brains to be at their most effective. Paul has also used more than 25 years’ of experience working with leaders and teams to design a survey, and accompanying team coaching programme that creates lasting change.
Looking at factors including psychological safety, how well a team utilises the diversity of individuals in it and the effectiveness of team processes and meetings. The ultimate aim for teams is to achieve “team flow”.
The R@W Team, developed by Kathryn McEwen, measures seven factors that support how resilient a team is. The results highlight changes that a team can make in order to perform at their best.
In a world where more and more is required of teams, making changes to support sustainable delivery is crucial.
Lencioni’s Five Behaviours of Cohesive Teams
Lencioni’s model (also known as Five Dysfunctions of a Team) is a well-used and researched model. Working from the basis that building trust is the foundation of team performance, the accompanying survey enables teams to focus development on the areas needing greatest change.
Saville Wave Work Roles
Saville’s Wave personality questionnaire is one of the most robust and well-validated in the market. The Work Roles report provides reliable and useful information about the preferences of team members as well as a comprehensive team profile. This tool enables great discussions about the different styles within a team as well as the strengths, and gaps, in the team as a whole.
