The key to organisational success lies in the ability of people to work effectively together. This only occurs when individuals understand their unique contribution and use these insights to implement change. The Team Management Profile is a research-based psychometric profiling tool for personal, team, and leadership development that delivers a framework to build high performing organisations. It gives individuals the self-knowledge and strategies required to improve their performance and work.
For the Individual
As a personal development tool, the Team Management Profile helps individuals discover their strengths as a contributing member of their team. When we do not enjoy the work we are doing, motivation is low and results in poor or average performance. The Profile asks individuals to reflect on their role and identify their preferences for certain tasks. They gain a holistic depiction of their individual approach to work. Often what is found is that people are taking on tasks that do not excite them, or provide a sense of accomplishment. When teams achieve a higher level of connection between their work preferences and job demands, it increases the team’s energy, enthusiasm, commitment and motivation, as people are undertaking work they enjoy.
Gaining an understanding of your personal Team Management Profile allows leaders to form a complete idea of their leadership style. This can be particularly useful for potential leaders and those looking to advance to more senior positions. As a detailed, work-focused feedback tool, the Profile provides insights into how an individual approaches work, and working with others. This allows them to develop strategies to improve working relationships, and harness their strengths to make progress in their career goals.
For the Team
From a team perspective, the Profile is even more invaluable. Once you have a map of the team’s collective strengths and areas for improvement, a team can easily strategise on maximising their strengths and minimising the gaps. Designed specifically for use in the workplace, the Team Management Profile provides a complete approach to building balanced, high performing teams. Understanding an individual’s strengths and approach to work, helps leaders to diversify their teams and ensure that there are as few development gaps as possible. Teams that understand each other’s approach to work are better collaborators, better communicators, and better at engaging with conflict resolution. Collectively, this allows for enhanced team productivity.
Where gaps do occur, the Team Management Profile assesses the likely impact of the least represented roles in the team. From this, an action plan can be created that might involve re-delegating tasks, outsourcing the skills needed, or implementing training programs. By linking the learning back to a concrete training and development plan, the Profile provides a proven framework and model to navigate change.
The TMP is about learning, not assessment. The Profile can be used throughout organisations to improve performance and achieve better business outcomes. The Profile provides a common language and framework for individuals, teams, and organisations to recognise their strengths in the workplace, enabling positive, lasting change. Constructive, work-focused information helps individuals understand why they work the way they do, and how they can develop strategies to improve how they work with others. The Profile and related materials provide insights about your work preferences in relation to leadership style, team building, interpersonal skills, and communication.
