The Model

Research confirms interpersonal factors are overwhelmingly the key accelerators and inhibitors of Team effectiveness. The Team Elements model equips Teams to understand, navigate and optimize their unique Team dynamics.

Our research has identified four qualities that factor significantly into a Team’s effectiveness at any given time:

  1. Quality of Conversation
  2. Quality of Relationship
  3. Quality of Work
  4. Quality of Outcome

Within these four qualities are 16 specific elements that consistently shape Team members’ experiences and determine the Team’s collective effectiveness.

Visualize Your Team’s Potential

Through the Team Elements process, participants discover which of these specific behaviors and attributes are contributing to their success or failure. The model and Team Elements approach yield hidden insights that create a roadmap for improving the Team’s effectiveness. Even highly performing teams benefit from heightened awareness and insight into the factors that drive their success and how they could further increase their impact.

The Team Elements model helps Teams:

  • Establish a shared language for understanding and navigating Team dynamics.
  • Visualize a complete picture of how the Team operates.
  • Quickly pinpoint the Team’s most important strengths and what is holding it back.
  • Benchmark the state of the Team’s effectiveness to measure future progress.

The Approach

The Team Elements approach surfaces valuable insights and results in intentional change that drives ongoing, improved effectiveness for any Team.

Team Ownership and Measurable Progress

Team Elements incorporates a research-based model, skillfully facilitated dialogue, targeted coaching, and real-time action planning. Our approach sets the stage for Teams to fully own how they operate and define a plan that honors their unique qualities and situation.

Our Team Elements approach helps Teams:

  • Own how they will improve their effectiveness.
  • Engage in a dialogue by the Team, about the Team.
  • Choose where to target their limited time and resources.
  • Generate data-driven insights and targeted action plans for improvement.
  • Create a shared vision and track tangible progress over time.

Our approach values and includes every voice equally to:

  • Create a fully informed understanding of the Team dynamic.
  • Incorporate all the unique, diverse viewpoints on the Team.
  • Drive “pride in ownership” and shared accountability through inclusive participation.

Relevant and Pragmatic

With Team Elements there is no judgment based on artificial standards of some idealized Team archetype. Every outcome and action plan is unique.

Our highly skilled facilitators use data to drive a targeted dialogue, surfacing unspoken and unknown issues to yield greater awareness of diverse perspectives and aspirations.

The Team then decides where to focus, how much and which actions to take, including how and whether to move forward despite any identified differences. Ongoing follow up includes coaching and check-ins to support progress and maintain accountability. The Team can track progress and easily re-assess at any time.

Our approach includes a variety of delivery options, such as engaging a Team Elements Certified Consultant or through a corporate subscription.
