Team-Work & Team-Roles 3rd Edition Starter Kit

9781588542939: Team-Work & Team-Roles 3rd Edition Starter Kit

Ideally, team-work proceeds sequentially from initiation to ideation, elaboration, and completion. But research shows that teams often diffuse their efforts by spending time on work they prefer to do, oftentimes skipping essential phases.

Pinpoint which phases of group work interest your teams most and identify which behavioral role(s) team members habitually play or ignore with Team-Work & Team-Roles. This 18-item assessment is a powerful tool to help individuals and teams understand and improve team performance.

Learning Outcomes

Identify preferred individual and team-roles and work phases

Learn how to deliberately cultivate the missing team-roles and work phases

Discover how to resolve team-roles that conflict

Explore the strengths and weaknesses of teams that are stuck in various team-work/team-role combinations

The model for Team-Work & Team-Roles is based on research in the areas of team-roles and team effectiveness. This model assigns 8 specialized roles to 4 phases of the Team-Work Cycle.

How It Works

Using an 18-item assessment, team members rank-order sets of 4 statements describing their manner of working in a team. A team profile (created by compiling individual profiles) and group discussion then help the teams to discover how they can modify their behavior to ensure roles and phases are addressed.
