Team Compass

A tool for quick analysis of team structures

Personnel managers, trainers or coaches face new challenges in the face of rapid changes in the world of work. Increasing complexity and ever shorter innovation cycles ensure less hierarchy and more self-responsible, self-organizing, self-learning teams.

All the more important that these teams work smoothly and successfully — a task that you can solve with the Team Compass in a highly professional and efficient manner.

No problem with the Team Compass: It gives you a quick overview of the individual personalities and potentials - and how these affect the cooperation in the team.

Expand your qualification with a standardized approach for greater efficiency — and recognize at a glance who is sitting in front of you and how they can optimally use their potentials to benefit the team. Identify dynamics and conflicting energies even faster and develop the right strategies in the fastest way.

How our Team Compass can do this

The Team Compass serves as a scientifically sound tool in diagnosis and intervention. It supports a systemic and process-oriented way of working. It shows your client their individual and basic personality traits and potentials in an appreciative way and informs them how they affect the cooperation in the team.

After conducting the Potential Analyses of the team members as with the Professional Compass, the Team Compass extends the evaluation by an additional perspective of interactions and group dynamics.

You get in the differentiated evaluation:

  • graphical and numerical representations of each team member's personality
  • multi-page, individual evaluation as in the Professional Compass for each team member in text form
  • a merge of the individual results to the Team Compass with further graphical views

In this way, you can make developments, potentials, but also fields of tension in the team already accomplished instantly visible. As with the other compasses, the simple presentation of results and the interpretation aids ensure quick acceptance of the results. Optimization options, current problems and disruptions in the team can be discussed immediately and necessary or desired changes can be initiated directly.

You can use the Team Compass both at the beginning of a development process and to control progress.
