Your Dream Team

At the beginning of 2011, Linda Wasserman posted an article about potential danger zones within teams. Ideally, a team, face-to-face or virtual will have procedures in place designed to help teams at best avoid such danger zones or at least be able to deal with them in a positive manner. What can also help is to survey the team and ask where they see the team in the stages of team development. But, you say, will the answers be candid and forthright? Our reply, if the responses are anonymous, they may well be both.

Introducing the Team Success Survey. To the right  on your screen under the heading Sites We Like, you will find a new listing for the Team Success Survey. This free, 32-question survey asks participants to respond anonymously to questions about how they see their team performing. They can responds from “Almost Always” to “Almost Never.” Once everyone on a team completes the survey, we can create a Summary Report. That report can be a great conversation starter and help address substantive issues that may be preventing a team from moving into the next stage of team development.

For more information, you can email either of us. Those email addresses are on the About Page.

Your comments are always welcome!
