The Team Essentials Report is a comprehensive examination of your team’s performance. The report provides a high-level view of your team’s performance first by the 6 Key Success Factors of Team Performance and then by each factor and its sub-components. For greater understanding of your teams performance your results are compared to our overall data base of Team Essentials Team participants.
Next are the Lists of 10. These are your top ten results, bottom 10 results, and the most debatable 10 items in your survey. The most debatable list details the items where there is most disagreement among your team members.
The appendix provides a ranked listing of all assessment items along with their standard deviations. Also included in the appendix is an action planner that walks participants through the process of improving team performance.
As a team leader or consultant we recommend that you dig deep into the data for a detailed explanation of the team’s performance. When working with a typical team we recommend that you share the high level results and the Lists of 10.
Our Team Report shows you the team average and comparative norms in an intuitive graph of the distribution of answers broken out simply as disagreement, ambivalence and agreement. Your report is easy to read and intuitive as 1,2,3. Pictorially, you can immediately see how your team did on each item and the degree of consensus. Technically, we are using a dual axis horizontal stacked bar graph with multiple layers of mean data to show you a visual and intuitive display of mean and distribution.

Taking a Team Assessment is useless, and can cause a decrease in performance, if it is not acted upon. The key to increased team performance is to create an improvement action plan that is executed upon. Your report provides an abundance of data to work on. The key is to narrow down your results into actionable steps to improve team performance. It is better to choose a few items to work on than it is to choose too many. There are a few ways to approach your improvement action planner. The data can be shared with your team and worked on together. The action planner can be solely completed by the leader. And or you can engage a team coach to facilitate your next steps and improvement plan.
