Assessments Specifically Designed for Team Coaching

  • The Team Diagnostic Survey: The Team Diagnostic Survey.  Based on the book by Richard Hackman Leading Teams: Setting the Stage for Great Performances. The Team Diagnostic Survey (TDS) is an instrument taken by members of a work team to diagnose the how well the team is structured, supported, and led. It also provides an assessment of how well members work together, and of members’ motivation and satisfaction.
  • The Team Emotional Intelligence Survey: Team Emotional Intelligence is a team culture created by a set of norms and expectations that build a productive social and emotional environment (e.g., trust, team identity) that leads to constructive interactions, collaborative work processes, and team effectiveness. Research indicates that Norms are the most effective and efficient way to manage behaviour in teams (norms are the informal rules or expectations that regulate behaviour and make it predictable.) The Team EI Survey helps a team move towards higher performance.

  • Myers Briggs Type Indicator: The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) personality inventory is to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful in people’s lives. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in the behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment.
  • NBI Thinking Preferences Assessment (NBI):  A psychometric instrument based on insights from neuroscience and psychology that has implications for how we communicate, make decisions, solve problems, innovate and more.  A tool also useful for helping teams understand the range of cognitive-emotional styles within the group as well as the group’s overall pattern.
