Understanding team dynamics
to unlock potential
Teams are the powerhouse of an organisation. The most successful of these working relationships are underpinned by a recognition and appreciation of how personal behavioural styles can impact on others; both positively and negatively . TeamScape describes how these different preferences, within a team, can be leveraged for success.
What is Facet5 TeamScape?
Simple, yet highly impactful, TeamScape demonstrates a team’s dynamics powerfully and succinctly; identifying the culture of the team, how relationships are likely to work, and importantly how the work of the team will be managed and delivered.
It does this by bringing together the individual Facet5 profiles of team members, combining them to show how the preferences of individuals come together to support the work of the team.
The TeamScape model helps to create a picture of how individuals naturally prefer to organise their work and participate in the team. Each TeamScape profile contains:
The Teamscape model also helps teams understand how they reach agreement and resolve disputes, in particular their;
Natural or preferred approach
The extent to which the team apply rules and processes
How they may respond to the intensity and stress involved in disputes
TeamScape supports individuals to build understanding, not only of themselves, but of the preferences of others. It is this understanding that underpins better relationships within the team, increased collaboration and communication.
How it works
Step 1 – Individuals complete a Facet5 Questionnaire
Individual team members complete a Facet5 personality questionnaire. The questionnaire consists of 106 questions and takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. It’s available in 33 languages. The responses are then compared to a group of ‘like’ people (commonly called a norm group). A sten score is calculated for each factor and sub-factor. It is these scores which are presented in a Facet5 profile and TeamScape.
Step 2 – Facet5 profiles are combined to produce a TeamScape report
Each Facet5 profile is combined to provide a range of easy to interpret data sets. TeamScapes visual approach shows the diversity within the group and the interplay between the Facet5 Factors quickly and easily.
Step 3 – TeamScape Facilitation
Deeper understanding comes from a TeamScape workshop which provides an opportunity for the team to review and explore their profiles. The workshop helps team members understand how they contribute, the preferences of others and the impact this has on the team and its work.
