Just as important, how do you measure the impact? What are the results of increasing individuals’ learning, knowledge and productivity? And can you see an optimal, and predictable, synergistic effect on productivity by developing and nurturing these teams? Essentially, is the whole actually greater than the sum of its parts?
To get at the “how,” use assessments. In the June issue of Talent Management magazine, Sandra Shullman said, “Used correctly, a personality assessment can facilitate self-awareness, which is a cornerstone of effectiveness in many work roles — leader, project manager, team member — while allowing a learner to drive his or her own development.”
Any CEO, talent manager or learning professional knows there are myriad personality assessments in the marketplace, all potentially capable of helping individuals become more productive via self-awareness. Can we translate that individual understanding into a team dynamic — a diverse, talented, powerful and cohesive unit — you bet.
