We started by providing feedback and coaching on the results of personality questionnaires and 360° feedback to help each team member understand where their natural strengths lie, why they find some things more taxing, and the things they are never likely to be great at.
Once they understood how they could develop in order to play to their individual strengths, we worked with the team as a whole. The first session focussed on creating alignment behind a shared vision and goals. But the most impactful part came when we discussed the Team Profile, the combined data from their individual assessments. Suddenly they could see their challenge clearly: several of them were in roles that were completely incompatible with their natural strengths.
