Team Effectiveness Profile


Category: Assessments
Code: 203
Help teams learn how to surface, diagnose, and work through the issues that impede effective teamwork. For more than 15 years, the TEP has helped teams eliminate or reduce blockages in the 5 vital areas of team activity.

How It Works

The Team Effectiveness Profile (TEP) has been designed to function as a self-administered learning instrument. The TEP yields an overall Team Effectiveness Score as well as separate scores for each of the 5 areas indicating the general health of the group and blockages that hinder team effectiveness.

These 5 vital areas are:

          1. Mission, Vision, and Goals;
          2. Team Roles;
          3. Operating Processes;
          4. Interpersonal Relationships;
          5. Interteam Relationships.

Learning Outcomes

• Identify issues that block effectiveness

• Reduce or eliminate problems that can drain a group’s energy

• Maximise the group’s productive efforts.

Uses for the TEP

Appropriate for any type of team and all levels of team members and leaders, the TEP can be used as a stand-alone instrument or as a component in a larger team-building programme. The TEP can be used to:

• Measure pre-team building conditions

• Orient new teams to potential problems

• Unblock struggling teams

• Determine post- team-building results

We recommend administering the TEP periodically, as issues will change over a period a time.
