The TVS is a focused, practical tool to improve team efficacy. It can be seen as a “team 360” — but instead of evaluating an individual, team members (and team leaders) together evaluate the team as a whole.

TVS Applications

Change
In the change process, the bonds of teams are tested. High trust, highly effective teams are capable of leading change and maintaining (even increasing) performance during the process. Others implode. The TVS is ideal for strengthening teams that will be critical in a change process.

Team Efficacy
Just because a group of people is working together, they are not necessarily a team. The TVS identifies the areas where the group really is a team… and where they are not. Because the TVS dimensions are actionable, the results naturally lead to effective action planning for improvement.

What part of your team is adding full value?

ROI
In the US, companies spend over $150b annually on training and development, yet only around 30% of that training translates to performance change (INSIDE CHANGE, Freedman & Ghini). To what extent is a development program actually improving results? TVS offers a rapid process for measuring these results, both in terms of team dynamics and the performance outcomes of the improvement.

 

TVS HELPS YOU…

• Strengthen team effectiveness.

• Prepare for new challenges and changes.

• Open dialogue about the team’s dynamics.

Is your workgroup a team?  What dynamics are moving you ahead – and what’s holding you back?  It only takes 10 minutes to find out.
