Assessments | VS Toolkit | Team Vital Signs

Capturing essential indicators of any team’s health, the TVS assessment delivers rapid, accurate insight into team climate – and offers clear feedback on the path to peak performance. Used worldwide at organizations ranging from Komatsu to Siemens, TVS is the best-in-class tool to measure and improve the people-side of team performance.

TVS equips your organization or clients to answer essential questions: Is your workgroup a team? What dynamics are moving you ahead – and what’s holding you back? What’s next for you to leverage your EQ to improve the people-side of performance and as a result, team performance? 

Why TVS?

The Team Vital Signs assessment is the ideal blend of insight and practicality – and it only takes 10 minutes.

TVS is a validated, statistically reliable research process to identify areas assisting and interfering with team performance. 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.
