Building Profitable Teams

Individual contribution to team dynamics is one of the most important aspects within an organisational environment. Provided that it is properly coordinated, this leads to great success. Too often, teams struggle to perform due to a multitude of factors. As a senior leader or team member, what can you do to create an environment of high-performing and profitable teams?

Based on our work with over 2500+ organisations and 20 years of experience, we researched the idea of high performing teams versus teams that fail to start. Our research focused on people’s individual contribution and how it affects team lineups and overall performance. This led to the birth of a strategic contribution assessment that provides insight into:

  • The natural contribution of people in relation to strategic execution and their areas of performance;
  • Gain insight into how team members tackle complex problems;
  • Learn how dominant coalitions can influence groupthink, performance and overall team behaviour;
  • Create profitable teams through better understanding and alignment within your organisation.

The profitable teams approach helps you, senior leaders and teams to allocate the people needed to enable the required changes in specific areas of the business. In concrete terms, it helps to draw up a clear talent succession plan. You will also gain insight into the development areas of your team, team dynamics and individual (leadership) development. The application of this framework and associated tools help your people to perform better in their work and collaborate better with colleagues.

Teams that start working together based on this approach will see immediate results because the insights are immediately applicable in the workplace.

Human Insight has developed best practices and practical tools to help organisations, leaders and employees work with the insights that the profitable teams approach has to offer. Based on our success with other organisations and best practices, we have found that our approach helps to uncover the team-level behavioural aspects that need to be addressed to be successful in strategy execution and overall team performance. Where the teams start with self-awareness and move on to understanding their role in the team and then the role of the team members in relation to their unique responsibilities and result areas. Creating an environment for peer-to-peer feedback and rich learning.
