Effective Team Member - Participant Guide
Organizations are finding that they can accomplish their goals and reach new heights of performance by harnessing the collective energy of teams. But arriving at these results is not easy, nor does it happen overnight. Creating a team-based environment takes a lot of effort and coordination. We know that a team is only as good as the sum of its parts, so what makes an effective team member?
The Effective Team Member Profile helps individuals understand what it takes to be a viable and potent member of a team - and how their behavior clearly indicates the extent to which they are (or aren't) effective.The 36-item profile focuses on six "Effectiveness Factors":
- Understanding team direction
- Clarifying team roles
- Showing commitment
- Encouraging open communication
- Learning continuously
- Sharing leadership responsibilities
How It Works
Each individual creates two profiles. The first is based on the individual's own perceptions of his or her effectiveness. The second is created from feedback given by other team members. Finally, action planning assists team members in transferring what they have learned to their day-to-day efforts. Teams may also discuss their collective effectiveness and identify ways to improve overall team performance. The ETMP is effective when used as a standalone training session as well as part of a larger program.
