Team Effectiveness Profile

ITEM: Select below ⏷

SKU: 0203E4FG

The Team Effectiveness Profile (TEP) aids teams in recognizing potential impediments to performance by evaluating their engagement in five key areas of team effectiveness: mission, vision, and goals; team roles; operating processes; interpersonal relationships; and inter-team relationships.

Team Building

Self-assessment and workshop

Facilitator Guide (Print) Assessment (Print or Digital)

Intact work groups (groups that have some work history)

1.5 hours


The Team Effectiveness Profile (TEP) is an assessment and workshop that assists groups in improving their output and work satisfaction. Under normal circumstances, issues blocking a group's effectiveness may not be apparent. However, issues remaining undisclosed can drain a group's energy and undermine its productive efforts. The TEP was developed to help groups systematically identify these exact types of issues. Don't let undisclosed issues drain your group's energy and undermine their efforts – use the TEP to unlock their full potential.

How it works

The TEP was designed to function as a self-administered learning instrument. Everything required is contained in the Participant Guide: directions for completing the Inventory, scoring, and interpretation. Although there is no time limit imposed on the completion of the TEP, groups are usually finished responding to the items in 15 to 20 minutes.

Individual scoring can be completed easily in 10 to 15 minutes. Development of the profile will vary, depending on the number of people that comprise the group. A group facilitator may wish to structure and guide this process in the following ways:

  • Clarify the group being evaluated. (People may be members of more than one group.)
  • Emphasize the need for candid responses so that the group may benefit from the opportunity to discuss areas that are troubling to the group as a whole.
  • Assure the group of the anonymity of their individual responses.
  • Expand on the definitions used to evaluate the 50 statements.
  • Assist in collecting, reporting, and comparing group data.
  • Help the group confront its more sensitive issues.

Learning outcomes

The Team Effectiveness Profile is most appropriate for intact work groups – groups that have some history of working together. It can also be used to prepare a newly formed group for the kinds of issues that may block its success in the future. Uses include:

  • Measuring performance before and after team building initiatives.
  • Unblocking struggling teams.
  • Orienting new teams to potential problems.

Uses and applications

The purpose of the Team Effectiveness Profile is to help groups improve their output and work satisfaction. By doing so, participants will be able to:

  • Identify issues that block effectiveness.
  • Reduce or eliminate problems that can drain a group's energy.
  • Maximize the group's productive efforts.
  • Gain valuable insights to improve team dynamics.

What to order

Facilitator Guide

Order one guide per trainer. The Facilitator Guide is designed as a resource booklet for participants. Arranged in an instrument/workbook format, the Facilitator Guide contains a 50-item inventory, scoring form, interpretive guide, descriptions of the five categories, charting of results, and questions to help respondents deepen their analysis of group issues that may be affecting team performance.

Paper Assessment 5-Pack

Order one pack for up to five participants. The print version is ideal for facilitators who prefer to oversee the scoring and administration of the assessment if you don't know who the participants will be before the class begins or if your learners do not have easy access to computers. It includes pressure-sensitive forms for scoring to aid manual tabulation.

Online Assessment

Order one per participant. The online assessment is administered to participants through the HRDQ Assessment Center and includes personalized reporting, full-color charts, interpretive information, worksheets, and action planning. A detailed report is delivered electronically to the facilitator/administrator when complete.
