Looking for a way to jump-start your team working better together? Capacity Group has been doing this with teams for nearly 20 years.
Whether it’s a newly established team, one formed during Covid-19, one working remotely, a growing team, or a team struggling to work together productively, each can benefit from exploring the values and personality traits of its team members. This results in better communication and ability to perform.
One way Capacity Group has helped teams is by using the Hogan Assessments tool. Exploring a team’s shared values and preferences and helping to create meaning and understanding of the “why” behind behaviors is part of the work in team building. Understanding dominant team personality behaviors and building knowledge of the benefits and limitations of those traits work toward increasing performance for the overall benefit of everyone.
Using the three parts of the Hogan Assessments (MVPI, HPI, and HDS) is one way to accelerate team momentum by creating meaning and self-awareness of how each individual can better contribute to the organization’s overall benefit. When teams have a sense of connection and purpose, there is an increase in overall performance. Furthermore, individuals walk away with new insights about their style and approach to work.
Using the MVPI report from the Hogan Assessment generates insight into the exploration of the values and preferences of your team members. This information reveals what motivates team members and helps leaders create a rewarding team and workplace culture. The results are increased engagement and low turnover. In addition, teams explore how their values mix with other team members, which facilitates their ability to work together.
Understanding team members’ everyday behaviors through The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) can provide insight into collective dominant behavior styles and how those behaviors create advantages or limitations for the team, particularly in the context of the team’s purpose. Capacity Group designs customized sessions to enable teams to know how to balance and leverage their styles.
The Hogan Development Survey (HDS) is used to understand when individual personality strengths may become over or underused under stress, creating a limitation for a leader. When team members share the same derailers, understanding what triggers are in play and how to manage for optimal performance is an important part of strengthening the team. The sessions with Capacity Group help teams understand how to identify and manage the derailers.
