To create effective and engaged teams
The central question is, how can we achieve this?
Research shows that we in many cases perform better as a team than as individuals. But, it doesn’t end there. Because, how do we create effective teams that have both a high productivity and high engagement, as well as a clear direction forward and insight into how each team member’s differences can benefit the entire team.
Leadership in the right context
It is important for leaders to be able to place themselves in the right context, in other words, in relation to their team and the team in relation to their given tasks.
To do this, we work with a three-step process:
- You: your leadership strengths and weaknesses
- You + your team: group dynamic between the leader and team
- You + your team + working tasks: Leader and team in relation to their goals and priorities.
The leader’s ability to navigate in this context is the key to enable the team to reach their goals and deliver the desirable results.
Team Discovery provides the context
Team Discovery is a brand new module in the PI solution that provides a unique support for leaders in navigating in this context. Please note that you have free access to Team Discovery until you organisation renews its 2021 PI license subscription. During the 2nd half of 2020, we were in contact with many of our customers to introduce them to Team Discovery. We will continue to inform about Team Discovery this year to show all our customers the great value this new module can provide.

If you have access to Team Discovery, you will find it under the Design menu in the PI System. So if you want to get started using Team Discovery already today, we recommend that you watch this short introduction video to get a step-by-step introduction.
