Ways To Use The Team Interaction Profile™ (TIP)


Ways to Use TIP:
  • A diagnostic tool prior to team building to better understand why a team is not performing as expected
  • A pre/post assessment to measure the impact of targeted interventions 
  • As part of a Cultural Audit to determine how inclusive the organization is
  • A comparison between high versus low performing teams who do the same kind of work to determine what is different in how the members interact together on the team that is producing better results
  • An opportunity to determine how well new hires have been on-boarded

Data for each team is analyzed based on the differences that are most relevant for that team, such as race/ethnicity, nationality, gender, years of service, age/generational, location, organizational levels, etc.  For one senior executive team that had gone through a merger in the previous year, the most significant difference was whether they were working as one cohesive team, or segregating based on whether they had come from former company A, former company B, or had been hired post-merger.


One trend that we are seeing indicates that those with less years of service have lower inclusion scores.  While it takes time to establish relationships on any team, if we don't proactively include everyone, we unintentionally exclude them.  What is the impact on individual performance, teamwork and productivity if those with less than five years of service are systematically less included?
