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.
Uses and Applications
The ETMP is effective when used as a standalone training session as well as part of a larger program.
- Recognize the importance of individual contributions to team success
- Gain insight into one’s effectiveness
- Learn ways to improve performance in six important areas
- Develop a plan to become more effective
The Effective Team Member Profile focuses on six key elements of effectiveness. The concepts underlying the Six Effectiveness Factors are derived from a compilation of research including Larson and LaFasto (1989); Parker (1996); Riechmann (1998); Redding (2000); and Rees (1997); among others.
What to Order
Order one facilitator guide per facilitator and one participant guide per participant. To provide team members with peer feedback, we recommend ordering three feedback forms per participant.
