Creating team self-awareness

When thinking about high-performing teams, it’s important to first consider how “I,” as an individual, work. Everyone on the team, including team leaders, must have self-awareness of their own behavioral preferences and abilities before they can understand others. Using tools such as the PI Behavioral Assessment™ will allow you to not only understand yourself, but also allow your team to get more insight into what motivates and drives others on the team.

For example, you might have an employee that seems reserved or quiet in meetings and who doesn’t often speak up. Understanding this may be due to how they’re wired to work can help others better support this teammate, possibly by giving them advanced notice of when they’ll be expected to share. Or you might realize that, while some of your team members like to meet and talk things out, others prefer to digest information in advance before sharing input.

Considering me + others​

What’s my natural behavioral style and preferences?

Me + 1 (one-on-one relationships):
How do I interact with individual team members?

Me + we (team dynamics):
How well do we work as a cohesive group? How do we communicate? How do we make decisions?
