Talent Tools For Teams

High performing Teams represent the ultimate blend of talent that allows for levels of achievement otherwise impossible. These Teams are differentiated from others based upon their ability to produce meaningful outcomes and are sought out by others who desire to join them in their work.

Ensuring you have a model of team effectiveness in hand that includes the essential Drivers and behavioral-based Practices to create high performing teams is vital. With the research-based Drivers and Practices of KSAT (Knowledge, Skills and Attributes of Teams), you will be armed with talent tools for teams to guide their composition and development and increase their capabilities.

What Practices are most important to create High Performing Teams in your organization? What are the Team Practices that will be needed to support the organization’s future state? These common questions can be answered with the tangible use of sort cards. The outcome? Rich discussions around teams, and solid plans that can be implemented throughout a talent system to build better Teams.

Team 360 Assessment

We have developed a comprehensive suite of assessment tools to facilitate Team development including our 360 Assessment to provide feedback that fuels higher levels of performance.

To boost Team performance we have two options for collecting data on team members and teams. Our standard KSAT Learner-Centric 360 Assessment allows Managers, Team Members, Customers and Stakeholders, HR Professionals, and Others to provide key feedback on team-related behaviors. Our KSAT Team-Centric 360 allows members of the team, Team Manager(s), Team Leader(s), Customers, HR Professionals, and Others to provide feedback about how a Team is performing.

While the KSAT 360 Assessment Reports are presented in the same manner, each are reframed from the perspective of what is seen about the Team.Our assessment allows the production of 5 reports:

  • The Placemat Highlight Report – The highest and lowest overall ratings of the selected Practices and Roles
  • The KSAT Summary Report – Summary of the highest and lowest ratings of the Roles and Practices
  • The KSAT Roles and Practices Detail Report – View all of the data with the exception of the written comments. Each Role and Practice selected for the assessment is presented with all of the averages across groups
  • The KSAT Written Comments Report – View of the written comments verbatim, without reference to source or position on the organization
  • The KSAT Combination Report – Combination of all of the four reports into one
