Is Your Team All Wearing the Same Jersey?

When you mention teams what comes to mind for most people is sports teams.  You think of the Stanley Cup or the World Cup.  We sometimes forget Management Teams, Project Teams, and Boards, but they share some similarities.

Sports teams all have the same goal in their vision but they achieve it by building on the strengths of the players.  In organizations or business you need to utilize the strengths of the participants in order to reach the right decisions.

If a sports team has all defensemen, they will have difficulty scoring.  Likewise in organizations or business if everyone was the same in the way they processed information and communicated, you likely would have difficulty reaching a decision.

On a Board or Strategic Management Team, the personality types of the team members are the strengths, as they define how the team will process the information to reach decisions.  Knowledge of personality type can ensure that all input has been considered.

In sports or management, the goal is more attainable if we make use of the individual team member’s strengths.  For more information on how knowledge of Personality type can assist your organization contact us at
