How Team Effectiveness with Insight Discovery works

We would agree your specific needs so that we can tailor the programme accordingly.

We would invite each member of your team to complete an Insights Discovery profile online. This produces a Discovery profile for each individual team member.

The Insights Discovery® Personality Profile is a highly acclaimed development tool which gives individuals an engaging, reinforcing and transformational insight into themselves and others.

Celebrating the uniqueness of each person, the profile illustrates how recognising and valuing difference can empower individuals, teams and entire organisations.

Each profile includes the Foundation and Management Chapters which enables individuals to understand their style and approach, key strengths and weaknesses, value to the team, communication style, possible blind spots, opposite type management style and suggestions for development.

What do we hope to achieve with the MAX Team Effectiveness training programme?

The aim of the programme

To enable individuals to utilise the Insights Discovery concept and their individual Discovery profiles, to gain a unique insight into who they are and who their team members are, which enables the group to explore how by being adaptable, relationships and teamwork can be optimised and focused on achieving the team’s goal.

The objectives of the MAX Team Effectiveness programme

As previously mentioned, these can be tailored to meet specific needs, but the core objectives are for participants to;

  • Understand the power of perception and how this affects team dynamics
