How teamfluent works
getting started is easy
GOAL-DRIVEN and continuous
TeamFluent is a powerful tool for learning important collaboration and listening skills in real-life workplace situations. Ideally, it will be used in a goal-oriented way and on a continuous basis.
Decide what skills exactly are you going to develop first. Is there a specific challenge in your team’s way of working, or new ambitions which require a stronger skillset in some area? TeamFluent has a library of 13 research proven skills. Go ahead and select the most important ones based on your team’s current situation and goals. Ideally, you will choose 4-6 skills to begin with.
You can also choose which perspectives to take; on top of team evaluation, you can have team members to evaluate their personal contribution in the same context. TeamFluent automatically builds the survey based on your selections.
answering the survey
Everyone completes the survey during, or right after, teamworking. TeamFluent is designed to integrate into your existing work practices and you won’t need to set up a separate exercise, play games or go on a retreat. Instead, link TeamFluent to your team’s day-to-day tasks. TeamFluent can be used on any browser-enabled mobile device.
Once everyone has completed the survey, your team’s results are instantly available. Team members will receive their own results and team summaries, and the team leader will receive the results on a more detailed level. Results are anonymized, and nobody else than you can see your responses.
discussing the results
As the results are instantly available, you can have an open discussion in the team, reflecting your teamworking activity in the light of the results. What are the key messages delivered through your results? Which findings are most relevant? Which skills need to be supported by concrete development actions?
Agree on development actions; what will you do more, what will you do less as a team? What will you start doing, what will you stop doing as a team? Make a decision about timing of the next evaluation and task to be evaluated.
supporting the learning process
Sometimes external help is needed. Team development can be supported by various means: further discussions, guidance, facilitation, coaching and training, just to name a few. The team leader can reach out to different stakeholders like HR or internal/external facilitators for further support.
repeat the process until you get there!
Keep in mind that mastery requires training! TeamFluent helps tracking your progress, showing how your results are developing over time. Repeat the process 2-4 times with selected skills, until you have truly improved as a team. Then it’s time to select a more demanding set of skills and advance on your learning journey!
