Personality traits testing provides many discrete - and useful - pieces of information about a person, and so can the legions of other tests based on the ‘self-inventory survey’ model. However, there is a completely new technology that identifies and organizes the different ways people seek to serve a team or a mission. And isn’t teaming quality (positive team chemistry) what you really need to know when selecting a co-founder, naming a partner, or creating a high-performance team? Teamabililty® is the product of 25 years of behavioral science and tech development. The core concepts are from physics and systems theory, not from psychology.
A person’s mode of teaming comes from their internal orientation to serving a specific area of team need: envisioning the mission; bringing people together; exploring possibilities; big-picture organization; and so on. This new field of management guidance is delivering extraordinary business value from startups and early-stage companies, to giant corporations. Example: a large company with 30% turnover on new hires made a single addition to its hiring process (using Teamability for screening and selection). From that point on, they had no new-hire turnover at all for 2 1/2 years, while adding 500+ people.
Additional qualitative measures elicited by the online teaming exercise include Coherence (which relates to steadiness and resilience in the face of challenge) and Teaming Characteristics, which describe likely behaviors in specific situational context.
