Team Workshop: Personality & Effectiveness
Explores personality trends for the team relating to values, natural day-to-day behavioural skills, coping behaviour under pressure and risks of team derailment or blindspots following completion of the Hogan Assessments.
Great Team leaders typically get to know what's important to each team member and want to know what they can do to help build their capability further.
Helping the team gain collective awareness of each other's personality similarities and differences regarding motivation and skill, can help to ensure different perspectives are explored, valued and acted on whilst problem-solving or reaching decisions.
This 3½ hour practical team workshop helps teams take a look at trends surfacing from the Hogan Assessment tools. It aligns natural behaviours of the group to key skills needed at mid or senior level to identify team bench-strengths, skills-gap threats and actions to build team effectiveness.
This highly interactive facilitated session is delivered by an experienced Consultant with a Corporate background and who also delivers the Hogan Certification professional practitioners' programmes.
What does the Team Workshop: Personality & Effectiveness explore?
The impact of personality on group performance
- Reviews Values trends - what's very important to the whole team? Which values are very important to some but perhaps not so for the whole group? How does this affect individual perception, contribution and real buy-in to strategy, actions or group decisions?
- How do people generally deal with every-day pressure? Who pushes for action, how important are tangible objectives, success measures and timescales? Who wants to simply get it done with little "disruptive" interaction? Does anyone have an overwhelming communication style? How does this impact collective decision-making?
- How do we like to work? Do people want clarity, structure and process? Who likes detail and who gets bored by it? How do these things show up?
- When our values are not being met, what dark-side characteristics emerge?
does anyone become:
- overly careful or carefree and impatient?
- withdrawn and independent or too dramatic or dogmatic?
- bored and superficial or detailed and micromanaging?
- overbearing or accepting and too agreeable?
- apathetic or excessively worried?
- dismissive of others' ideas or overly accommodating?
- overly open, transparent and potentially oversharing, or too reticent.
- Some characteristics under pressure may be needed when things go awry. Who might help in such circumstances?
- What actions will help build effectiveness in your team?
This workshop requires Hogan Assessment results for the three tools for each team member. Individual feedback is not critical in order to run this team workshop and timings can be discussed with the facilitator to suit your requirements and development purpose.
Organisations use this workshop to maintain momentum in building self and team awareness to support development, engagement and productivity.
"We suggested the Hogan assessments for a team that was struggling to manage their different communication styles, which was impacting their overall effectiveness. The team members enjoyed receiving their individual reports and found it really helpful to explore how their results fitted within the team dynamics during the team insights workshop. Mike did an excellent job facilitating the session. He really brought the results to life and made it engaging. The way he presented things and discussed them, pointing out the most impactful areas to think about, created some light bulb moments for them and has delivered real value to their performance."

"The workshop "team insights masterclass" brought us as a group of experienced, international managers with different backgrounds, be it as site lead or functional lead, closer together and created a collaborative spirit. Our individual strengths and development opportunities were presented in a very clear way with the help of our facilitator Joey from APS, so that in sum we can better read and understand our different types of motivators and inner drivers. Equipped with this knowledge, it is now easier for us to support each other with increased efficiency in order to make not only our own organisation but also the higher-level organisation and thus the company as a whole even more successful."

"Suitability, in terms of the business owning a common set of motives and values has been at the core of how we have built our board and our senior leadership team. Melvyn’s understanding of our organisation, the challenges of how we all work together and add to our dynamic has been instrumental in our success. His calm considered and thoughtful style has helped us change some of our thinking, in how we communicate with each other and how to deliver messages to our people with considerably more confidence. The more we know about ourselves and how we interact with each other and the wider business, the better we have become. We will continue to engage with Melvyn and the APS team as we embark on the next phase of our growth."
People & Organisational Development Director.
"APS engaged to understand our challenges, tailoring the interactive session, really energising and focusing the group on what we could do individually and collectively to be more effective. They brought the data to life and made it meaningful, helping us increase trust. We are now talking about what’s next!"
