30 years of validated research have created a full suite of Profiling tools known as Margerison-McCann Team Management Systems (TMS).
The Team Management Wheel lies at the heart of this integrated approach designed to help maximise personal potential, build great teams and create energy for success. It provides a visual starting point for a discussion about what makes high energy teams.
The TMS approach makes individual development the critical first step to effective team development. And it places both in the context of business results. Each of the TMS Profiles offers a unique view on a person or situation at work. Each has its own visual model and simple language to bring it to life.
The Profiles are rich in multi-layered data enabling powerful, transformational discussion about the potential and value of the individual, how to link people with tasks and with each other - and how to build, manage and lead teams. Most of all, they help to uncover the energies that influence success and build long term company value.
All our tools are rigorously researched, presented to high quality standards and have been independently reviewed by the British Psychological Society. They are supported by a dedicated team of professionals at TMS Development International (TMSDI).
Team Management Wheel
The Opportunity Orientation Profile (QO2®) is a unique tool, linked with the TMS models and concepts, that measures the balance of energy that individuals put into seeing opportunities and obstacles at work. Developed by Dr Dick McCann as an extension of his research into work preferences, the Profile complements the four scales of the Team Management Profile to offer a “fifth dimension” of understanding about what drives our individual and team energies.
The Profile offers valuable feedback for personal coaching session and explores critical issues around the management of unknowns for the whole team.
Each individual completes a 64-item Questionnaire online which is analysed by our expert software to produce a customised personal report describing work value patterns in relation to eight core types:
For teamwork to be effective, we need to understand individual working values as these influence motivation and the way people work. The Window on Work Values Profile offers important insights into how things actually get done in your organisation, helping you gain better understanding of how people operate together and how well individuals fit with the culture of the workplace.
A rich multi-rater instrument giving feedback to the whole team from its own members and those it works with. The Team Performance Profile provides a detailed mini-audit of how everyone thinks the team is doing in relation to a powerful, fully researched model of team effectiveness, linked to the models and concepts within the Team Management Profile. The Profile has been used successfully with team coaching, problem solving, change management and project management. It is an ideal consultancy tool that can be used before or after individual team members receive their personal Profiles.
Balanced teams that focus on the complete cycle of work, as shown in the Types of Work Model, are more likely to succeed. They also need greater understanding about how to maximise the value of different approaches. Each personal Team Management Profile aims to enhance self awareness, mutual understanding and respect for the differences that build team resilience.
