Team Effectiveness measures how productive and aligned employees feel to their team
I believe I am on the best team for me right now
Being on this team enables me to do my best work
As a team we consistently accomplish what we set out to achieve
Team Effectiveness takes into account multiple things - the individual's fit, their output, and the team's output. All of these are scoring in the 70's. Intriguingly, teams are slightly more likely to feel like they're on the right team, even if the team is not achieving its goals. Perhaps suggesting there are other intangible, social benefits that come from the collaboration within the team, over the tangible outputs.
Team Effectiveness is a great way to create a feedback culture in your organization by starting at the level where work actually gets done - in teams! Every question is crafted to be actionable by all individuals in the team, not only the manager or team lead. This creates accountability and the recognition that team culture is created by each individual, not a single person.
The questions that are most associated with overall team effectiveness generally have to do with development and team processes. It's important for employees to feel like their expertise is well utilized and they have opportunities to develop. It's also important for communication to be open and employees to approve of decision-making. And ultimately, believe that the team can accomplish their goals.
