Team Dimensions 2.0 - Online Assessment
Discover your preferred team role.
The Team Dimensions profile determines a person’s role preference when working on a team. The basic roles are Creator, Advancer, Executer, Refiner, or Flexor. The goal of this assessment is to align people with work they enjoy and want to actually perform.
In a recent Gallup survey, an astonishing 85% of people said they hate their job. The Team Dimensions profile is unique because it identifies what types of work a person excels at. It then provides a process for a team to use their strengths when completing tasks. We find that when people work on tasks they enjoy, they are more engaged in their jobs.
How does the model work?
Discover the Right Roles for the Right People
This profile identifies four key roles in team performance:
Creator: Generates original concepts, goes beyond the obvious, and sees the big picture. Hands off tasks to an Advancer.
Advancer: Recognizes new opportunities, develops ways to promote ideas, and moves toward implementation. Hands off tasks to a Refiner.
Refiner: Challenges and analyzes ideas to detect potential problems and may hand plans back to an Advancer or Creator before handing off tasks to an Executor.
Executor: Lays the groundwork for implementation, manages the details, and moves the process to completion.
This profile uses the “Z Process” to map the flow of assigning roles, completing tasks, and handing off tasks to other team members. Using the five roles in the “Z Process” gets new teams moving forward quickly and gets current teams unstuck.
Using Team Dimensions with other Behavioral Assessments
In Ray Dalio’s New York Times bestselling book, Principles, Dalio outlined how his company used the Team Dimensions profile along with other psychometric assessments.
Dalio’s company, Bridgewater Associates, used the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) to first understand who a person to help individuals communicate more effectively. Dalio understood that individuals are hard wired in how we behave. These differences can cause issues if we don’t recognize that a person’s behavior plays a large part in how they approach their work or see the world.
While Dalio’s organization used MBTI, we want to encourage Team Dimensions 2.0 users to consider using the Everything DiSC Workplace profile to help their teams understand behavioral differences between each other. Because both Everything DiSC and Team Dimensions or published by Wiley, users are able to save money on these tools by opening an EPIC account.
