Team Navigator®

Are you looking for rapid and in-depth insight into the potential of a team, so that you can adjust your actions effectively and efficiently?

The Team Navigator® is a new and advanced instrument, based on scientific insights into the workings of interpersonal interaction. The Team Navigator®  identifies and shows how interaction works at the unconscious level. It also enables more control of the team process and the way in which results can be achieved at a level  deeper than that of any other existing method.

For whom?

  • Project teams in which effective cooperation is essential to the result
  • Teams dealing with a high risk task  (complexity, time pressure, large degree of importance) or potential teamwork problems.
  • Management teams and other “permanent” teams who wish to improve their level of cooperation and their results.
  • Sport teams, participating at top level or aiming to do so.
  • Teams who want to increase their level of influence and who want to be more precise in their interaction with others.
  • Team leaders who want to be able to manage teamwork more effectively.

Why?

  • A new team that must be ready to work together quickly in order to achieve results
  • A team facing a special challenge
  • Improvement required in the level of cooperation and/or the achieving of results
  • Maximising the potential and cooperation of the team

No questionnaires

With the Team Navigator®, it becomes clear just which (implicit) opportunities and risks are involved for the team, both internally and externally. For the individuals in the team, this provides insight into interactive situations outside of the team as well. The analysis is based on the non-verbal communication of the team members; there is no need for filling in questionnaires, it is impossible to manipulate the information.

Method

We start with an intake that provides us with a picture of the context within which the team has to operate, the results it wishes to achieve and the team members’ backgrounds.

The team is given a presentation with video examples  of the way in which non-verbal strategy analysis works. This is followed by the recording on video of (separate) short individual intake sessions. A team analysis is then made based on this material. This includes the mapping out of the various strategy types and the interaction patterns within the team. All of this is then examined with regard to the context in which the team is operating and the results it wishes to achieve. At a team meeting, the results of the analysis are presented and explained. The team is also given advice on improving the level of cooperation and maximising their potential. Each team member receives individual advice on the way in which he or she can function to the best of their ability within the team.

Time required (rough estimate, depends on size of team):

  • intake: +/- 90 mins
  • presentation of analysis method: 2 hours
  • individual intakes: 5 mins
  • presentation and discussion of analysis results and advice: 2 to 3 hours
