Great Teams Health Radar

What is the Great Teams Health Radar?

Cultivating a great team is the goal of any true servant leader. The Great Teams Health radar is inspired by Google’s Project Aristotle which sought to research what made effective teams tick. The focus is on team dynamics, rather than the people themselves. In other words, who is on the team is less of a factor than how the team members interact, structure their work and view their contributions.

Having a great team needs key elements in order for the team to perform at their best. This health check looks at five key areas that can help move your team from Good to Great!

What can make a good team become a great team?

Inspired by Google Great Teams research, the following health dimensions are key characteristics of a successful team. By running a health check regularly, you can help your team level up. Team members can rate each dimension giving you a sense of where they are excelling, or where they may need support and leadership.
