Through our research and collective experience, we’ve identified 9 characteristics of thriving teams that fall along two intersecting axes. The 3 columns represent underlying instincts that drive behavior, while the 3 rows correspond to core intents of a decision or action:
Feel: Driven by sensory and emotional responses to certain options or ideas.
Think: Driven by logical, rational activity such as planning and careful analysis.
Re(Act): Driven by the need to be in motion and see measurable progress.
Purpose: Why are we doing this work? Seeking connection to the ultimate meaning of the work.
Performance: What are we doing? Defining the goals, objectives, and metrics for success.
Process: How are we doing it? Identifying the pathway and resources for accomplishing goals.
Every team is comprised of individuals who resonate with and prioritize the 9 characteristics differently. Celebrating this diversity can help teams respond to and prepare for evolving trends. Much like the scientific instrument, our "Barometer Readings" are point-in-time measurements. We welcome you to use the tool to continuously assess your areas of greatest strengths, most needed improvements, and everything in between.
