ABOUT THE MATRIX

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:

(RE) ACT

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.
