TeamWork GPS Team Readiness Checklist

There are two constants in business. Change is one; another is that teams need certain conditions in order to engage one another and move quickly and effectively to achieve shared goals.

Like the GPS in a car or phone, the TeamWork GPS provides leaders and teams with information about where you are so you can get where you want to go. The TeamWork GPS allows leaders and teams to quickly assess the starting conditions for a next project, quarter, or year.

Features of the TeamWork GPS Survey include

  • Quick, Concise, Easy to use and interpret
  • 18 items correlating to tested and proven conditions for team success
  • Online administration and data collection
  • Raters may include Team Leader and members of 1 or 2 teams to determine alignment between levels
  • Detailed report, including Survey Overview, Explanation of Scoring Rules, All Raters Analysis, Team Breakdown Analysis, By Item Graphical Rating, Question Ranking, Comments
  • Debrief Session with a Giuliano Associates Coach
  • Next Step Recommendations

To go fast and win you need shared clarity, resources and routines and the competence to perform, lead and work together as a team. The TeamWork GPS is an 18-item online assessment tool that provides a snapshot of a team’s current state in three categories that comprise the conditions required for team success: Guiding Stars (Shared Clarity), Provisions (Resources and Routines), and Skill and Will (Aptitude and Attitude).

Guiding Stars (Shared Clarity)—Teams need a clear direction (shared clarity of vision, mission, strategy, execution plan, roles, success measures, and accountabilities).

Provisions (Resources and Routines)—Teams need a positive environment and culture, efficient structure, simple processes and tools, and adequate resources.

Skill and Will (Aptitude and Attitude)—Teams need individual and collective aptitude (knowledge, and functional, leadership, and social competence) and the attitude (emotional intelligence and will).

Using TeamWork GPS

TeamWork GPS requires approximately 15 minutes of a respondent’s time to complete.

You may choose to survey one team, e.g. Leadership Team, or two teams, e.g. Extended Leadership Team (Leadership Team plus direct reports)

  • A true leader
    April 7, 2023 by Ajit Singhee from India

    Best way to do a thing is to do it and a true leader does it. He takes bull by the horn but prefers operating incognito. He is a team man delegates authority but not before instilling his team with requisite zest. He is focused and single minded, but never averse to change course when better opportunities knock. To him positivity, like peace, is indivisible. Divide it and it multiplies, ever more infectious in the right sense. His universal advice to the young- practice practice and more practice . There is no shortcut to success. No one has all the answers. Let us seek it together as a team , to ‘fake it till you make it’ is no good idea . It is only a skin deep and bound to be found out

  • The real work of leadership
    February 9, 2023 by KavitaRose from United States

    I love everything about this podcast. The interviews are succinct and power packed with wisdom of guests really doing the work of leadership. The different perspectives and honesty of each guest is refreshing. AND with each episode I add something to my reading list and a new insight / reflection for my own growth.
