Profiting Teams

Profiting Teams

The individual contribution to team dynamics is one of the most important aspects within an organisational environment. Provided these are properly coordinated, this leads to great success. However, often teams struggle to perform due to a myriad of factors. As a senior leader or team member, what can you do to create an environment of high-performing and profitable teams?
Based on our work with more than 2,500 organisations and over 20 years of experience, we have explored the idea of high-performing teams versus teams that fail. Our research focused on people’s individual contribution and how it affects team lineups and overall performance. This led to the birth of a strategic contribution assessment that provides insight into:

Natural contributions

Where one's natural contribution lies is proportional to strategic execution and their areas of achievement.

Tackle problems

How team members tackle complex problems is indicative of their role within the team.

Dominant coalitions

These coalitions affect groupthink, team performance, and overall team behaviour.

Profiting teams

Through better understanding and alignment within your organisation, profitable teams can emerge and take shape.

Profiting Teams

Teams that start working together based on this approach will see immediate results because the insights are immediately applicable in the workplace. The profitable teams approach helps you, senior leaders and teams allocate the people needed to enable the required changes in specific areas of the business. In concrete terms, it helps to draw up a clear talent succession plan. You will also gain insight into the development areas of your team, team dynamics and individual (leadership) development. The application of this framework and associated tools help your people to perform better in their work and to collaborate better with colleagues.


Our vision

Human Insight has developed best practices and practical tools to help organisations, leaders and employees work with the insights that the profitable teams approach has to offer.

Based on our success with other organisations and best practices, we have found that our approach helps to uncover the team-level behavioural aspects that need to be addressed to be successful in strategy execution and overall team performance, through:

  • Self-awareness;
  • Understanding their role within the team;
  • Understanding their role in the team in relation to their unique responsibilities and result areas;
  • Creating an environment for peer-to-peer feedback and rich learning.
