How TeamSight Works
TEAMSIGHT MEASURES BEHAVIOR IN FOUR HIGHLY CONSISTENT ACTIVITIES THAT ARE INTEGRAL TO INDIVIDUAL AND TEAM PERFORMANCE:
How you process and express ideas
How you process and engage with emotion - yours and others
How you exert your force of will on objectives
How you structure and complete work
Your Individual Profile
Once you have completed the online TeamSight assessment, we analyze your response to identify the default behaviors that motivate your actions. There are no right answers, best results, leader lines, or labels. Instead of placing limits on what you can accomplish, TeamSight gives you insights into how to adjust your behavior and leadership style to increase performance and work effectively with team members who have different styles than yours, and manage your strengths so they don't overpower others.
Your Team Profile
TeamSight helps teams accelerate performance by recognizing their differences as complementary, not competing. This understanding is key to building trust through clear communications, leveraging the strengths of each team member, and alignment around shared objectives. TeamSight identifies both team strengths and blindspots to help teams avoid pitfalls and operate more effectively. Leaders can also apply TeamSight insights to specific issues the team is facing.
"At Love's we have utilized the TeamSight approach in our leadership development training and performance conversations. We believe it is helping us achieve higher individual and team performance outcomes throughout the organization."

"I specialize in helping boards and C-Suite executives to better understand the strengths and development opportunities for their top talent. The ability to influence effectively is one of the most important executive skills, and TeamSight provides deep insight on how people influence individuals and their organizations and how they can grow as leaders. There is nothing else available that can compare with it."

"While intuitively we know every team member is unique and different, TeamSight allows us to understand the differences clearly and shows us how to leverage them as the true strength of our team."
- Rick Jensen, Chief People and Places Officer, Headspace
"Competitive advantage is largely driven by the work quality, throughput and 'time to yield' of working group or individual. TeamSight is a valuable tool that addresses all three dimensions."
- Cameron Hedrick, Chief Learning Officer, Citi
The science behind TeamSight
TeamSight -formerly known as Style of Influence- was developed as a behavioral assessment focused on team performance. In the early 80's, Douglas Wilson, PhD., was teaching Organizational Behavior at the USC Graduate School of Business and working with Toyota Motor Company's heads of HR and Strategic Development for North America to improve their leadership practices. Gene Getz, PhD., a former professor of Dr. Wilson's, had built a successful career implementing behavioral principles in both educational and religious institutions. They both championed the critical importance of productive team interactions that resulted in higher performance, and began to work together on a tool to assist teams in these areas.
At that time, most tools were based on identifying personal characteristics and were more descriptive by design. These were helpful, but Wilson and Getz believed a predictive tool for team interactions could prove even more useful. Their goal was to develop an assessment with exceptional internal consistency - one that would help individuals and teams perform at a higher level by recognizing their default behaviors and gaining awareness of how those behaviors influence themselves and others.
The empirical research behind TeamSight identified four highly consistent activities that impact team performance. Based on this research, the TeamSight assessment analyzes 84 items that identify how people naturally behave within the four areas of team performance, and presents actionable, objective feedback that isn't subject to interpretation.
The results demonstrate an excellent internal consistency of reliability with a high degree of construct validity. The results from Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA), Multi-Trait Multi-Method (MTMM) Matrix, and Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA), all strongly support the conclusion that TeamSight demonstrates excellent validity.
