Major Assessment Tools

The State of the Team:CCM’s original instrument for analyzing the quality of your team.
ccm-logoCCM has developed its own, highly effective tools for measuring  the quality of a team. The tools are used, both before and after our workshops, to allow the members to come to grips with their situation, and start to take action – with a bit of help from us — accordingly. One of these is called “The State of the Team.”

Photo-gallery-9-2Here is a sample of questions (24 in all) asked of each member, to  measure (confidentially) what he/she feels about the quality of the team.

  • How good is the morale of your team?
  • To what extent are the team’s goals and targets?
  • How realistic or achievable are these targets?
  • How clear is your own role in the team? How clear are the others’ roles clear to you?
  • How effective is teamwork and cooperation?
  • How comfortable do you feel to approach and speak to your boss?
  • How would you rate the level of cross-cultural understanding within your team?
“Knowing that people have different leadership styles, and how I should adapt myself when l talk to people who have different leadership style, will help me greatly.”

With our help, the members’ own measurements of their team go into a vivid bar chart, which portrays quite clearly how the team feels, as a whole, they are doing. Then, they are brought together – for their own team-building project – to study and tackle their challenges. Together, they move to improve the “state of their team.

“Your coaching on leadership models that work — and more importantly
those that don’t work, specifically for East-West Teams — was very valuable.”

Kraybill “Style Matters” Conflict Tool
Kraybill “Style Matters” Conflict Tool is a research-validated training and consulting tool that scores users on five common responses to conflict. A unique feature is its cultural flexibility, achieved through differing instructions for users from “individualistic” and “collectivist” cultures and discussion exercises. Teams can take the assessment tool as individuals, and then discuss the results as a group. Managers and project leaders learn how to bring the best out of each team member.
