TeamQuest provides customised business and talent solutions. We have experience partnering with a wide range of clients including the Country Manager of Microsoft Canada to mid and lower level hiring managers from large corporations to small business.

We are one of a handful of select firms to use Teamability® tech data to deliver strategic talent and business solutions that produce ROI with the use of ethical and professional candidate interview, assessment and advisory skills.

Teamability is an online exercise that observes how people interact on a team. It’s NOT the conventional measurement of psychological traits, which are just ‘slices’ of a person. This is a Game-Changer because we’re applying our recruitment know-how with teaming metrics that are highly relevant and bias-free.

The Fine Print
Past Performance is No Guarantee of Future Results.
Any Historical Achievements May Not Reflect Actual Future Performance.

So How Can I Predict Future Results?

In 2010, after 12 years of success in executive search, recruitment and coaching I became the first person in Canada to apply a new methodology called Collaborative Team Structure® and Team Performance Indicators both generated by a bias-free & award-winning Tech called Teamability®.

Teamability was launched in early 2009 by behavioural scientists after 25 years of research and 9 years of development, it reveals 3 dimensions about people:

1) One’s ability to connect with others and form collaborative relationships;

2) One’s ability to communicate with the intent to advance the team’s mission; and

3) The way a person seeks to make meaningful contributions to his or her team.

I have seen first-hand that this assessment technology works!

The following is a list of Performance Indicators (from actual reports) that are not visible until it’s usually too late:

  • Little or no real understanding of the importance of others helping to achieve one’s own goals
  • Convey to the team a harsh and negative attitude toward overcoming the challenges they face
  • Cannot focus effectively on attracting, retaining or developing the organization’s staff thus discouraging talents and failing to guide and develop successors to ensure the organization’s future
  • Little or no idea about what is going on with the others who are on the same teamLeads through demands and force
  • Unavailable to their reports, show no interest in them and are not ready to answer their questions.
  • Exclude any cooperation from others except insofar as they do as they are told
  • Not as enthusiastic about the organization’s results as if they were the results of their own businesses
  • Do not consider anyone’s interests in a fair manner without favoring some at the expense of others
  • View others as servants who are doing what is expected of them and no more
  • Pessimistic about the organization’s results and perpetually dissatisfied with them
  • Unable to establish either short or long-term goals for the organization in such a manner that others can act to achieve them
  • Try to impose own beliefs and moral principles on others whether this is welcome or not and do it in a way that is not helpful
  • Very much interested in giving others advice but it too often lacks real insight, so it becomes just a nuisance
  • Makes poor decisions that do not take into consideration the variables and risks inherent to the organization

All the vision and ambition in the world won’t bring about desired results without quickly and objectively identifying not only rock stars but people who may be pitfalls.

Today I am working toward changing the business landscape by using cutting edge valuation technology to advise Decision-Makers and Investors so that they can reduce their risk and mazimize ROI.

Using my experience & awarding winning bias-free Teamability tech I can help you by:

  • Providing strategic and objective advice for entering into partnerships, making investments, creating leadership teams, and selecting individuals to create new teams or join an existing team;
  • Using teaming metrics to identify why some are people are productive, and others bring problems and create obstacles;
  • Designing high-performance teams and recruiting the best team members for maximum impact, success and value; and
  • Recommending actions necessary to remedy organizational performance problems

Teamability® is The # 1 Predictor of Success 

Anyone can produce a roster of candidates that are comparable in education, experience, intelligence, presentation, and apparent ‘fit’.

A TeamQuest we answer the question of Teamability: How will a person perform when collaborating to solve problems, overcome obstacles and achieve common goals?

Teamability defined:

1) Ability to connect with others and form collaborative relationships;
2) Ability to communicate with the intent to advance the team’s mission; and
3) The way a person chooses to make meaningful contributions to his or her team.

Knowing people’s Teamability and understanding Teams Dynamics are the ‘keys’ when it comes to making important business decisions if you want to achieve ROI.

A New & Bias-Free Way to Know

Teamability tech is new, it’s NOT derived from personality factors data, from Engagement, EQ, or ‘Strengths’ surveys, or from any other familiar tools or methods. Teamability produces Team Performance Analytics the key to understanding the “who” and “why” to selecting the best person for the job, organization and building high-performance team.

Throughout its development, Teamability was examined for evidence of bias (age, race, gender, nationality, culture). No indication of bias was found. The University of Pennsylvania Journal of Labor and Employment Law singled out Teamability as bias‐free and in compliance with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Corporate Culture, Employee Engagement, Talent Assessment, Acquisition & Retention, Leadership/Coaching and Teamwork are all moving pieces in an organizational puzzle.
