What are Team-based Business Solutions?

Team-based solutions uncover root causes, solve problems and execute new strategies that lead to improved individual, team and company performance.

Team-based solutions include a new business methodology called Collaborative Team Structure® and Team Performance Analytics both generated by award-winning Teamability® tech.

TeamQuest combines 20 years of successful experience in recruitment, coaching and consulting with Teamability tech!

Group achievement depends on how people ‘team’ with each other. In today’s organizations, team players are high-quality nodes in a performance network. Business has a long history of focusing on people as a collection of ‘traits and talents’ each with a fixed price tag, this is a Transactional – not a Strategic – point of view.

ONLY by applying “Teaming Metrics” will you be able to sustainably solve problems and improve business performance. This happens by going from outdated subjective practices based on ‘individual performance’ to an updated, objective and data-driven model based on ‘team performance’. Business is a Team Sport!

Talent Assessment & Team Building – Updated

TeamQuest Advisors is leading the way from outdated and ineffective talent models of subjective ‘individual performance’ to an effective and updated talent model based on bias-free, data-driven ‘team performance’.

Current hiring and assessment practices are quickly becoming outdated because they center around measuring: experience, education, personality, and skills. These measures are not objective and don’t accurately predict anything.  The fine print tells us time and time again “Past performance is no guarantee of future results”.

With 20 years of experience in the business, TeamQuest offers you something new and different, proven to deliver results faster with better ROI.  Award-winning and bias-free Teamability® tech and Collaborative Team Structure® concepts integrated into our business solutions.  Our expertise, this tech and these concepts are what make the difference enabling us to identify and explain “how people perform when collaborating to solve problems, overcome obstacles and achieve common goals”.  This adds immeasurable value to what we do for our clients.

Teamability tech launched in 2009 it is a new assessment tech that began, over 25 years ago, as a unique study of teamwork by two behavioural scientists. Teamability was engineered to identify and organize the Dynamics of Team Interaction.

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).

TeamQuest Advisors Solves Organizational Puzzles

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

TeamQuest applies Teamability tech because it measures the way a person ‘connects’ to the needs of the team: not just to other people, but to the team itself as a living entity. It was created based on 30 years of R& D by behavioural scientist’s Dr.’s Presser and Gerber.

Teamability and its integrated leadership methods have impacted 350+ organizations on five continents, minimizing workplace stress, raising individual and team productivity, increasing employee engagement, and dramatically reducing turnover.

What You Can Accomplish
