Team Emotional and Social Intelligence Survey (TESI)

Assess team emotional and social effectiveness

Teams are the source of most of the productivity, creativity and reliability in organizations. Work and play are both successful –or not –because of the quality of teams performing the mission at hand. The TESI® is used to identify areas that need further exploration, intervention and development for teams. Research continues to demonstrate that emotional and social intelligence are key determinants of team success, which then leads to organisational success.

The TESI® creates the opportunity for a team 360 in which each member of the team rates the team's skills from his or her perspective. They answer questions such as "Our team continues to be hopeful when challenged.” and “Our team members steer clear of getting even." Reports are then available on the entire team, and on subgroups, or smaller groups within the team, those sub-groups might be based on gender or age groupings or on status such as supervisors compared to managers. This allows all team members and the leaders to understand the levels of identification with the team, satisfaction, engagement, and skills in areas such as communications and conflict resolution.

The TESI® Report provides a display with numerous graphs and descriptions of the current levels of emotional and social functioning in the team from the perspectives of the team members who completed the TESI® Survey. The report offers unique insights and suggests ways for understanding current strengths and weakness of the team and to strategically choose where to enhance team skills. Through thiscombination of awareness and action the team is poised to achieve greater productivity and each team member has the opportunity to improve his or her own teamwork and personal well-being.
