This is a MUST TAKE opportunity - If you are setting up your own teams this provides a terrific framework to help you understand the strengths of your potential team members placing them in the roles that will make your projects even more successful. I took this session and was very impressed with the usefulness of the material and the “payoff” it provided!

When work requires close collaboration, even the most extraordinary individual effort is no substitute for great teamwork. TGI Teamability™ is a completely new online behavioral assessment for hiring, workforce planning, coaching, and team-building. Project Managers need to be able to create strong teams. Many teams are strongly role based and a solid understanding of Teamability will assist in choosing and developing agile team members.
The Gabriel Institute has created technology that reveals how people will perform when working with others to solve problems, overcome obstacles, and achieve common goals. In short, it measures Teamability: the ability to connect with others to form a productive team.
Individual strengths can lead to a personal triumph, but a team is greater than the sum of its parts. TGI Teamability™ identifies behaviors that impact quality of team interaction and ‘fit’ to job responsibilities: the ‘who fits where’ and the ‘why’ of winning teams. With Teamability, you can reliably hire ‘the best of the best’, identify and resolve team performance problems, and build a strong, resilient human infrastructure
There are many ways to measure skills, talents, and traits, but teaming metrics are unique. It took 25 years of research and testing – including 9 years of software development – to produce TGI Teamability™ reports, which are the foundation of TGI’s Role-Based Approach to selecting, structuring, managing and motivating teams.
Organizations of every type and size experience the cost and pain of human performance failings, and are highly vulnerable to the ‘collateral damage’ that results from hiring the wrong people. TGI Teamability™ makes it possible to reliably select high quality team players, and to match their job responsibilities to the way they envision themselves serving their team (their ‘Role’).
TGI Teamability was designed from its very beginnings to measure and predict the quality of a person’s team interaction.
TGI Teamability can greatly reduce the costs and risks associated with errors in hiring and promoting, while delivering significant business value by matching people to the functional mission of their team. It is also highly effective in analyzing and solving team performance problems.
This certification course is a comprehensive overview of Teamability and CHI methods. It prepares learners to provide basic support to users of TGI Teamability™, and to apply for an optional Certification. Certification requires passing a written examination and meeting TGI’s modest standards for ongoing participation.
Course content includes:
- Participant’s own Teamability Report at no additional cost
- Four contact hours of training, including all materials
- Readings to be completed during course attendance
- Brief written certification examination to measure comprehension of course materials and applications (optional to complete)
