Get Data on Teams

Strong individual performers are good. But strong teams are even better. You need to have a diverse set of strengths among your teams. And you need a baseline skill set for how your teams interact.

With DDI’s assessment tools, you can get a team view of strengths and gaps. As a result, you can determine team development priorities as well as create individual development plans.

Build Strong Executive Teams

No team dynamic is more important than your team at the top. Your C-suite and executive teams need to be highly aligned and work well together for better team management. Also, they need to be deeply self-aware and honest about their own strengths and challenges, as well as those of the team.

DDI can help you understand your entire executive team and build strong, trusting working relationships for maximum success at the top. Effective teams are particularly important as you look at succession management, especially a new CEO.
