There are two fundamental ways that a team can be transformed by using The Six Types of Working Genius. First, individual team members can increase their productivity and morale by maximising the time they spend in their areas of genius and minimising the time they spend in their areas of frustration. Second, a team can significantly increase the likelihood of success by ensuring that they have filled all six of the geniuses required to get something done. Thankfully, these approaches are best accomplished together. The question is, “how?” Here are four practical steps to make it happen.
Four simple steps:
Step 1: Have every team member complete the assessment and review their individual reports.
Step 2: Get together and have every team member reveal his/her areas of genius, competency and frustration.
Step 3: Map out the team’s geniuses, review and discuss the collective results and their implications.
Step 4: Identify any adjustments that can be made to fill areas of genius that are lacking, and perhaps to reorganise roles and responsibilities to allow people to better utilise their areas of genius.
Using Working Genius, a team can identify, discuss and address individual and collective problems in only a few hours.
