Short and Sweet?
Where did you land on the assessment spectrum—closer to the short and sweet activity? You might have less time or resources to spend on this activity, or obstacles to overcome before beginning your journey. Not to worry, this method is useful for boosting morale and improving relationships among team members without expending much effort! Learn how to make the most out of your session with this blog that breaks down the benefits and steps of the short and sweet method.
If you are closer to the “Deep Dive” end of the spectrum, you have the resources to dig into an in-depth team building activity. However, just because you have the resources doesn’t mean you should always take the deeper dive. If your team is experiencing positive morale and you want to keep the mood light, you may benefit from choosing the short and sweet method. You can discover more with our blog that road-maps the entire process.
Remember, your score is not the only factor to consider when deciding what assessment to use for your team building session. While it’s important to look at your teams' capabilities, keep the goal of your session in mind to ensure you spend your resources most effectively.
No matter which route choose for your team, personality assessments are a great way to encourage team productivity under any condition.
