Team Management | Team Building

From lone rangers to teams

For a team to work, its members must have the skills required to execute the task at hand. But by themselves, these things are not enough. Team members must also cooperate in such a way that they deliver greater performance through shared effort rather than if they were working by themselves. This requires clearly defined roles and tasks. Team members also need to understand and maintain mutually respectful treatment of each other. This has to be taken into consideration when putting together teams.

To achieve this goal, MTI uses a wide variety of tools when working for companies in order to analyze the personality of the employee and/or illustrate their strengths, attitudes and values as well as behavioral tendencies (including DiSC®, MBTI, HBDI®). These analyses serve as helpful instruments for putting together new teams. We also use the analytical tools during team training sessions to

  • trigger a process of self-reflection among employees,

  • facilitate communication between the team members with regard to individuals’ unique strengths, thus fostering mutual understanding and

  • identify the causes for conflicts on the personal level within teams.



  • differences between a goup and a high-performance team

  • roles and responsibilities within a team

  • rules for cooperation and communication within a team

  • leadership in team structures

  • dealing with conflicts

To promote shared (first) experiences among the members of the (newly formed) team, we often conduct our team training sessions outdoors as well. In these sessions, we use the individual and collective experience in the great outdoors as a tool to help participants reflect on their own behavior in their everyday work and draw conclusions based on this for future behavior.
