Quiz – How Great IS your Team?

We all aspire to lead teams that perform well and achieve success with a minimum of fuss! But it’s often hard to take a step back and objectively assess what they do well and what they must improve to become truly ‘high performing’.

Whether you are creating a new team or have inherited a team that’s been together a while, it’s useful to know where they are today.

Assessing the quality and effectiveness of your team will help you identify their potential and strengths and pinpoint areas for improvement. Your answers to this quiz will guide your team’s ongoing development

  1. What is your team’s purpose?
  2. How many people are in your team?
  3. How would you describe your team?
  4. What are your team’s Top 3 strengths?
  5. What are your team’s biggest current challenges?

    High Performing Team Characteristics

  • Take a note of how many times you’ve selected Poor, Average, Consistent or Excellent.



    You’ve got some work to do! It’s likely your team is struggling to fulfill its purpose. They may:

    • Have been together too long and the reason for the team’s existence may no longer be clear or necessary
    • Be experiencing a high turnover of team members.
    • Be stuck in the ‘storming’ phase of team development
    • Dysfunctional due to circumstances
    • Not know how to improve

    Whatever the reason, they are suffering and you need to take action now.


    Your team is ‘going through the motions’ and doing just enough to justify their existence. They may be:

    • Inexperienced or still ‘forming’
    • Missing deadlines here and there
    • Working independently, unaware of the benefits of collaborating
    • Unaware or unsure of what they are accountable for
    • Experiencing conflict that is distracting them from their purpose
    • Missing essential skill sets and styles

    However, there’s a lot you can do to improve their effectiveness and ensure they are recognised as high performing.
    Let’s get your team back on track!
