Team Compass (TEAM-COMPASS™)


KDVI's Team Compass™ helps leadership teams better understand how aligned the team is and identify areas to improve to become more effective as a team. 

Based on academic research and experience with teams, the Team Compass™ evaluates perceptions of the team effectiveness in four areas: Direction & Structure, Cohesion, Functioning and Growth.

Specifically, the results can be used in a team alignment and development workshop to:

  • Highlight collective strengths and development areas / opportunities​
  • Identify gaps in alignment between team leader and rest of the team / or between subgroups​
  • Design targeted/themed workshops​
  • Benchmark for ongoing team development

Based on academic research and experience with teams, we have identified the following dimensions characteristic of effective teams:





The Team Compass™ dimensions were based on a literature review and consolidation of qualities of high performing teams. Some of the main sources of references include the following research and practitioner frameworks.
