Preventing conflict using Team Discovery

In our 2021 CEO Benchmarking Report, we found that 69% of companies have restructured their teams since March 2020. This can have a huge impact on how work gets done, because every employee is unique and has their own preferred work style. Moving team members around, assigning new leaders, or even just rallying around a new goal can create tension within a team—especially if not handled properly. 

With so many personalities, it’s easy to account for conflict, but how do we go a step further than just anticipating it? You can use the Team Discovery tool within PI Design to prevent and resolve conflict. Use the tool to uncover your unique team identity and strategy type. By understanding how the team maps back to the strategy at hand, you can promote self-awareness and ensure the team works efficiently—so you can stay focused on strategy.
