Build a balanced, effective team

A strategic problem many businesses face is failing to build a balanced and effective team. Some companies plateau because they lack a good mix of personality types in order to execute the growth plans they set out to achieve.

Build a balanced, effective team


Are you running an optimised team for maximum effectiveness?


At The Alpha Group we make certain that you evaluate the personality types in your team and plan how to achieve a balanced, effective team.

So, how does this happen?

Easy, its a six step-process using the power of the peer-to-peer advisory board.


Firstly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you identify what is your strategic problem.

Companies need teams of talented, committed and empowered individuals in order to achieve fast, sustained business growth.

However, even if companies have these individuals, they can still fail because your teams just don’t get things done collectively. In these companies there is a lack of the team types for success i.e. your teams lack balance and effectiveness.

Secondly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you assess themselves at work.

you pick 10 from any of the characteristics in the list below that best describe you at work in your team.

I provide the creative spark.
I propose bold goals.
I produce lots of ideas.
I am imaginative.
I am an independent thinker.

I find new opportunities.
I make lots of contacts.
I thrive under pressure.
I communicate well.
I am persuasive.

I bring out the best in people
I am an excellent listener. I am good at clarifying goals
I am self-controlled
I am dominant (but not domineering).

I make things happen
I focus on results.
I look for patterns.
I am dynamic
I have drive

I am a good judge of options
I analyse problems
I spot the flaws in plans
I am a strategic thinker
I am prudent

I build on the work of others
I promote unity.
I lead with consent
I empathise with others
I am patient with colleagues.

I convert plans into tasks
I tackle tasks that need doing
I focus on the feasible.
I am systematic.
I am reliable.

I meet deadlines.
I see things through
I complete projects.
I reject poor work.
I have a sense of urgency.

Thirdly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you identify the team types in themselves and your team.

you identify the team types in themselves personally

This gives a primary team type, i.e. highest score and a secondary team type i.e. 2nd highest score.

Then they repeat this exercise to determine the team types of the members of your team.


Fourthly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you plan how to build your more balanced, effective team.

Looking at the primary team types and secondary team types you answer the following questions.

1 Which primary team types do you have few of?

What will you do to address this?

2 Which primary team types do you have many of?

What will you do to address this?

3 Who needs to use your secondary types more to create your more effective team?

4 Who needs to use your primary types less?


Lastly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you take massive action.

The profound impact on you and your company of building your balanced, effective team is that within 12 months you will significantly increase the effectiveness of your team which leads to increased profits and an enhanced valuation for your company.
