The Shadowmatch team building workshop provided us valuable information about our teams, our team members, their tendencies and their behaviors.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) July 21, 2014
Shadowmatch USA and DallasHR, an organization that provides resources and networking opportunities for professionals in the field of human resources, recently partnered in an effort to illustrate and analyze the unique culture of the DallasHR committees through behavioral benchmarking and a team building workshop. The intent of the collaboration was to look at the behaviors of DallasHR team members and gain benchmarks from the high performing groups so that they would then have a format for evaluating team performance.
As a professional association, DallasHR leadership is driven by a board of trustees, two boards of directors and 13 sub-committees comprised of committed volunteers from within its membership. Prior to attending, team members from these groups completed an online behavioral assessment which resulted in the following:
- A behavioral profile for each individual
- A behavioral benchmark for each team
- Results for each individual against the team benchmark
After the assessments were analyzed, the results revealed specific behaviors and habits underlying team interactions and gave insights for improving board and committee productivity and alignment, which were already at high yielding levels.
“The Shadowmatch team building workshop provided us valuable information about our teams, our team members, their tendencies and their behaviors. We can now use the benchmark information we discovered to help us work better and more efficiently within our groups and within the culture of DallasHR,” said Charlotte Leo, 2014 DallasHR president. “As an organization, we strive to continuously evolve so that we remain a leading support network for our members and an expert resource within the business community.”
“Behavioral team building is an essential part of the solution that we offer,” says Adrian Wood, co-founder Shadowmatch USA. “It strongly illustrates a direct correlation between an organization’s success and the behaviors and habits of its team members.”
