Share Article

Team Collaboration Survey and Team Guidance System™ deliver quick and insightful analysis for anyone who wants to know the best ways to maximize team productivity.

Whether it’s a baseball team, a sales team, or a team of software developers, every team should have a clear and effective strategy for increasing productivity and ensuring ultimate team success. Kolbe Corp recently introduced two online solutions to enable users to easily understand how specific teams function most productively and how individual instinctive strengths can be leveraged to increase the chances of success.

Kolbe Corp’s Team Collaboration Survey enables anyone to develop the right team strategy in a matter of seconds and right in the palm of their hand.

This new solution was recently introduced at Kolbe Corp’s annual Conation Nation Symposium and is designed to identify how the team currently works and gives the leader guidance on how to lead that type of team – in sports, in business, or at home – and it’s free!

“Talking about work groups as teams is trendy, but we’re seeing too many leaders who don’t really understand how their teams function,” said David Kolbe, CEO of Kolbe Corp.

A recent article in The Harvard Business Review noted that data collected over the past two decades indicate that “the time spent by managers and employees in collaborative activities has ballooned by 50% or more.”

“Some types of work (like bookkeeping and phone sales) are best done by individuals working independently,” Kolbe added. “Other types of work (like product development and marketing) are best done when individual team members interact with one another. Leaders need to know what kind of teams they have if they want them to operate at high levels.”

The Team Collaboration Survey was designed to offer a straightforward and quick way for team leaders and members to get insight into their teams. It takes less than five minutes to go online and answer the survey’s seven questions. The results, which include a team analysis and practical leadership tips come immediately after answering the questions.

Kolbe Corp is offering the survey and results for free at can be accessed online at teamsurvey.kolbe.com.

Kolbe Corp’s Team Guidance System provides analysis and advice to help teams perform at their highest levels. It builds on the Team Collaboration Survey but goes much further. Supported by data regarding the instinctive, conative strengths of individual team members, the reports provide an analysis of team culture, highlight areas of potential team stress, and identify individuals who are “at-risk” due to stress factors. The reports also provide strategies for addressing specific challenges.
