Watch a video on Winning Team:

All successful teams are made up of a combination of people who individually contribute to the success of that group through their own unique talent. WinningTeam identifies and assesses each person within a team, measuring his performance and productivity separately and in relation to the team.

A WinningTeam Report provides the team leader with an understanding of what the specific talent of the team is as well as where potential gaps exist within the team environment. The report’s results provide valuable information on the form and type of interaction that is likely to take place between team members and what effective forms of communication should be implemented. With team profiling, the report details how a group of individual profiling results can be integrated to maximize team dynamics. It suggests what is needed to help these individuals perform together as a cohesive team unit.

The WinningTeam process combines the benefits of three individual profiling instruments that measure three separate areas of human behavior: thinking (cognitive development), feeling (emotional development), and doing (actions and movement known as kinesthetics).

The three profiling instruments used as part of Winning Team are:

By triangulating the results of these instruments and using an in-depth interpretation process, The Focus Group studies the meaning of each instrument from a deductive, evidentiary approach.  Individual findings are then combined and interpreted in the context of a team’s performance environment.  The report findings, analysis and recommendations that come from this report will ultimately serve to increase team productivity.

Once the triangulation of all three instruments of WinningTeam is completed, a far more accurate profile of each individual is drawn and then taken one step further to the context of a team.  A WinningTeam Report is then produced by The Focus Group through detailed analysis.  The report provides an understanding of what the performance potential of a team is and explains the best environment for that group to perform in.  It also overviews potential threats of a poorly matched environment.  The report’s results provide valuable information on the form and type of interaction that is likely to take place with this particular group, and what effective forms of communication should be implemented.

The Winning Team Report is emailed back to each individual and team leader.  A meeting is then scheduled to review the results with the team and/ or leader, either face to face or by phone. The detailed report includes the following:


1.  Results of each of the three linear instruments (Kolb’s Learning Style Inventory, Gallup’s StrengthsFinder and Axiom Disc)

This portion of the report explains the results of each test as a separate instrument, without using the others as points of reference.


2.  Individual SCOT Analysis

This section of the report provides the (potential or existing) employee with an integrated interpretation of the three instrument results.  It outlines individual strengths and opportunities, highlights areas in need of development, and identifies those things that may be causing interference in the performance environment.


3.  5 Steps to Winning

In this section of the report, a role-related interpretation of the three profiles is offered, incorporating five headings that are fundamental to a Winning environment:

  • Building a Winning Team - Performance within a Team Environment
  • Designing a Winning Profile™ - Effectiveness in their Current Role
  • Creating a Winning Mindset - Capacity for Learning
  • Developing a Winning Environment - Change Thinking
  • Engineering Winning from Setbacks - Thinking Correctly under Pressure

Note:  An organization has the customizable option to develop its own top 5 Steps to Winning


4.  Student/Warrior/Champion Classification

Successful teams utilize people who individually contribute to the success of that group through their own unique talents. The structure of that team is as equally important as the quality of the individuals within it. The Focus Group’s research has concluded that within any team there are three significant talent sets defined as Student, Warrior, and Champion. Each hugely impacts the overall success of the group.  The report identifies which of these classifications each individual falls into as part of the team.


Be sure to ask about Winning Comparison, which may be purchased to supplement your Winning Team purchase

After completing Winning Team, The Focus Group also offers Winning Comparison where an additional “re-profiling” is conducted after approximately four to six months. Results are then compared and the shift of performance potential that has taken place over that period of time is measured and analyzed. While the three areas of an employee’s behavior cannot be changed, their order of predominance can be shifted to better match and serve his role within the team, thus increasing overall team performance and productivity.

Winning Profile offers financial incentives to those who purchase Winning Comparison with any of the other Winning Profile products.
