Science and simplicity

Science and simplicity

The Margerison-McCann approach to high performance stems from ongoing research into how people work together in teams.

Balanced teams that focus on the complete cycle of work, as shown in the Types of Work Model, are more likely to succeed. They also need greater understanding about how to maximise the value of different approaches. Each personal Team Management Profile aims to enhance self awareness, mutual understanding and respect for the differences that build team resilience.

Profiles are compiled from responses to our validated Questionnaire and give comparisons with an extensive norm database. A rigorous scientific approach is combined with simplicity of presentation. Each 4500 word report explores the breadth and complexity of individual work preferences and the impact of this on career journeys, team role preference and leadership style.

Rich layers of information offer multiple new perspectives for discussion.

Why do we feel motivated by some tasks and not others?

A personal Profile shows how preferences are formed, how strong and stable they are and what it means for how a person does their job and works with others.
