team development


People are the only true competitive advantage for an organization. In fact, it can better scale its impact when it calls upon the depth of talent, skills and attributes within. We have the boots-on-the-ground experience and formal training to help you do just that. Our goal is to bring out the best in your people, so you can move from where you are to where you want to be – as a team.

No mission can be met without a team driving it, whether staff, volunteers or a combination of both. But putting a group of individuals together doesn’t necessarily make a team, even if each person is a solo success. Adisa specializes in aligning high performance teams around evidence-based conditions essential for success, creating a healthy culture for people and organizations to thrive in pursuit of their mission.

If you’re struggling to partner with board members, executive leadership, staff or volunteers, we can help you build upon their strengths, discuss differences, and drive outcomes to affect change. Through expert evaluation, facilitation, training and in-the-moment coaching, we’ll keep you focused on the whole puzzle while defining and integrating each unique piece, from purpose to norms, effective meetings to respective roles, and everything in between. We will guide your team to become more than the sum of its parts, finding clarity around a shared vision. That’s what we call team work.

Team Diagnostic Survey™

The Team Diagnostic Survey™ (TDS) is the most rigorous and widely validated team effectiveness instrument on the market today, assessing teams on six conditions that predict up to 80% of their ultimate success. Among other things, the survey looks at team composition, purpose, diversity of skills and talent, structure, size, norms, rewards/recognition, resources and more. The resulting 27-page report helps teams and their leaders zero in on the levers that lead teams to become exceptional. Conducted by Adisa, TDS will serve as a guide in the design, (re)launch and coaching phases of any team development effort.

DiSC® Assessments

Everything DiSC® is a personal development learning experience that measures preferences and tendencies based on the DiSC® model. This simple yet powerful model describes four basic styles: D (dominance), I (influence), S (steadiness), and C (conscientiousness), and serves as the foundation for the Everything DiSC Application Suite. Participants receive personalized insights that deepen their understanding of self and others. The result is a more engaged, collaborative workforce that can spark meaningful culture improvement in an organization.

Leadership Culture Survey™

Both individual and collective leadership effectiveness are required to create great organizations where everyone thrives. The culture of an organization reflects its core values and the unwritten rules of “how things work around here.” Senior leaders can be intentional about how they nurture this and create a “leadership culture” by the way they lead together. Research tells us that 38% of organizational performance can be traced to the impact of collective leadership. The Leadership Culture Survey (LCS) provides senior leaders with feedback/insight regarding their collective impact. LCS measures leaders’ perception of their current leadership culture and compares/contrasts it with their own description of the ideal culture necessary for strategic and organization success. A detailed gap analysis shows specific, actionable areas for improvement.
