Collective Performance

There are many ways to define a team, but one thing is certain: a team is not just the sum of its individual members and talent. Whether it has 2 or 200 members, a team must share the same goal and share responsibilities to accomplish a shared task or action. This requires interconnections between team members whose actions are interdependent.

As a team is not a person, is it possible to manage it and steer it towards excellence by dealing with the team collectively rather than with such or such a member? The answer is yes: a team has a mind and an intelligence that creates synergy and exists as its own entity, not as the sum of its individual members. The team is a unit that can and must be coached to develop its abilities and realise its full potential.


TEAM BOOSTER is a collective performance analysis and development tool derived from three years’ doctoral research on collective performance in close collaboration with the Laboratoire Motricité, Interactions et Performance (motor skill, interaction and performance laboratory) at the University of Nantes. Based on the behavioural assessment of the members of a team, TEAM BOOSTER provides a rich and precise review of the team’s collective operations in addition to focus areas to improve collective efficiency and performance.


Would you like to outsource the TEAM BOOSTER process? Our team of consultants will take charge of the whole approach: structure, questionnaire administration, data processing, results feedback to the manager and HR, and collective feedback to the team.


PERF MAP is a tool devised for decision-makers wishing to study the behavioural particularities of a target population / team (e.g. a business unit, subsidiary, geographical area, business line, position, etc.) and draw up one or more suitable action plans as a result. PERF MAP uses a behavioural skill model devised with the company (management, customer relations, etc.) to generate a map of the individual positions of the members of a team. The tool can also objectively detect key and discriminatory behaviour potentially exhibited by the study group.

We decided to pursue a collective process, principally to avoid individualisation whereby we would say to ourselves “well this person is just like that, so that’s why it’s not working.” TEAM BOOSTER immediately set us on a joint path by providing anonymous and collective results.
The team learnt a lot from the process. Things we had already surmised were confirmed in black and white, and we were able to identify the major blocks that we needed to address together.
