a few words
Founded in 1989 by Founder Dianne Crampton, TIGERS Success Series, Inc. helps leaders build high performance teams and cooperative work communities that employees enjoy returning to after a few days off. When committed and accountable employees and an engaging work culture are desired outcomes of workforce development efforts, TIGERS Success Series provides whole-system, team development solutions.
After the launch of Dianne’s primary research at Gonzaga University into the qualities that are required to make good groups superior and successful, six principles emerged. These six principles form the TIGERS® acronym, which stands for trust, interdependence, genuineness, empathy, risk and success. Then the task was to determine if these six principles could be isolated in team behavior. Four years later and after two large independent studies, the results were conclusive. Not only could the six principles be individually measured in team behavior, they also predicted team problems and strengths. This pointed the direction to accurate team interventions that gave team developers and executives measurable team development information to ensure the best return on their team training and development initiatives. It also helped leaders transform under performing teams into excellent ones in remarkably short periods of time.
The six TIGERS principles are based on universal human needs that make good common sense to people. When all six principles measure high in team behavior, there are predictable outcomes. If one or more of the six principles measure low in team behavior, there are also predictable outcomes that accurately point to your next steps. It is the mission of the TIGERS Team Survey™ to take all the guesswork out of high performance team development.
- 1To provide accurate information for team development and planning initiatives
Your team may indeed be on its way to peak efficiency, but you have to evaluate early and often to avoid predictable pitfalls.
- 2To provide accurate information for team leadership coaching and training initiatives
Our research suggests leaders are the primary factor behind employee productivity, commitment, and bottom-line profitability. You need the right information to assess how leadership behavior is strengthening or weakening your team’s dynamic and how to support leaders with the right training and coaching resources.
- 3To help you measure team development and team leadership improvement over time.
Positive change does not happen over night. Both teams and leaders need time to integrate improvements. Therefore, 6 months to a year later you can reassess and compare team opinions to determine how your interventions have improved skills and attitudes. You also receive accurate information to pursue the next step.
