The primary drivers of team behaviour are the individual and collective values and beliefs. And of these two, values tend to be more powerful determinants than beliefs. In addition, many of the tensions that occur in teams, and are mistakenly thought to be due to personality clashes, are actually the result of differences in value systems.
The Complete Values Profile (CVP) questionnaire precisely defines which of the eight value systems an individual leader, team, division or organisation operates from. Specifically it identifies:
- A leader’s strategic, operational and managerial motivations
- Whether a leader’s values suit the challenges they face
- How authentic a leader may be as well as their strengths and blind spots
- Whether a leader tends to recruit in their own image or look for people that compliment their own capabilities
