Ways to measure your team's skills

In this video, Chris Hope explains why it's important to measure your team's skills, including with tools such as MBTI.

This video highlights the importance of understanding the skills and capabilities of team members for effective teamwork and productivity. Assessing the team’s skills allows managers and business owners to strategically allocate tasks, leverage their expertise, and provide targeted training or resources to enhance their abilities. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is presented as an example of an assessment tool that can categorize individuals into different personality types based on preferences, helping tailor management approaches to individual team members. Assessments like the MBTI also aid in identifying skill gaps within the team, enabling targeted training or seeking external resources to address them. However, while assessments provide valuable insights, it is essential to combine them with team feedback to make informed decisions and engage with the team’s skills effectively.
