Teams on the Herrmann Platform
Teams enable groups of Thinkers who collaborate on a permanent or temporary basis to use the Herrmann platform to understand each other and to explore their thinking preferences.
You can find a detailed overview about Teams via the overview Article below.
What do I need to take advantage of these features?
Your team members need to have taken the HBDI© assessment and opted in to sharing their profile via their Thinker Portal. Your HBDI© Certified Practitioner will then have to create a team in Axon and add you to the team. Afterwards, your Certified Practitioner will debrief your team on their HBDI© results.
How should I use the Teams feature with my Team?
You can create your own team of "thinkers" who have opted to share their profile with the organization.
From the Thinker portal look for your Teams Tile and the "Create Team" button:
Then choose the division or your Organization if prompted.
Then name your team...something that the whole team will recognize on their Portal.
Now you are read to add team members and save your team:
You can search by name or email address. When the person you want to add shows up, just click the pls sign to add them to your team.
NOTE: If you search for someone and there are no results, chances are they either haven't completed an HBDI Thinking Styles Assessment OR they haven't opted to share their results "yet".
Once you have your team members added, you can save the team and review the information on your portal.
We encourage you to let your Team know you've created the team and that they should login to
https://journey.herrmannsolutions.net/thinker to see their team results.
It is a great way to prepare for the next meeting!
There are several ways to use the Teams feature with your team:
- Open up team member profiles before 1-1s: Before meeting with your peers or manager, you can leverage the information to better work and collaborate with them.
- Read through the Understand My Team section: The Understand My Team can help you better understand your team members, and how to work with them, as well as helping you see patterns in how your team approaches problems or interacts.
- Take a screen shot of your own profile and make it your avatar on slack, gmail, or any other team tool.
- Take screen shots of profile graphics and paste them in presentations to serve as prompts or reminders when having discussions
