Extraordinary Teams Inventory 2.0

The updated version 2.0 of the Extraordinary Teams Inventory was released in November 2021.

What's the difference between an ordinary team and an extraordinary one? Extraordinary teams can achieve tangible results, but they also do something ordinary teams cannot; they cultivate an exciting, collaborative environment built upon mutual trust, respect, and engagement.

Make Your Team Extraordinary…

The Extraordinary Teams Inventory (ETI 2.0)

The Extraordinary Teams Inventory 2.0 is not your ordinary team assessment; it’s the powerful team development solution that will transform your organization’s teams from just plain ordinary to absolutely extraordinary.

It serves as a catalyst for team discussions, decision-making, and action steps for moving toward a higher level of performance and an increased sense of personal fulfillment.

Team members are asked to rate their team experience when it comes to Ten Practices that Create Extraordinary Teams. The ETI team results are displayed in a Team Report along a scale that moves from Ordinary to Solid to Extraordinary performance.
