Balancing teams with personality testing

Leaders tend to create teams in ways that do not include an understanding of team dynamics.

Personalities that mesh, or don’t mesh, are more important to team success than the hard skills or the expertise that team members bring to the team.

Understanding and assessing personality, soft skills, and values are keys to creating a team where the sum is greater than any of the individual contributors.

This style of balancing teams for productivity and performance is laid out in a recent Harvard Business Review article by leaders of Hogan Personality Assessments.
