Team Management Profile (TMP)

The Team Management Profile measures an individual’s work preferences.  This provides valuable feedback in the key management areas of leadership, decision-making, team building, interpersonal skills, organisation and information management.  The TMP profile highlights an individual’s strong points, as well as indicating areas where there is room for improvement.

In essence, the Team Management Profile measures four TMI wheelkey issues in any work situation. These are:

  • how people prefer to relate with others;
  • how people prefer to gather and use information;
  • how people prefer to make decisions;
  • how people prefer to organise themselves and others.

The TMI produces a full report on an individual’s preferences giving a person’s main role and related roles from the 8 type wheel.
