This is TeamFluent

Today's world of work is a challenging environment. As its complexity continues to explode, while simultaneously becoming more networked and globalized, collaboration and listening skills become ever so important. We begin learning these skills at school, but we at TeamFluent think this education should continue throughout our professional career.

In changing job roles and situations, people need a wide array of core skills. These include analyzing and solving complex problems, working smoothly together with others, operating under constantly changing circumstances, and acting responsibly and respectfully towards others.

TeamFluent is a research-based, practical solution for improving teamwork in real-life situations at workplaces. Since working skillfully together cannot be learned from books or practiced individually, we invite your team to try TeamFluent, together!

Key Features

Quick and Easy to Use The solution seamlessly integrates into existing group work practices. The mobile interface is intuitive and easy to use.

Detailed Reporting Watch your team and yourself progress. TeamFluent visualizes skillful collaboration and teamwork and shows development over time.

Scientifically Robust We founded TeamFluent on solid research, and tailored it for contextual evaluation of concrete work practices.

Research-based Unlike most tools on the market, TeamFluent has its roots in extensive research. We designed it to measure the skills which drive team performance in the modern world of work. The solution has been extensively validated with private and public sector organizations. It’s not a survey; it’s a scientifically proven, psychometrically sound instrument.

Engaging and Rewarding TeamFluent is not a onetime intervention. Rather, it’s meant to be used consistently along you and your team’s journey. If you want to get better at something, you don’t try it once and just leave it there, right? TeamFluent will support your team throughout the year, focusing on mastering one manageable set of skills at a time.

Contextual TeamFluent is not one of those surveys where you wait two weeks for the results and another two weeks for a debriefing. We designed TeamFluent to smoothly integrate into existing team work practices, enabling your team to implement it right now. Instant feedback visualizes your team’s strengths and challenges, allowing you to start discussing development actions immediately.
