Team Management Profile
I recently had the pleasure of working with a group of over 60 Masters of HRM students at one of Australia’s leading university, the Queensland University of Technology.
TMS has had a long association with Masters Programmes at QUT and this year we are working for the first time in their Leadership and Executive Coaching subject.
The other day, a facilitator asked about an alternative exercise to the Chris and Pat role play. A few learners in the group had received their TMPs about a year ago and they had used this dialogue between a Creator-Innovator and a Concluder-Producer in their earlier training. They wanted to re-focus on communication, building on what they already knew to go deeper, and where looking for options.
The activity we chatted about is a similar case study scenario, however, instead of being based on a discussion between two people, it is based on two emails sent from two different people about the same organisational problem (and doesn’t require a role play).

Many insightful tips were generated from the forum discussions. The salient tips most commonly agreed upon, across all forums nationally, were:
Your teams love the Team Management Profile (TMP), but how can you gain more from the TMP?
The latest enhancements to the TMP provide learners with their own personal online activity centre, giving them access to interactive activities, instant snapshot data on work priorities and special videos. All these extra advanced features ensure learners get the most out of their TMP.
