Visualize your team's strengths and blind spots

Crystal has helped me a lot as a leader...

Even though I've personally been looking at the product for more than 4 years, it is only recently that I've been able to get a full visual of my entire team's personality.

Here's what our team's Group Report looks like:

crystal---group-report---map

crystal---group-report---list

From this, I can see that:

  • We're loaded with D-types: assertive people who like to shape and changethings.
  • We don't have many S-types or C-types: more reserved people who prefer to stabilize and organize things.

From my own experience, I can tell you how this plays out. We sometimes change things too fast, we challenge each other frequently, and ultimately we value action.

The report also gives more insights into these strengths and potential blind spots:

Furthermore, I can view how each individual person relates to the team as a whole (and then I can create a separate, even deeper Group Fit report if I want to):

crystal---group-report---group-fit

I typically use this as a reference to understand where my team's culture will naturally settle, and also to remind myself where we may experience imbalances.

As a practical tool, the report has value for:

  • Understanding the types of personalities that I may want to hire, in order to bring more balance.
  • Understanding who may feel stressed if the team drifts too far towards one personality.
  • Learn the best way to communicate to the team as a whole.

The Personality Behind WeWork's Downfall
At the start of 2019, WeWork was on top of the world. It was valued at nearly $47 billion and crowned one of the fastest growing, most valuable startups in recent history. It’s founder and CEO, Adam Neumann, was soaring as well, preparing to take his co-working empire public, which would make him a billionaire several times over. The company was growing at a historically rapid pace, doubling over the last year to over half a million members renting desks at WeWork locations in 111 cities globally. Revenues were compounding as well, on track to surpass $3 billion at the end of the year.
