What do I look for when analyzing TeamEcho Insights?

A high performing team consists of healthy and motivated team members. TeamEcho provides you with approaches to achieve and ensure both in your team.

The following graph shows you the structure and the correlations between the individual categories of TeamEcho Insights. This gives you a good overview of how the results of the different categories can affect the motivation and health of your team and allows you to build up missing resources and use existing ones.

Guide for interpreting results

 

Look at the results in the categories "Motivation & Satisfaction" and "Wellbeing & Health." Do the values tend to be high or low? Is there an improvement or a downwards trend since the last survey? 

  • Good scores in both categories: Currently, your team members appear to be satisfied, motivated, efficient, and healthy. Your team members' potential should therefore be well-leveraged at the moment. The objective is to ensure that it stays that way. 
  • Critical values in the category "Motivation & Satisfaction": Your team members currently suffer from low motivation. Now it is a matter of finding out what the primary causes are. If these are known, it is easier to exactly set measures that will raise motivation again. 
  • Critical values in the category "Wellbeing & Health": Your team members suffer from high stress levels and/or health problems. Now it is a matter of finding the causes for this in order to be able to set measures that effectively address the stressors and/or the negative implications for team members' health. 
  • Critical values in both categories: Your team members currently suffer from low motivation as well as high stress levels and/or adverse health effects. As soon as the primary causes are known, it is easier to implement appropriate measures that can raise motivation and contain the stress perception or the negative health effects. 

General trends

In addition to the two "main" categories, it is important that you look at the other categories as well.

  • Are there categories or questions with particularly high values or positive comments? These are your teams' strengths or resources. Pay attention to them and draw on them, especially in stressful times.
  • Are there categories or questions with low(er) values or critical feedback? These are the weak points or obstacles. We recommend finding actions for improvement.
  • Are there categories or questions with varied distributions or very diverse answers? There are obviously different perceptions in the team and you should find out together what (not who!) is causing this.
  • Have values improved since the last survey on the topic? Be happy about the upward trend - it's your shared achievement!
  • Have values dropped? A decline can express a natural fluctuation or can be the beginning of a downward trend. It is important to remain attentive, to observe closely and, if necessary, to take action in due time.
  • Are you surprised about certain survey results or comments that you did not expect? These show your previous "blind spots." We all have blind spots, but feedback from outside reduces them and enables us to get a more complete picture. 

Helpful clues

The infobox in your TeamEcho dashboard helps you to identify relevant trends and to take a closer look at them. For example, you can find clues if the answers to a question are very different, or if there are steady upward or downward trends in a category.
