MetaRasa Business Tools
 

Overview

MetaRasa Business Tools provide information to help support important decisions that are made by individuals and teams. They are cost-effective, flexible, easy to use and aimed at professionals such as managers, consultants, coaches and facilitators. There are three main tools in the MetaRasa system: the Team Health Check, the Team Dynamics Assessment and MMDI (personality type) questionnaire.

Team Health Check

A Team Health Check helps the team to self-assess how well they are performing. It not only generates some simple and powerful graphs, but also allows team members to express their views in a safe and confidential way.

When clients have submitted their responses, they are given a link which enables them to review what they have said, and change it if they wish. As the administrator, once you have closed the project, you have the ability to edit or summarise those views, or to remove any inappropriate content, before producing the report. This ensures that, when the team discusses the report, they focus on group rather than individual issues.

In addition to the team assessing themselves, you can also ask for views from people outside the team - such as the views of senior management, peer groups, clients or other stakeholders, which can also be submitted anonymously. By using separate projects, you can produce separate internal and external reports. This provides the team with 360 degree feedback, so they can compare how they see themselves as a team with how the team is seen by other groups.

A Team Health Check is a good place to start when looking to assess or improve team performance.

Team Dynamics Assessment

The Team Dynamics Assessment is more focused and in-depth. As with the Team Health Check, the questionnaire can be completed by team members and/or people outside the team - though people need to be very close to the team to answer the questions.

The Team Dynamics Assessment helps the team to become aware of the hidden team dynamics that may be affecting team performance. The report not only includes an assessment, but also suggests some questions for the team to consider when discussing the results.

MMDI personality type

The MMDI questionnaire produces four different reports, which can be of benefit to individuals whether they are in a team or being coached to develop their career or leadership skills. The MMDI also produces an online summary which is aimed not only at introducing the topic but also at helping people to work out for themselves their own personality type.

If the client disagrees with the result of the questionnaire, which happens in about 15% of cases, they can override the result, which is then reflected in some parts of the reports. That is, some of the reports are based on a direct comparison between the way they have completed the questionnaire and the records on our research database, which contains responses from nearly 20,000 people. However, other parts of the reports are based on the client's personality type, and it is these sections they can change by overriding the questionnaire results.

Your clients can view any combination of up to four reports, that you choose when setting up the project:

  1. The first report is a introduction to personality type. It starts off with a simple system of five colours, to show some of the basic differences between people. It then goes on to discuss each of the personality type preferences in more detail, and concludes with a description of the client's personality type and a summary of the sixteen types. It also comes with a bonus pdf that provides lots of practical information on how to use your knowledge of personality type in everyday social and working relationships.
  2. The second report introduces the personality radar and the stretch diagram. Our research database contains the results of a questionnaire that asked people who were doing a particular job to identify what types of behaviours are needed to be successful in that job. The stretch diagram compares the unique preferences of the client with the unique demands of each job to produce a stretch diagram, which uses colours that can be distinguished by most people who are colour-blind. Each segment on the radar represents a way of thinking or behaving. If a job requires more of that behaviour than a client might like then the segment is highlighted in a deep, dark red. If a job might not provide a client with sufficient opportunity to use their preferences, then the segment is highlight in a deep, dark blue. Where there is a good match, the segment is white, or a very light green. There is also a simple tick system, to show how well each job matches the preferences of the client, and how much people doing that job said they enjoyed it.
  3. The third report examines leadership style and qualities. It looks at the leadership profile of the client, suggesting ways in which leadership strengths can be built upon, and how potential weaknesses can be mitigated. It also examines how demands can change when moving from a staff to a leadership position within a few key industries or disciplines, and includes stretch diagrams to show how the client's preferences match those demands.
  4. The final report takes an advanced look at personality type. It helps develop self-awareness and self-understanding, by looking in more detail at what makes the client tick.
