We have been using the Drexler Sibbet Team Performance Model for over 25 years. It’s been an amazing help to the teams and organizations with whom we have worked. Often I am asked about the history of the model and about Allen Drexler and David Sibbet. Below is a lecture done by David Sibbet which tells the story in his words. It’s worth watching as it explains the model while discussing how it came into being.
We have made use of this model for over 25 years. It’s the most comprehensive team model out there. The model uses simple and direct language to describe the journey teams make on the way to high performance and beyond.
The value it brings to leaders is a visual statement that describes the seven stages of team development along with three keys for each stage. The keys give an easy to understand summary of the issues team members must face and then resolve on their way to high performance.
Using the model creates a structured way to hold meaningful dialogue about where the team is now, and what can team members do to enhance their productivity. The model makes it easy and simple to identify what has to be done and by whom. It also makes clear that team development is everyone’s business.
If you have any questions about it’s use or about how you can become certified in using the Drexler Sibbet Team Performance Mode in your work, ask us about joining our guild. We help both external and internal consultants learn to use the model and integrate it into their consulting practice.
