A Close Encounter of the Third Kind: How to Triangulate the Perfect Team

Your friend calls you and says, 'Hey Buddy,
there's a great new movie out. It's rated over 9/10 on IMDB. Want some free
You're thrilled. But there's a catch.
'Oh, I forgot to tell you,' your friend
says. 'You can only watch a third of the movie. And it might be the first third
or the second or the last, we won't know till we get there. Still interested?'
Your excitement is dropping faster than a
barometer before a rain cloud. It's not much of an evening out.
Yet many businesses still persist in paying
large sums of money for a 'one-third view' of their own staff. Almost all
psychometric tools are a single instrument. It's like trying to triangulate a
position with only one point of reference. It's a nonsense. An oxymoron. A fantasy.
Method Teaming' looks at Behaviors, (both
natural and adapted), Motivators, and Cognitive Structures (not how
intelligent you are, but how your mind channels the intelligence you have).  These
are three distinctive reference points that combine to pinpoint an individual's
natural strengths and talents. Armed with this knowledge, both the individual
and their bosses can make sure the right career moves are made in the future.
An end to 'I hate my job' and the beginning of 'I can't wait to get to work'.
But there's another advantage to Method
Teaming's holistic view. It has been proven over more than ten years and over
many thousands of assessments to be 99.7% accurate. It's a finished product not
a work in progress. And it will carry on being accurate as long as humans are
made the way they are now.
If you're still interested in a close
encounter with the top-rated film, you could turn to your calculator. That will
tell you that if you go to the movie theater with your friend seven times you
have a nearly 9 in 10 chance of seeing all three thirds, though not in the
right order. Fractions have become even less interesting than they were in
Method Teaming is exactly what it says on the
label. It gives you mission-perfect teams, 
methodically. All the members will
complement each other's natural talents and be 100% fit for purpose. You'll
triangulate a fully-formed team made from complete views of the individuals'
Intellects. No fractions need apply.
