Building more engaged teams in the NHS
How Gateshead Health NHS Trust improved teamwork and reduced absence
The Insights Discovery model is a simple and accessible four colour model which, accompanied by an Insights Discovery Personal Profile, helps people to understand more about themselves and others.
It creates a common language that makes it easier to identify strengths and address weaknesses, so that individuals and teams can perform at their highest level.
The Gateshead Health NHS Trust identified that teamwork was one of their major development areas and introduced Insights Discovery to improve communication and collaboration.
We helped the teams to:
One team worked within a particularly stressful unit and suffered from high levels of stress-related absence. After implementing Insights Discovery and taking real steps to promote its application in the workplace, absence levels were reduced from 40% to 3%.
This team has since won three national awards.
It is life changing and the teams that I’ve worked with have a new language.
