Here are some stats suggesting how fixing teamwork can help with productivity and effectiveness, let alone creating awesome culture to work in:

Only 46 out of 100 workgroups within organizations create value for their companies.

According to venture capitalists, more than 60% of the reasons why startups they invested in failed are team-related.

Only 17% of all teams tend to be high performance.

Team Canvas is a tool that helps make teamwork more effective.

Who should use it?

As a leader or facilitator, you might experience moments when you need to bring team members together, clarify their goals, figure out their motivations and help them to be more aligned and productive.

Use Team Canvas to start a structured conversation with the team to bring everyone on the same page. Groups that go through Team Canvas sessions report higher clarity and alignment, and less friction and conflict. In the long run, use Team Canvas to start shaping the team culture at your company or collective.
