Teamability: use this technology to better understand how your team works

Developed by a pair of behavioral scientists, Teamability uses tests to produces reports on each team member that aim to tell you how that person fits with your team.

Updated 3/21/13 10:31 a.m. to correct the fact that The Gabriel Institute received a trademark for Teamability, not a patent, as we previously reported.

The Gabriel Institute wants to help you understand how your company works together — what each team members contributes, how they work with others and if their responsibilities jive with their personality. The five-person Center City based team is doing that with their Teamability product.

Developed by a pair of behavioral scientists, Teamability produces reports on each team member that aim to tell you how that person fits with your team. It does this through a series of “self-directed tests,” as Forbes put it. Last winter, the company raised more than $40,000 in a crowdfunding campaign to offer the service to 10,000 entrepreneurs for free.

Make a request to try Teamability here. Include the characters “T410K” in your request. The company asks that startups only request the service if they are involved in an educational or support program, like an accelerator or an incubator.

Teamability is not a personality test, insists executive vice president Mark Talaba, saying that personality tests gather “quantitative data,” whereas its service offers “qualitative results.” Teamability’s service involves behavioral simulation prompts, like one that asks you to imagine you’re an actor who gets to choose between a number of roles.

Langhorne incubator Novotorium is among the 150 customers who are using Teamability, Talaba said. The company also received a trademark for Teamability last week.

Dr. Janice Presser, one of the scientists that developed Teamability, heads the company. She’s 66 and lives in Center City.
