dc.description.abstractWhile existing literature provides much insight into instinct and team development as separate concepts, there are limited studies that combine these areas to investigate the role of innate characteristics in team development. This paper discusses the effects of implementing a profiling tool based on innate characteristics, and the potential benefits this practice may have for organisational teams. Using longitudinal case research, the study presents findings from eight teams across four organisations, comparing the development of teams that implemented the profiling tool versus teams that did not. The findings suggest that a greater awareness of innate characteristics can result in accelerated team development, particularly for new teams. This acceleration is achieved through the reduction and resolution of conflict, and an increased understanding of working styles, which enables more efficient communication. These findings have theoretical implications for the field of human resource management and practical implications for managers in organisational environments.
