Successful team members don't do the same thing at the same time. They do the right thing at the right time. A clear understanding of individual roles, in the process of working together toward a common goal, is the first step to creating high performance teams.

Discover the Right Roles for the Right People

The Innovate with C.A.R.E. Profile® identifies five key roles in innovative team performance:

  • Creator: Generates original concepts, goes beyond the obvious and sees the big picture. Hands off to the Advancer.

  • Advancer: Recognizes new directions, develops ways to promote ideas and moves toward implementation. Hands off tasks to a Refiner.

  • Refiner: Challenges and analyzes ideas to detect potential problems and may hand plans back to Advancer or Creator before handing off tasks to an Executor.

  • Executor: Lays the groundwork for implementation, manages the details and moves the process to completion.

  • Facilitator: Works throughout the process to ensure tasks are handed off to the right people at the right time.

    The profile uses the "Z Process" to map the flow of assigning roles, completing tasks, then "handing off" to the next person on the team. Using the five C.A.R.E. roles in the "Z Process" gets new teams moving forward quickly and gets current teams unstuck.
