Parker Team Player Survey

Identify personal style in 1 of 4 team player styles in any team environment.


The Parker Team Player Survey measures an individual’s style as a team player. The survey results lead to the identification of the individual’s preference for one of four different team player styles. The PTPS can be used to assess current strengths and provide a basis for increasing team effectiveness.

Parker Team Player Survey

The PTPS is an easy-to-use self-assessment exercise that helps individuals identify their primary team player style—contributor, collaborator, communicator, or challenger. They discover how to best use their style for improved team performance and how to adjust the role they play on the team to meet the team’s needs. Each survey includes complete scoring information, interpretation of the results, and feedback materials that help team members understand their primary and less-used styles. The PTPS is an excellent tool for use in providing insight when forming teams, as an informative icebreaker activity for newly formed teams, or as a development tool for intact teams. A powerful learning exercise that can be used in any training program designed to build stronger, more effective relationships, it is a versatile tool for personal and professional development applications, including customer service, sales, supervisory management, and coaching and counseling.
