[Recap] People, Process, Technology -- Elements of a Successful Dispersed Team

On a recent Called to Coach: Australia Edition we spoke with Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach, Deon Rademeyer. Deon’s coaching focus is on using a strengths-based approach to improve team collaboration and development. 






Deon has worked in the field of technology and project management for most of his career. A few years back he left his corporate life to focus on his passion for people and coaching with CliftonStrengths, primarily working with groups and teams. After attending the 2016 CliftonStrengths Summit, Deon’s strengths coaching took on a new shape. He realized lots of people were coaching teams, and he was asked if there was more of a niche where he saw a need. When he reflected on his time coaching teams, he realized dispersed teams could really use strengths to be more successful. He was so pleased with the CliftonStrengths Summit that he booked and paid for the 2017 Summit as soon as the invite came out!

Deon knows how important understanding people is in order to achieve better processes. With teams, Deon uses Gallup’s Q12 as the baseline, then introduces CliftonStrengths. This helps him understand how people on the team operate, and knowing the “how” of performance helps teams answer the question of “who” to use for processes.

Deon spent 25 Years in Banking, Finance and Technology in both South Africa and Australia, mainly in the field of Project Management. He became a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach in 2014. He currently runs a consulting company called Team Diagnostics, which focuses on helping large, complex project teams setup for success using Gallup’s Q12 and CliftonStrengths. He has a keen interest in using Strengths to improve cross-border team collaboration between teams based in Australia and India.
