Jeffery D Whippo Explains What TLM (Team Leadership Model) Is Jeffery D Whippo , a well-educated leader of teams and people, feels that team effectiveness can be best understood in terms of inputs, processes, and outcomes. He says that by identifying certain process problems in teams, leaders can use the TLM (Team Leadership Model) model to diagnose appropriate leverage points for action.

Three Critical Functions for Team Leadership, According To Jeffery D Whippo:

Three Critical Functions for Team Leadership, According To Jeffery D Whippo Within the TLM model, Jeffery D Whippo describes three critical functions for team leadership which are - Dream, Design and Develop. He explains that in TLM, the major leadership functions of Dream, Design and Development are applied through inputs and context.

Jeffery Describes the Dream and Design Functions for Team Leadership:

Jeffery Describes the Dream and Design Functions for Team Leadership Jeffery says that in order to establish an effective team, a leader must first set the directions for the team, this is the Dream function. According to him, highly effective teams need a vision and leaders can use everything from imagery to metaphors to allow the followers to visualize the mission. Furthermore he explains that a leader must take into consideration all organizational inputs (reward systems, education systems, information systems), team inputs and individual inputs (interests and motivations, skills and abilities, values and attitudes). He says that these inputs compromise the Design function and allow the creation of the team tasks, composition, and set norms.

Jeffery Explains What the Final Function i.e. ‘Development’ Entails:

Jeffery Explains What the Final Function i.e. ‘Development’ Entails Jeffery Whippo explains that once the direction is set and the organizational and individual inputs drive the team Design, process criteria are developed such as effort, knowledge and skills, and strategy which result in the Development leadership function. It is within this function, Jeff confers, where processes and procedures are developed and monitored in order to drive continuous growth and improvement of the team. Whippo strongly feels that the development of the team must be continuous in order to ensure that the team is well trained, developed and set up for continuous improvement.
