The TeamSTEPPS triangle logo is a visual model that represents some basic but critical
concepts related to teamwork training as explained below.
Individuals can learn four primary trainable teamwork skills. These are:
3. Situation monitoring.
4. Mutual support.
If a team has tools and strategies it can leverage to build a fundamental level
of competency in each of those skills, research has shown that the team can enhance
three types of teamwork outcomes:
For example, if every member of the team has basic competency in situation monitoring
and communication, it is incumbent upon them to build shared mental models more
effectively. Improved outcomes beget greater proficiency (improved teamwork skills)
and a desire to be a part of the team (attitudes). Such is the reciprocal relationship
between skills and outcomes.
