Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team

The workshop design can accommodate intact teams or groups of leaders, either way the training is applied and focused on their real team issues and dynamics. This training helps leaders understand and navigate the critical dynamics to drive high performance teams:

  • Build Trust, otherwise members pull away and insulate themselves from each other.

  • Have Productive Conflict, otherwise members engage in "had-nodding" & artificial harmony.

  • Build Commitment, otherwise there is ambiguity and important things go undone.

  • Focus on Accountability, otherwise standards erode and finger pointing begins.

  • Achieve Results Together, otherwise team efforts are diffused or at odds.
