What qualities do a cohesive team have. It is a team whose decision making is fast and good. They avoid wasting energy and time on politics, second-guessing, posturing, and confusion. There is no waste of time on wrong issues. Results are seen and the team is confident. Team members have fun and are fulfilled.

An online team assessment will be asked of you. Team assessment is more than the current functioning of the team. It also includes questions about what you think are behaviors that would improve the team. Your individual responses will not be shared by name since it is a confidential assessment.

After everyone has taken the assessment, the results will be given. The results will be personalized.

Then these results will be gone over in a few facilitated meetings which you will participate in. You will have an idea of what it makes a cohesive team. Issues that will tackle include commitment, accountability, trust, conflict, and results. Thinking differently about yourself, about your fellow teammates, and your team’s purpose will be the challenge given to you. The experience is highly powerful and beneficial as you will discover when you participate in it.
