Just imagine what your business would be like if
* Every employee was passionate about the work they do and as well as your organization as a whole.
* People in leadership roles understand the power of everyone being able to perform acts of leadership. And when a workplace culture of high trust, respect and personal accountability exists.
* All employees are educated, skilled and have been raised to think for themselves. They use their initiative to find the information needed to solve problems.

Is your leadership approach built in these ideas or killing them and the passion your workforce has towards their job? One of the key tools that we use to assist organizations to create cohesive teams with highly effective leaders is The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team developed by Patrick Lencioni and Wiley Publishing.

“Members of a leadership team can be confident that they’ve mastered this discipline when they can affirm the following statements:
* The leadership team is small enough (three to ten people) to be effective.
* Members of the team trust one another and can be genuinely vulnerable with each other.
* Team members regularly engage in productive, unfiltered conflict around important issues.
* The team leaves meetings with clear-cut, active, and specific agreements around decisions.
* Team members hold one another accountable to commitments and behaviors.
It’s easy to say “I trust you,” however in order to build a foundation of trust, team members have to be transparent and honest with one another. This requires being vulnerable with one another, admitting mistakes and asking for help when you need it. Vulnerability-based trust is the foundation of a cohesive team.” (Patrick Lencioni)

It is also important to keep in mind what a leadership team is. I find Patrick Lencioni’s definition very helpful; a leadership team is a small group of people who are collectively responsible for achieving a common objective for their organization.
