  • Take Intact Teams to New Levels

    A team is a relatively small number of people (from three to twelve) who meet on a regular basis and are collectively responsible for results. The team members share common goals as well as the rewards and responsibilities for achieving them. Not every group is a team. For example, a group that appears to be a team might simply be a collection of people who report to the same manager, but who have relatively little interdependence and mutual accountability. If a group does not meet the criteria of a true team, this process is unlikely to produce the results they expect.

    To gain the competitive advantage, teams must focus on the five important behaviors: Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability and Results. In this program, each module builds on the previous one. Exercises within each module gives participants to try practicing the behaviors.
    As part of this program, each team member will experience The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team assessment.
