The ultimate goal of building greater trust, healthy conflict, commitment, and accountability is one thing: the achievement of results.
The ultimate goal of encouraging trust, healthy conflict, commitment, and accountability is to achieve results. And yet, as it turns out, one of the greatest challenges to team success is the inattention to results. In the context of a cohesive team, results:
- refer to the collective goals of the team
- are not limited to financial measures, but are more broadly related to expectations and outcome-based performance
But what would a team be focused on other than results? Team status and individual status are the prime candidates. A focus on team status occurs when merely being part of a group is satisfying enough, regardless of results. Individual status refers to the familiar tendency of people to focus on enhancing their own positions or career prospects at the expense of their team.
The Five Behaviours of a Cohesive Team assessment gives team members a sense of their team’s unique strengths and areas of improvement.
