Elements of a Cohesive Team

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.


Three elements are always present in any effective, cohesive team: open communication, cooperation, and trust. Like the strands of a cord, these elements hold the team together and give it strength. Without these elements, team members will not participate fully in team activities and they won’t find true satisfaction in their work. When trust and open communication is present, ideas flow and people find solutions to problems. When there’s cooperation, team members feel connected to each other, and morale is high.
This course introduces techniques for building a cohesive team and highlights how poor communication, a trust-deficient atmosphere, and a lack of cooperation among team members leads to failure of the team achieving its goals. This course covers what needs to happen in order to reach true unity and cohesiveness, which will in turn take the team to new heights.
