Mastering Team Leadership Using the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive TEAM

Have you ever worked on a team that engages in gossip and holds grudges? One that can’t have a productive debate to get all the best ideas out on the table? How about a team that starts second-guessing “team” decisions the moment meetings end? If you have, this workshop will help you define more cohesive behaviors—the ones that high-performing, fun teams exhibit most often. This workshop is designed for team members in any position, from front-line representative to top-level executive.
