During a recent conversation with a friend, he indicated his desire to be a part of a high performance team. It made me appreciate his leadership in a much greater way.
The best leaders
place a high value on creating a team culture. Author Patrick Lencioni even goes so far as to say that effective executives are obsessed with “building and maintaining a cohesive leadership team.”
Lencioni defines such a team with these words . . . “A cohesive team trusts one another, engages in constructive conflict, commits to group decisions and holds one another accountable.”
When you look at your leadership, I have two questions . . .
1. What are YOU obsessed with?
2. Does YOUR team match Lencioni’s definition?
As you lead today, give this some thought and take a step toward building a more cohesive team.
Leadership Begins at Home,
Is there anything you would add to Lencioni’s definition of a cohesive team?
Comment Below …
A cohesive team shares and buys into the same vision and values of the leadership of the team. If the players, staff and leaders all have different values and not a clear shared vision there will be breakdowns when the cohesiveness of the team is tested under stress. Good thought this morning Randy!
