Are You Leading a Cohesive Team?

Last night during a 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, high performance, team.

Leadership Begins at Home,


Is there anything you would add to Lencioni’s definition of a cohesive team?

I would add the “and is quick to reconcile offenses for the purpose of keeping the team cohesive”
