Building Cohesive Teams 

Teams are an important building block of successful organizations. Whether the focus is on service, quality, cost, value, speed, efficiency, performance, or other similar goals, teams are the basic unit that support most organizations.

Success as a manager is heavily influenced by how well your team operates and what kind of results they achieve. Is your team able to effectively solve problems? Can they resolve conflict? Are they enthusiastic and motivated to do their best? Do they trust one another and work well together?
