NYC Vistage Leadership Development: The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team

How well does your team communicate?

Do they discuss issues openly…or do they hoard information?

Do they trust each other enough to admit mistakes…or do they politic, posture, and promote themselves?

Do they debate issues passionately…or avoid conflict with artificial harmony?

Do they commit to decisions they disagree with…or drag their feet and undermine?

Do they focus on collective results …or put their own needs ahead of the organization’s? 

Imagine what you could accomplish with a cohesive executive team. Really, is there anything more important to your success? In this workshop, you will learn ways to build a more cohesive, effective, and fun executive leadership team and take away practical strategies, exercises, and ways to build trust, master conflict, achieve commitment, embrace accountability, and focus on results.

Not only will you uncover your executive team’s communications challenges, but you will improve your own leadership communications, so you can better help your team listen, decide, prioritize, persuade, motivate, give feedback, trust, ask, focus on what matters, and inspire.
