Team cohesion is the degree to which individual members contribute to the functioning of the group as a whole. The members have social and emotional bonds that link them to each other and to the group at large. Work productivity can be enhanced by teams who work well together in pursuit of common goals. This Innovation Community is dedicated to fostering cohesion among members to achieve high performing teams.
