How to Create a Cohesive Team
Building a working team is easy. All you need is a budget, and you can go after anybody you want. However, there is a massive difference between a team and a cohesive team. First, you can assemble the best people to work on a project together, but that alone does not guarantee they’ll function as a unit.A cohesive team is one that has the ability to effectively work as one towards a common goal. It also means that individualism is almost non-existent and is instead replaced by trust, commitment, accountability, and results.Unfortunately, cohesiveness does not come naturally to most people. This is why in today’s episode, Lewis explains the meaning of team cohesiveness, the key attributes of a strong, cohesive team, and the steps you can take to improve cohesiveness among teams.[00:55] Introduction[01:50] The Scientific Models That Define Cohesion[03:05] Factors That Influence Cohesion in Teams[04:58] The Difference Between Cohesion and Teamwork[07:00] Cohesive Versus Dysfunctional Teams[09:16] How To Build Cohesive Teams[11:13] The Most Important Step to Building Team Cohesion[15:41] Cultural Behaviors That Strengthen Cohesive Teams[18:12] Accountability: The Backbone of a Cohesive Team[20:10] The Benefits of Having Leaders Who Uphold Team Values[23:58] Parting Thoughts This episode is brought to you by Athletic GreensGet your FREE 1-year supply of immune-supporting Vitamin D AND 5 FREE travel packs with your first purchase.

The Paradox of Perfectionism
May 29 2022
The Paradox of Perfectionism
As athletes, we are all perfectionists. Think about it: aren’t we all trying to be perfect in everything we do? Who wouldn’t want to be an athlete with a disciplined work ethic characterized by incredibly high standards for performance? But the thing is, perfectionistic traits are a double-edged sword. You can be a high achiever, hard-working, and motivated. But on the flip side, nothing ever feels good enough, and you’re always one critical thought away from burnout.In this episode, Lewis explains the Paradox of Perfectionism, some of the models that describe the origin of perfectionism, and how you can know when perfectionism is helping or hurting you. [02:37] Perfectionistic Traits Among Athletes[04:37] Understanding the Paradox of Perfectionism[05:28] Models That Describe the Origin of Perfectionism[10:55] Healthy Versus Unhealthy Perfectionism[16:38] High Professional and Personal Performance Standards[17:40] Parenting Styles and How They Contribute to Perfectionism [23:06] The Path to Unconditional Self-Acceptance[25:30] Mindfulness as The Antidote for Perfectionism[28:28] Life Is Never Perfect[31:10] Closing NotesThis episode is sponsored by Sport Yogi.Available on iOS & Android Connect with Lewis at:TikTok: @lewis_hatchettInstagram: @lewishatchett For more on the podcast visit www.lewishatchett.com/podcastContact the show at podcast@lewishatchett.comEmail your Athlete of the Week entry hereor DM at @lewishatchettGet your MindStrong Journal hereThis episode is sponsored by Sport Yogi.Available on iOS & AndroidConnect with Lewis at:TikTok: @lewis_hatchettInstagram: @lewishatchettFor more on the podcast visit www.lewishatchett.com/podcastContact the show at podcast@lewishatchett.comShop : lewishatchett.com/shop
