Question and answer
describe how cohesion affects team motivation
One definition of cohesion is a group property with individual manifestations of feelings of belongingness or attraction to the group? (Lieberman et al., 1973: 337). It is generally accepted that group cohesion and performance are associated. [ [ However, the issue of a cause/effect relationship between group cohesion and performance is not completely resolved. Generally, there tend to be more
studies supporting a positive relationship between group cohesion and performance.? [1] With that in mind the following article is an effort to enhance group/team cohesion and as a result help improve group/team performance. Teamwork has most often been associated with positive effects regarding individuals? efforts and performance. Studies have shown that teamwork leads to increased effort and performance, and reduced turnover. On the other hand, research also show that when people pool their contributions into group work, they achieve less than might be expected based on the sum of their individual abilities. One explanation for a reduction in potential productivity is loss of motivation. This reduction in motivation and effort when individuals work collectively, compared when they work individually, is described as social loafing. The Cohesion and Motivation in High Performance Groups is planned to involve several high performance groups from the military system, sport, business and politics. The objective of the study is to analyze how variance in team cohesion affects the team member s attitude, motivation and contribution to the team. ] ]
