Team cohesion is an important antecedent of team performance, but our understanding of this relationship is mired by inconsistencies in how cohesion has been conceptualized and measured. The nature of teams has also changed over time, and the effect of this change is unclear. By meta-analyzing the cohesion-performance relationship (k=195, n=12,023), examining measurement moderators, and distinguishing between ‘traditional’ and ‘modern’ teams, various insights for both research and practice were uncovered, which Dr. Grossman will discuss.
