A cohesive team works together and lives by the Army Values in a culture of trust.

Cohesive teams are not born but are created by leaders who know how to have the tough conversations and make the right decisions. Leaders who encourage their teams to stay motivated and take ownership over their assigned tasks. Leaders who teach and model how to communicate effectively and achieve results.

Cohesive teams are not born but are created by leaders.

R2 Performance Center experts teach strategies and techniques to help junior leaders build unit cohesion and sustain ready and resilient teams.

Squad Leader Development Course

The Army leadership requirements outlined in ADP 6-22 emphasize integrating, demonstrating, and sustaining Army Values. The core competencies of leadership include the ability to build trust, communicate and create a positive environment. This course focuses on developing squad leaders’ leadership skills by teaching practical strategies for leading and developing others, and achieving results including concepts like communication, empathy, trust, and having tough conversations.

Team Building

Sometimes a team can benefit from getting to know each other, kicking-off a training event with an activity that energizes the group, or learning to work together to overcome challenges. R2 Performance Centers trainers can customize activities to help teams get to know each other better, learn about their communication and collaboration styles, and have fun while learning how to work together effectively.

Great Teams Workshop

Great Teams is a culture development program that brings together selected Soldiers and leaders from across the unit to engage in a series of exercises and discussions aimed at solidifying or redefining the unit’s shared philosophy, vision, values, and standards. Together these components comprise the unit’s culture. By defining an intentional culture, the unit has a foundation upon which to build well-led cohesive teams and teams committed to the Army professional ethic.

Engage Training

We can all think of times when we wished we had seen an issue sooner, stepped in, or alerted someone else of a concern. We cared, but we didn’t know how to do it. Research on pro-social behavior has shown that helping others improves our connections and our trust of others. Offering help to another person is a conscious process and is dependent on our ability to say “yes” at critical choice points. Engage teaches what those choice points are and how to make ourselves more likely to notice, take responsibility for, and act in critical moments to help a battle buddy before a problem escalates.
