Here is a six step list to developing a cohesive team.  I found this in the Coaching and Leadership Journal.  The article also deals with team building and goal setting.  Enjoy!

Step One: Set the team goal. All team members work together by fulfilling their roles and helping each other to succeed.

Step Two: Determine the roles that are necessary for the team to succeed. Emphasize that all roles are of equal importance.

Step Three: Carefully evaluate and place the right team members in the right roles. Explain what that role is and why it is important to the team.

Step Four: Allow each team member to develop within that role. They must be given freedom to create new and better ways to do the job.

Step Five: Evaluate, evaluate, evaluate.

Step Six: Hold regular meetings to ensure everyone understands the team goals and other aspects of team play.
