This study sought to determine if an intervention in which the Parker Team Player Survey (Parker, 2008) was administered had an effect on workgroup cohesion and team satisfaction levels in a family-owned business. Data were collected from eight people in one family-owned business. Participants completed the Parker Team Player Survey and were given a brief synopsis of each other's team player styles. Each participant also underwent an interview to assess cohesion and team satisfaction levels. Eight weeks after the initial intervention, each participant was re-interviewed to determine any effects on team player satisfaction and cohesion levels. It was concluded that the intervention had a small impact on both workgroup cohesion and team satisfaction levels, team player styles have an impact on team effectiveness, and Company X was a high-performing team with a high level of cohesion prior to the intervention.
