This qualitative study explores the potential connection of gender, team cohesion and relational boundaries in the workplace. Information gathered through in-depth interviews was analyzed for patterns of connection between the three themes and compared to current research literature. Existing findings of factors that contribute to team cohesion were supported such as development of trust, respect, commitment to task and unified goals. Further research including gender specific studies and further definition and study of relational boundaries in the workplace would be beneficial.
