The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ has a simple goal: To facilitate a learning experience that helps professionals and their organizations discover what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team. The Five Behaviors profile, which provides both individual and team feedback, is grounded in the model described in The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, the internationally best-selling leadership fable by Patrick Lencioni. With this program, participants will learn how, as a team, they score on the key components of the model: trust, conflict, commitment, accountability, and results. Additionally, the program is powered by Everything DiSC®, a model that helps individuals to understand themselves and others better. Using these results, participants will be able to create a better, stronger team.

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team assessment and accompanying material is designed for an intact team, and will provide a unique learning experience. To gain the advantage of the single most untapped competitive advantage of teamwork, this program will cover the following:

  • Establishing TRUST with one another
  • Engaging in healthy CONFLICT
  • Making decisions and COMMITTING to actions
  • Holding one another ACCOUNTABLE
  • Focusing on achieving collective RESULTS
  • Understand where the team scores on each of the key components of The Five Behaviors model: trust, conflict, commitment, accountability, and results, and pinpoint where improvement is needed
  • See how each team member’s personality style (based on the DiSC® model, influences his or her approach to each of the five behaviors)
  • Be able to measure the progress of the team and the contribution to the company
  • One-on-one Comparison Reports can be generated between any two members of the team, which gives them focused insight as to how to improve on each of the five behaviors.
  • A Progress Report can be generated a few months after the original program (we recommend 6 to 9 months later), and a one-day facilitated session can help determine go-forward action plans for the team and each individual team member.
  • Workshop evaluation
  • On-line Progress Report within six months of the program, to determine how successful the team has been making learning changes
