Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team®

The single most untapped competitive advantage is teamwork. A productive, high-functioning team:

  • Makes better, faster decisions.
  • Taps into the skills and opinions of all members.
  • Avoids wasting time and energy on politics, confusion, and destructive conflict.
  • Avoids wasting time talking about the wrong issues and revisiting the same topics over and over again because of a lack of buy-in.
  • Creates a competitive advantage.
  • Is more fun to be on!

From Talented Individuals to Extraordinary Teams

What does Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team® do?

The program helps teams understand how they score on the key components of The Five Behaviors™ model: Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results. Individual team members will learn about their own personality style and the styles of their team members—based on the Everything DiSC® model—and how their style contributes to the team’s overall success.

To gain this advantage, teams must:

Trust One Another
When team members are genuinely transparent and honest with one another, they are able to build vulnerability-based trust.
Engage in Conflict Around Ideas
When there is trust, team members are able to engage in unfiltered, constructive debate of ideas.
Commit to Decisions
When team members are able to offer opinions and debate ideas, they will be more likely to commit to decisions.
Hold One Another Accountable
When everyone is committed to a clear plan of action, they will be more willing to hold one another accountable.
Focus on Achieving Collective Results
The ultimate goal of building greater trust, conflict, commitment, and accountability is one thing: the achievement of results.

The Program Includes:

  • Flexible Facilitation: Choose the One-Day Facilitation or Three-Day Facilitation Program
  • Individual Profiles, Participant Handouts, Take-Away Cards and Activities
  • Online Resources and Research Report

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team® is a unique learning experience that prepares individuals for success in teams. The New York Times best-selling author Patrick Lencioni and the power of industry-leading workplace assessment tools come together in a breakthrough program proven to deliver business results.
