The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team

Five Behaviors of a Cohesive TeamThe FIVE BEHAVIORS OF A COHESIVE TEAM™

Teamwork is the single most untapped competitive advantage!
To gain this advantage, teams must trust one another, engage in healthy conflict around ideas, commit to decisions, hold one another accountable, and focus on achieving collective results – these are the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team.

The Five Behaviors assessment report, 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.

Powered by Everything DiSC® or All Types (MBTI®), this program helps improve team effectiveness and productivity in organizations that apply tools based on the DiSC or MBTI as their preferred indicator of behaviors and personality. Team members understand their own Type or DiSC® styles, bringing together everyone’s personalities to form a better, stronger team.

Who is the Program Designed for?
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ is designed exclusively for intact work teams and work groups at all levels of the organization. Through the use of the online-assessment, experiential activities, video, and discussion, an intact team is led through the powerful Five Behaviors model, learning and practicing the behaviors along the way which will make the team more cohesive and improve its performance.

  • Module 6: Focusing on Results – Emphasizes that collective results are more important than individual goals
  • Module 7: Review and Action Plan – Allows participants to review what they’ve learned and create an action plan to improve the team’s effectiveness

Each module builds on the previous one, helping participants see how each behavior serves as a foundation for the next.  Exercises within each module give members an opportunity to begin practicing the behaviors.  Personality Types or DiSC® styles are used as a point of reference throughout, allowing participants to see how their own and their teammates’ types/styles affect their work as a team.

Videos: Pick and choose from a menu of informative, engaging, and memorable videos.  You can use them as standalone footage or integrate them into an existing or customized presentation.  Choose from engaging classroom style video shorts featuring Patrick Lencioni, video reenactments of modern workplace scenarios that most teams will recognize, and videos with additional tips, stories, and guidance to help facilitators better understand the five behaviors and how to work with team leaders.  An optional orientation video is also available for participants to view before taking the assessment. The main facilitation video includes 19 individual segments that are embedded in the PowerPoint presentations (with or without English subtitles).  Video segments include:

  • Introduction to the DiSC® Model: Introduces the All Types or DiSC model.
  • Behavior Definitions: Pat Lencioni describes each of The Five Behaviors and why each one matters for a cohesive team.
  • “Wrong-Way/Right-Way Videos: 10 segments of contemporary teamwork examples—one right way and one wrong way example for each of The Five Behaviors—to spark learning and generate powerful conversations that serve as a basis for further action.

Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Profile

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Assessment Profile

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Assessment Profile

A comprehensive, highly personalized 36-page report that allows each person on the team, and the team as a whole, to understand how they scored on the assessment and how to interpret their individual and team results.  The profile report includes an introduction, a section devoted to each of the five behaviors, a summary of the team’s strengths and challenges, tips and suggestions, and a road-map to help teams create an action plan based on their results.

The online Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team assessment profile includes two types of questions: those designed to determine a person’s Type or DiSC style, and those designed to evaluate how frequently the team engages in the five behaviors.  The responses are integrated into a single, personalized report for each participant that reflects both their individual Type or DiSC style and the team’s composite evaluation of its performance on the five behaviors.  Each person receives a personalized, individual report.

In addition, an Annotated Team Report is included for the facilitator. This is a valuable facilitation tool that can be used in preparation as well as during the session. This report is a copy of the actual team profile that includes scoring interpretation and expanded explanations of profile content.  Additionally, there is an appendix that includes a ranking of all assessment items by team average, the team’s percentile for each of the five behaviors, and benchmark comparison data for all teams who have taken the assessment.

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Assessment Profile can be used as a standalone assessment.
