The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team


Your Team Can Do Better

THE FIVE BEHAVIORS OF A COHESIVE TEAM is an assessment-based learning experience that helps individuals and organizations reveal what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team in the most approachable, competent, and effective way possible. Powered by Everything DiSC®, the profiles help participants understand their own DiSC® styles. Bringing together everyone’s personalities and preferences to form a cohesive, productive team takes work, but the payoff can be huge—for individuals, the team, and the organization.

The single most untapped competitive advantage is teamwork.

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.

Based on the best-selling book The Five Dysfunctions of a Team

The 5 Behaviours experience helps individuals and teams be more effective

The program helps teams understand how, as a team, they score on the key components of The Five Behaviors model: trust, conflict, commitment, accountability, and results. Each individual on the team will also understand their own personality style and their team members styles, based on the DiSC® model: D: Dominance, i: Influence, S: Steadiness, and C: Conscientiousness, and how their style contributes to the team’s overall success. 

Who is it for?

The program is designed exclusively for intact teams and work groups. The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team harnesses the power of Everything DiSC and the clarity and simplicity of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team model.

How does it work?

The Five Behaviors Model is used to help team members learn to work together more efficiently and effectively and become a more cohesive team. 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!
