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. It is grounded in the model described in “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team”, the internationally best-selling book by Patrick Lencioni.


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.

What Does This Program Do?

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 workgroups. 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. You can see a sample profile here.
