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 organisations 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 learn how, as a team, they score on the key components of the model. Additionally, the program is powered by Everything DiSC®, a model that helps individuals to understand themselves and others better. Using these results, participants are able to create a better, stronger team.


The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team grew out of a decade-long relationship with Patrick Lencioni. During the development process, the program was extensively tested and refined with more than 300 teams and 3,500 team members.


The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team assessment and facilitated learning is designed for an intact team.


The program includes a 36-page highly personalized assessment result for each individual team member and the team with tips and strategies for improving teamwork effectiveness and for building an action plan, and seven facilitated modules from 1 to 3 ½ hours in length.


The modules are:


Module 1: Introduction – Introduces The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Model


Module 2: Building Trust – Teaches the concept of vulnerability-based trust


Module 3: Mastering Conflict – Helps participants understand the benefits of healthy conflict


Module 4: Achieving Commitment – Shows how clarity and buy-in are key to achieving commitment


Module 5: Embracing Accountability – Stresses the importance of peer-to-peer accountability


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 to create an action plan to improve the team’s productivity


Through the use of experiential activities, video, and discussion, a team is led through the powerful The Five Behaviors model, learning and practicing the behaviors that will make the team more cohesive and improve its performance.


“Teamwork ultimately comes down to practicing a small set of principles over a long period of time.” —Patrick Lencioni
