Start your journey to teamwork with the
Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ programme
– powered by Everything DiSC® or All Types™
The Five Behaviors programme utilises workplace personality assessments to help participants understand the personalities on their team and how they can effectively work together.
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.

For whom is the Five Behaviors programme designed for?
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ assessment and accompanying material is designed for an intact team. Before choosing this programme, consider the question: Is the team really a TEAM? A team is a relatively small number of people (from three to twelve) who meet on a regular basis and are collectively responsible for results. The team members share common goals as well as the rewards and responsibilities for achieving them. Not every group is a team. For example, a group that appears to be a team might simply be a collection of people who report to the same manager, but who have relatively little interdependence and mutual accountability. If a group does not meet the criteria of a true team, this process is unlikely to produce the results they expect.
What does the programme include?
- Assessment: 3 sets of questions, full adaptive version of Everything DiSC®, team survey and team culture questions
- Individual Profiles, Team Progress Reports and one-on-one Comparison Reports
- Participant handouts, take-away cards and activities.
What will participants learn?
With this programme, participants will learn how, as a team, they score on the key components of the model: Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability and Results. Additionally, the programme is powered by Everything DiSC® or All Types™, personality models that help individuals understand themselves and others better. Using these results, participants will be able to create a better, stronger team.
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 – Emphasises 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
At the end of the day, the participant has to agree with his or her results. And while most assessments are just tested for internal reliability, the Five Behaviors™ programme takes it a few steps further. Think of test-retest (the stability of the tool), the correlations with other respected instruments, the correlations with outside observer ratings, and the correlations with actual work behavior. It’s a big investment, but it is done because this information is what allows refinement of the assessment and assuring that participants get the most accurate results possible. Getting the assessment right is the very first job.
