The single most untapped competitive advantage is Teamwork. The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team has a simple goal: To create a 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. 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 based on Patrick Lencioni’s best-selling book.
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team assessment is a Team 360° that measures performance across the Five Behaviors model.
When team members are genuinely transparent and honest with one another, they are able to build vulnerability-based trust.
Mastering Conflict / Healthy Debate
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.
The Five Behaviors can be mistakenly interpreted as five distinct issues that can be addressed in isolation of one another. But in reality they form an interrelated model, and neglecting even one of the behaviors can be potentially harmful to the success of the team.
The Five Behaviors Experience
The program is a deep dialogue experience where team members engage in authentic discussion driven by team assessment results. Corporate Teams facilitates a process that provides a platform for open communication and dialogue of team challenges. The result is a productive and high-functioning team that is able to drive hard-hitting discussion into actionable steps to:
- Make better, faster decisions
- Tap into the skills and opinions of all team members
- Avoid wasting time and energy on politics, confusion, and destructive conflict
- Eliminate discussions about the wrong issues and revisiting the same topics over and over again because of lack of buy-in
- Create a competitive advantage
- Increase the engagement of the team to drive results
Measure Team Results
