The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ has a simple goal: To facilitate a learning experience that helps professionals and their organizations discover what it takes to build a truly effective team. It is an assessment-based learning experience that helps individuals and organizations improve team productivity by bringing together everyone’s personalities and preferences to form a cohesive team.  This takes work, but the payoff can be huge—for individuals, the team, and the organization.

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ is supported equally well by two of the most popular assessment tools in use today, Everything DiSC® or  All TYPES®, which is based on Carl Jung’s theory of psychological types, like the MBTI® instrument[1].  Uncover what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team in the most approachable, competent, and effective way possible.

When you bring the The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ to your organization your teams will:

  • 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.

 

“Not finance. Not strategy. Not technology. It is teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is so powerful and so rare.”
