Your Team Could Do Better

THE FIVE BEHAVIORS OF A COHESIVE TEAMTM is an assessment-based learning experience that helps individuals and organizations reveal what it takes to build truly cohesive and effective teams in the most approachable, competent, and effective way possible.

pyramidThis program helps teams understand how they score on key components of The Five Behaviors Model. Powered by Everything Disc®, the profiles help participants understand their own DiSC styles, their team members’ styles and how their styles contribute to the team’s overall success.

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.
