Mastering the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team

Introducing the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team! This course is a game-changer in improving team collaboration. Built upon Patrick Lencioni's renowned book, "The Five Dysfunctions of a Team," published in 2002, it consistently inspires leaders and organizations globally.

At the heart of effective teams lies a foundation of trust—specifically vulnerability-based trust. This trust allows teams to engage in healthy, productive conflict, make collective decisions, hold one another accountable, and stay focused on delivering exceptional results.

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Model

The Five Behaviors Model may appear simple and intuitive, but within its framework lies the power to revolutionize teamwork. Developed by Wiley in partnership with Patrick Lencioni in 2014, this unique learning experience combines personalized assessment-based learning with expert facilitation to bring the concepts to life.

The impact of The Five Behaviors® has been remarkable. A staggering 88% of participants who have taken part in The Five Behaviors Team Development learning experience report significant improvements in team functionality. This overwhelming evidence attests to the profound influence of this model and learning experience.

The Five Behaviors Model

The Five Behaviors® is a team development solution unlike any other for three core reasons.

A Powerful Model for Effective Teamwork:

The Five Behaviors is built on a robust model that captures the essence of successful teamwork. It addresses the full spectrum of cohesive team behaviors, acknowledging the humanity of each team member and enabling the embrace of shared imperfections. By establishing vulnerability-based trust, this model lays a solid foundation for teams to thrive.

A Personalized Experience:

Your journey with The Five Behaviors® is unique to you. Through personalized insights gained from the Five Behaviors® assessment and personalized report, you will gain a deep understanding of your approach to teamwork. Armed with this knowledge, you can transform personal insights into actionable steps and tangible change.

Beyond Superficiality:

The Five Behaviors® delves beyond superficial fixes. It equips teams with the necessary tools to address specific performance issues and dysfunctional dynamics. This experience empowers intact teams and provides them with a team credo or motto to guide their actions, fostering lasting transformation.

The Five Behaviors Model: What to Expect

A Safer and More Joyful Team Environment:

By implementing The Five Behaviors model, your team will experience a transformation in the workplace atmosphere. Team members will feel safer to express their ideas, and concerns, and even take calculated risks without fear of retribution. This openness fosters a joyful environment where creativity and innovation thrive. When individuals are comfortable being themselves, they’re more likely to collaborate effectively and contribute to the team’s success.

Increased Employee Engagement:

The Five Behaviors framework cultivates engagement by promoting active participation from each team member. As trust and transparency grow, employees feel more connected to the team’s purpose and mission. This connection drives a sense of ownership and responsibility, making them more engaged in their work. Engaged employees are motivated to go the extra mile, leading to improved productivity, higher quality output, and an overall positive impact on the organization.

Heightened Trust Between Team Members:

Trust is the foundation of a cohesive team. Through The Five Behaviors® approach, team members learn to communicate openly, provide constructive feedback, and support each other’s growth. As these behaviours become ingrained, trust naturally develops and deepens. With trust in place, conflicts are managed more effectively, collaboration becomes seamless, and decisions are made collectively. This elevated trust strengthens relationships and ultimately boosts team performance.

Enhanced Commitment to Team Goals:

When team members embrace The Five Behaviors, they align their individual goals with the team’s overarching objectives. This alignment drives a shared sense of purpose and commitment. As individuals recognize their roles in achieving collective success, they become more invested in the team’s goals and work together with determination to accomplish them. This united effort leads to increased efficiency and a higher likelihood of accomplishing ambitious targets.

Greater Self-Awareness:

The Five Behaviors model encourages self-reflection and personal growth. Team members gain insights into their strengths and areas for improvement, leading to greater self-awareness. Armed with this knowledge, individuals can tailor their contributions to align with their strengths, while also proactively addressing any limitations. This increased self-awareness not only benefits the team dynamics but also promotes individual development and long-term career growth.

How the Five Behaviours Model Can Help You Achieve Your Goals

The Five Behaviors® solutions can help you activate your team’s ability to drive results through cohesive teamwork, whether it is with our Personal Development solution, which helps individuals learn the skills they need to “team” effectively on any team and build a culture of teamwork or our Team Development solution which helps intact teams gain the know-how to work better together.
