Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team

Why This Assessment

In the modern workplace, our environments are in constant flux. As a result, it can feel downright impossible to develop a truly cohesive team. The truth: teams rarely hit their collaborative peak and potential unconsciously. Even teams producing generally good results may be burdened with disengagement, lack of cohesion, or non-productive conflict.

When your team’s productivity falters, it’s often difficult to pinpoint the source of concern. Even when you spot a few early warning signs before any serious drop in productivity, it’s often tempting to focus on those specific situations or individual interactions instead of addressing the real work of building a great team dynamic from the ground up, the right way. With the right framework, developing and practicing teamwork comes consistently, and relationships thrive—taking your organization to the next level.

Based on the work of Patrick Lencioni’s international best-seller, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, The Five Behaviors® Team Development transforms intact teams through The Five Behaviors model of Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results to drive team effectiveness and productivity. 89% of The Five Behaviors learners say it improved their team’s effectiveness.

This powerful virtual or in-person experience assesses an intact team’s approach to teamwork and helps team members better understand themselves and the personalities on their team so they can effectively achieve their goals. The result is a unique and impactful team development solution that empowers teams to rethink their approach to teamwork, shape new, more productive behaviors to increase productivity, and create a common language that completely redefines what it means to work together.

When team members gain the interpersonal skills needed to understand how they and others contribute to their team’s development and how their part can make or break the team and its dynamic, they can work together.
