  • Team Reports

    The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ program is designed to help teams become more efficient and effective. But, of course, teams are made up of individuals, so one-on-one relationships can have a big impact on a team as a whole. Comparison Reports are a great tool to use to help team members learn more about one another and improve their individual relationships and, by extension, their ability to work together. Based on data from the personality items in The Five Behaviors assessment, the reports are organized around The Five Behaviors model and illustrate two continua per behavior. Whether
    introducing new teammates, helping to build rapport, or working to resolve interpersonal conflict,
    Comparison Reports can be a great addition to a Five Behaviors program.

  • Progress Reports

    The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ Progress Report shows how a team’s performance has changed over time and highlights areas of greatest improvement and greatest decline. It includes the Team Survey Results, Points of Discussion, a Conflict Team Map, an Action Plan that helps the team set goals and identify areas for improvement, and personalized information for each team member. The report, which is included with the purchase of the initial Five Behaviors profile, is created based on a brief follow-up assessment administered to the team after the original Five Behaviors engagement.
