  • Overview | The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™

    The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ has a simple goal: To help people discover how to build a truly cohesive and effective team.

    Based on Patrick Lencioni’s internationally best-selling leadership fable The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, this assessment-based program focuses on putting The Five Behaviors™ model into practice.

    Additionally, two versions of the program are available: Powered by Everything DiSC® or All Types™ — two distinct personality models — which help participants better understand how individual personalities contribute to team development. Both are equally valuable in helping teams achieve greater effectiveness and productivity.

    - Establishes Trust between team members
    - Engages in Conflict around ideas
    - Commits to decisions
    - Holds team members Accountable
    - Focuses on achieving collective Results
    - Is more fun to be on!
