Achieving the conditions for a team to operate at its best remains as tough as ever. Lively, determined, competent people are always a plus, but bringing a group like that together often involves managing individual ambitions, battles for influence, struggles over limited resources and disputes over target objectives. It isn’t surprising, then, that top performing teams are an ageless business obsession.

Perspectives helps organizations improve team effectiveness and productivity through the understanding and application of The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ - a team development program designed to help the team function as a cohesive unit focused on results. The program helps intact teams develop an enhanced capacity to work together better within the team and, often, within other areas of the organization.

  • Gain The Ultimate Competitive Advantage

    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 best-selling leadership fable The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, this assessment-based program focuses on putting The Five Behaviors™ model of Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results, into practice. By building a foundation of trust, engaging in productive conflict, achieving commitment, and holding team members accountable, teams never lose sight of their collective goals and can achieve their peak performance.

    The program is for intact teams. Not every group is a team. A group that appears to be a team might simply be a collection of people who report to the same manager, but who have relatively little interdependence and mutual accountability. If a group does not meet the criteria of a true team, this process is unlikely to produce the results they expect.

    THE FIVE BEHAVIORS Introduction
  • Measuring Progress

    The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ Progress Report is for teams who have already taken the original The Five Behaviors™ assessment. The Progress Report measures team progress by graphically comparing how a team's performance changed over time.

    The Progress Report highlights areas of greatest improvement and decline, offers productive points of discussion, and provides an action plan to help teams prioritize and set specific goals. You'll be able to compare how a team’s performance has changed over time and highlight areas of greatest improvement and of greatest decline.

    The Progress Report should be used 6–12 months after the initial program implementation. The Progress Report will ideally be discussed in a facilitated follow-up session.

  • Maximizing Individual Relationships

    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 an interpersonal conflict, Comparison Reports can be a great addition to a Five Behaviors program.
