Your Five Behaviors Partners - David & Valerie Fosburgh

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team is a powerful assessment and training program for intact teams. Healthy, collaborative teams are grounded in vulnerability-based trust. That trust allows teams to effectively work through inevitable conflict in a healthy and productive way. With trust established and conflict managed, team members are then able to personally commit to the team's goals, share accountability, and celebrate their collective results.

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team is a modular program delivered in 1-day or over multiple days. Accreditation for this program is also available for experienced training and development professionals.

TeamMechanics is based in Central Florida and we travel to organizations throughout the U.S. We also work with global clients through an extensive partner network.

We are personally driven to serve others and help them be the best they can be in their workplaces. Our customers ultimately become our friends. We welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and the honor to call you both customer and friend, too.

  • The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™

    The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Powered by Everything DiSC is an assessment for intact teams that provides both an individual communication assessment and a team cohesiveness assessment in one, easy-to-read report.

    After you and your team take the assessment, you receive a comprehensive, highly personalized, and accessible 36-page illustrated report that allows each person on the team, and the team as a whole, to understand how they scored on the assessment and how to interpret their individual and team results.

    The report includes a summary of the team’s strengths and challenges, tips and suggestions for the team, and a road map to help teams create an action plan based on their results.

    The report uses straightforward, everyday language to help you understand your communication style and also the dynamics of your team regarding the Five Behaviors. It is an excellent starting point for understanding the degree to which your team is effectively working together.
