Products - The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™

Teamwork - The single most untapped competitive advantage.


The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ has a simple goal:

To facilitate a learning experience that helps professionals and their organizations discover what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team. The Five Behaviors profile, which provides both individual and team feedback, is grounded in the model described in The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team, the internationally best-selling leadership fable by Patrick Lencioni.

With this program, participants will learn how, as a team,  they score on the key components of the model: trust, conflict, commitment, accountability, and results. Additionally, the program is powered by Everything DiSC®, a model that helps individuals to understand themselves and others better. Using these results, participants will be able to create a better, stronger team.

We use experiential activities, videos, and discussions to work with your team to lead them through the powerful The 5 Behaviors of a Cohesive Team model where they will be learning and practicing the behaviors that will make the team more cohesive and improve its performance.

Who is the Program Designed For?


The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team assessment and accompanying material is designed for an intact team. Before choosing this program, consider the questions: Is the team really a TEAM? A team is a relatively small number of people (from three to twelve) who meet on a regular basis and are collectively responsible for results. The team members share common goals as well as the rewards and responsibilities for achieving them. Not every group is a team.
