The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team
Introducing Wiley's The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team...a simple, personalized, and proven tool for teams to assess and address the five dysfunctions and build more synergy to get results
How to bring people together to work toward a common purpose? This could be one of the most challenging lessons that leaders must learn. Each person brings his or her own perspectives, pace, and priorities to their work and to a team. Effective leaders harness those differences, along with people’s time and talent, to get the work done!
Your Team Can Do Better
THE FIVE BEHAVIORS OF A COHESIVE TEAM is an assessment-based learning experience that helps individuals and organizations reveal what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team in the most approachable, competent, and effective way possible. Powered by Everything DiSC®, the profiles help participants understand their own DiSC® styles. Bringing together everyone's personalities and preferences to form a cohesive, productive team takes work, but the payoff can be huge—for individuals, the team, and the organization.
Based on the best-selling book The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, by Patrick Lencioni
The Single Most Untapped Competitive Advantage Is Teamwork
Trust One Another: When team members are genuinely transparent and honest with one another, they are able to build vulnerability-based trust.
Engage in Conflict Around Ideas: When there is trust, team members are able to engage in unfiltered, constructive debate of ideas.
Commit to Decisions: When team members are able to offer opinions and debate ideas, they will be more likely to commit to decisions.
Hold One Another Accountable: When everyone is committed to a clear plan of action, they will be more willing to hold one another accountable.
Focus on Achieving Collective Results: The ultimate goal of building greater trust, conflict, commitment, and accountability is one thing: the achievement of results.
What does this program do?
The program helps teams understand how, as a team, they score on the key components of The Five Behaviors model: trust, conflict, commitment, accountability, and results. Each individual on the team will also understand their own personality style and their team members styles, based on the DiSC® model:
D: Dominance, i: Influence, S: Steadiness, and C: Conscientiousness, and how their style contributes to the team’s overall success.
How does it work?
The Five Behaviors Model is used to help team members learn to work together more efficiently and effectively and become a more cohesive team. A productive, high-functioning team:
- Makes better, faster decisions
- Taps into the skills and opinions of all members
- Avoids wasting time and energy on politics, confusion, and destructive conflict
- Avoids wasting time talking about the wrong issues and revisiting the same topics over and over again because of a lack of buy-in
- Creates a competitive advantage
- Is more fun to be on!
