Five Behaviours of a Cohesive Team™ is the official training program based on the best-selling book, Five Dysfunctions of a Team and 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 central element of the training program is the DiSC-powered Five Behaviours personal profile, which guides teams towards better engagement and higher performance. The Five Behaviours profile, which provides both individual and team feedback, is grounded in the model described in The Five 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.
Who is the program designed for?

The Five Behaviours 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. For example, 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.
Benefits of our Team Facilitation Programs

This program is highly personalized as your team applies the Five Dysfunctions framework to their own real, demonstrated patterns of behaviour. We adapt our approach to fit your team size, time-line, and progress over the course of the engagement to provide the greatest flexibility for your environment. Plus it is cost-effective as a customized, in-house program delivers more value than external, off-the-shelf training.
