The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ Powered by DiSC® process has a simple goal: To create a team experience that helps team members understand how to increase team cohesiveness. The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team harnesses the power of Everything DiSC and the The Five Dysfunctions of a Team model based on Patrick Lencioni’s best-selling book.
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team assessment is a Team 360° that measures performance across the Five Behaviors model. Intended for intact teams and work groups, a benchmark of team cohesiveness provides a foundation for continued performance goals over time.
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team model provides feedback based on five areas of team performance:
Team members that are genuinely transparent and honest with one another are able to build vulnerability-based trust. The willingness to admit mistakes, acknowledge weaknesses, or ask for help is the foundation for building trust.
Mastering Conflict / Healthy Debate
When a team has developed vulnerability-based trust, team members are able to engage in unfiltered, constructive debate of ideas. Conflict is not to be avoided. Rather a well-balanced environment of healthy debate provides teams the opportunity to explore ideas and challenges in an open platform of conversation.
Commit to Decisions
Team members able to offer opinions and debate ideas, are more likely to commit to decisions. Consensus is not needed to gain commitment from the team. Clarity of team vision and buy-in based on an understanding of the vision is what drives teams forward with full team commitment.
Hold One Another Accountable
Once clarity of the vision and buy-in are established, team members will be more willing to hold one another accountable. The core foundation of trust promotes an environment of support and genuine accountability of results.
Focus on Achieving Collective Results
The ultimate goal of building greater trust, conflict, commitment, and accountability is one thing: the achievement of collective results. Alignment in managing individual results within the greater goal of collective results demonstrates a high level of team cohesiveness.
