The Five Behaviours of a Cohesive Team™ has a simple goal: To facilitate a learning experience that helps professionals and their organisations discover what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team. 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. 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 with Everything DiSC® profiling “INSIDE” the Five Behaviours profile experience, leveraging the powerful Wiley/Lencioni Team assessment, alongside the Everything DiSC assessment. These are two complementary models that helps individuals and the team to understand themselves and others better as cohesive team members. It creates very important conversations in the room for the team and its leaders. This process has had powerful impacts on teams across the world in the last few years.
A Results Driven Session through building trust.
The Five Behaviours™ session also helps leaders in the team to step back and create an environment where teams achieve key results overcoming the obstacles that are holding their progress back. Five Behaviours and the diagnostics provided clearly allows the team members to articulate what is holding the team back. The de-briefing and facilitation engages all of the team (the leaders & team members) in becoming more clear, focused, committed and cohesive!
The situation may be that you have a team that has become under-performing, or that the issues that are holding the team back aren’t being dealt with in a healthy manner. Five behaviours will also help overcome many of the obstacles that are proving difficult to resolve or possibly have caused a dysfunction in the team itself.
The Five Behaviours of a Cohesive Team grew out of a decade-long relationship with Patrick Lencioni and his colleagues. During the development process, the Publisher Wiley extensively tested and refined the program with more than 300 teams and 3,500 team members. This is highly valid learning & result oriented development for teams.
Who is the programme designed for?
The Five Behaviours™ of a Cohesive Team assessment and accompanying material is designed for an intact team. All teams face challenges at various stages of their development when executing on tough challenges or targets.
This includes reflecting on their culture and team identity and on how clear and aligned they are to their strategy & goals. Considering dynamics and events that affect the team, moving beyond healthy scepticism, getting clarity on roles, responsibilities, key processes are some issues that a team may need to encounter and overcome.
Five Behaviours is professionally facilitated by Performance Partners’, Peter O’Connor, who has over 20 years industry experience. The programme is used by medium sized business teams and large corporate teams such as Microsoft who we worked with recently, see video below for case study.
Before choosing The Five Behaviours™ programme, please consider this question:
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.
