Team Building

Building A Strong Team Is Both Possible And Remarkably Simple

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive TeamTM 2 day program 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.
Team members will learn about the DiSC® model of behaviors: D: Dominance, I: Influence, S: Steadiness and C: Conscientious. Each individual on the team will understand their own personality style, their team member's styles, and how they can contribute to the team's overall success.

Session Objectives
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team helps teams understand how 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.

A team functions well beyond coexistence, achieving business results when members learn to master The Five Behaviors:

  • 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 team members build a foundation of vulnerability-based trust, they 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.
