Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ 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 Five Behaviors™ 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

JER HR Group has partnered with Wiley in using FIVE BEHAVIORS OF A COHESIVE TEAM for our clients.  Our coaching and leadership team uses the tool to analyze the current team cohesiveness and builds leadership/coaching program around team’s requirements.

JER HR Group is also an authorized reseller of Everything DiSC® .  We also have leadership development professional with extensive experience in leveraging Disc. As program is powered by Everything DiSC® and All Types™, personality models that help individuals understand themselves and others better, we use these results and help participants will be able to create a better, stronger team.

We can facilitate The Five Behaviors Model with your team as a one, two, or three-day event. This model’s purpose is to help team members learn to work together more efficiently and effectively and to become a more cohesive team.

A productive, high-functioning team has a lot of upside:

  • 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 because of a lack of buy-in
  • creates competitive advantage
  • is more fun to be on!

Participants will come out of the training not just with a knowledge of the model and of how the team is currently performing (based on the assessment), but also with specific plans to improve that performance.

Bringing together everyone’s personalities and preferences to form a cohesive, productive team takes work, but the payoff can be huge--for individuals, for the team, and for the organization.
