Five Behaviors

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ has a simple goal: to facilitate a learning experience that helps organizations discover what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team.

The program is designed to identify the root causes of politics and dysfunction on the teams where you work, and the keys to overcoming them.

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

Typical characteristics of a productive, high-functioning team include:

  • Makes better, faster decisions
  • Are comfortable asking for help, admitting mistakes and limitations and take risks offering feedback
  • 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 again because of a lack of buy-in
  • Creates a competitive advantage
  • Retain the best people
  • Align the team around common objectives
  • Is more fun to be on!

The single most untapped competitive advantage is teamwork.

To gain this advantage, teams must adopt:

Behavior #1: Trust One Another - When team members are genuinely transparent and honest with one another, they are able to build vulnerability-based trust.

Behavior #2: Engage in Conflict around Ideas - When there is trust, team members are able to engage in unfiltered, constructive debate of ideas.

Behavior #3: Commit to Decisions - When team members are able to offer opinions and debate ideas, they will be more likely to commit to decisions.

Behavior #4: Hold One Another Accountable - When everyone is committed to a clear plan of action, they will be more willing to hold one another accountable.

Behavior #5: Focus on Achieving Collective Results - The ultimate goal of building greater trust, conflict, commitment, and accountability is one thing; the achievement of results!
