    When team members are genuinely transparent and honest with one another, it forms a safe environment that creates and builds vulnerability-based trust.
  • Engage in Conflict Around Ideas
    With trust, team members 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 feel heard and respected, and will be more likely to commit to decisions.
  • Hold One Another Accountable
    Once everyone is committed to a clear plan of action, they will be more willing to hold one another accountable.

Behavior Model

Every single one of us has at some point worked on a team. While some of these teams may have been enjoyable, successful, and effective, others may have been difficult, ineffective, or exhausting. While many teams get along well, a united team is where true success lies. The Five Behaviors Model of a Cohesive Team contains pertinent information packed with valuable content that can broaden awareness on how to perform more effectively as a cohesive team.  

The Model’s Behaviors

Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results make up a cohesive team. The model’s behaviors all support and build on one another. Team members can learn how they and the team are doing and how they can work together to become more cohesive by using the team profile and facilitated program. 

  • Trust – Trust sits at the bottom of the pyramid. Without team trust, it will be very difficult to improve overall team cohesion. Building the relationships necessary to be able to resist and even profit from both the typical and particular problems every team experience requires the ability to expose one’s weaknesses, which is a crucial component of vulnerability-based trust  
  • Conflict – Conflict is occasionally viewed as dangerous because it might result in animosity. However, if there is relationship trust inside the team, team members feel confident enough to be brave and honest. Conflict is helpful if there is genuine trust present. In fact, it takes confrontation to make sure that all viewpoints and facets of a subject have been aired, understood, and taken into account. Teams without conflict have a tendency to ignore important feedback, which can result in bad decisions
  • Commitment – The Five Behaviors Model contends that achieving consensus necessitates compromise which frequently leads to good outcomes. Clarity of purpose is necessary for commitment. Consider a situation where there are various solutions. The team choose which idea to pursue with trust and appropriate conflict. Even though only one concept is picked, each team member is aware of the decision-making process and supports the idea when speaking with those inside and outside the group  
  • Accountability – Typically, the hardest skill for a team to grasp is accountability. Most teams won’t ever reach the stage where everyone habitually keeps the others accountable. Accountability will be much simpler if you get and maintain high scores in the earlier steps. Accountability may integrate into the entire dynamic of a team
  • Results – The team exists to accomplish its goals. Each team member is focused on attaining the team’s objective if all previous behaviors are effective. When the team aim takes precedence above any individual goal, everyone feels rewarded for contributing to the success of the group

The Five Behaviors Model is used to teach team members how to collaborate more effectively and efficiently and to grow closer as a unit. This is fantastic for team-building exercises, team growth, and team effectiveness. The five skills necessary for team cohesion are rarely accomplished. The team will cycle between the various behaviors when things change. Change frequently necessitates the team starting all over again and having to rebuild trust, working through each behavior once more.  

Lencioni’s model has been written about by many teams. Teams are assisted in adapting the approach to their own team or teams through the Five Behaviors assessments. It is well worth the effort to create the most harmonious team possible. Participants receive tailored findings from The Five Behaviors Model that improve their comprehension of themselves and other people. They help teams navigate the challenging process of putting together a solid, effective team and its enormous payoff. 

Five Behaviors Assessment

A concept and training program called The Five Behaviors Assessment of a Cohesive Team leads intact teams through the process of improving in five areas that are essential to effective team dynamics. Due to its strength and rarity, teamwork is the ultimate competitive advantage. A team that works well together may realize its potential, which leads to a more wholesome and effective workplace. Beyond simply assisting firms in becoming more effective, strengthening teamwork is a crucial endeavor. Additionally, it lessens the stress and discontent of the employees in those firms, which has a significant effect on their friends’ and families’ life as well.    

Each team member is given a DiSC behavior-style assessment as part of The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team. The findings are plotted on a single graph that displays each team member’s personality and behavioral “style” (Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness). A major factor in how people present themselves and interpret the words and actions of others is their personality and behavioral style. The team as a whole is able to collaborate more successfully by developing a deeper understanding and stronger appreciation of each team member’s style.
