The Five Essential Behaviors of Cohesive Team

The Five Essential Behaviors of Cohesive Team

Businesses are looking for people who “fit” well with their teams. In today’s workplace, employees have to learn how to align their personal goals with the team’s goals. Teamwork can help people enjoy their time at work, build positive working relationships, and gain from them both professionally and personally.

However, you don’t build a team like that in a day. It takes a lot of time and persistence for the group dynamics to reach a point of complete understanding and great cohesion.

Due to time constraints, businesses today want to build cohesive teams without spending too much time or energy on it. Training programs for team building are getting more attention, and behavioral tools are getting used more for workplace collaboration. The Five Behaviours of an Inclusive Team is a learning experience based on Patrick Lencioni’s “Five Dysfunctions of a Team”. Five Behaviours of a Cohesive Team is a popular tool that helps individuals understand their own style and the styles of others in their team.

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team

  • Honesty, transparency, and vulnerability build trust.
  • Constructive conflict is only possible when everyone trusts each other.
  • By securing buy-in from every member, regardless of initial disagreements, you can achieve commitment and move the team forward.
  • Be open to feedback from everyone in the team, both positive and negative.
  • Drive results by building trust, commitment, accountability, and healthy conflict.

If everyone can master all five behaviors, then a team becomes highly cohesive and coexists peacefully. It’s used in tandem with the Everything DiSC model, a popular tool for understanding yourself and others.

The Five Behaviours of a Cohesive Team Assessment helps participants understand how well they rate each of the five behaviors above. Team assessment gives a general idea of how teams work and specifics on how each individual can improve in each of these areas.

Information is provided on how their individual behavior impacts the team and how they can improve to make the team more effective. Personalized discussion points and action plans are given to each individual based on their Everything DiSC profile.

Collaboration can be increased by the analysis of how to build trust, indulge in healthy conflicts, become more accountable, become more committed, and get better results.
