Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships. Michael Jordan
Teams are important everywhere – in sports, in politics and in organizations! People don’t work in silos – even individual contributors are part of a larger team that has common goals and regular interactions with each other.
Millions of dollars and numerous hours of training are spent every year by organizations to attain the elusive “teamwork”. Much has been written about teamwork. People attend “fun” team-building sessions with exciting games and come back to work pumped up to become team players. But how long does the learning last? In most cases after a couple of weeks all people remember is the great outdoor location or a really fun game they played!
Clearly teamwork is not only critical but also hard-work. Working together as cohesive teams does not come easily – with different personalities, sometimes conflicting goals and shortage of time to really feel part of team – teamwork remains an elusive concept for most teams even today.
So is there a way to create real change in attitude towards teamwork and create truly cohesive teams?
With The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team assessment based team intervention creating cohesive teams is not just possible but simple.
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team model, brings together the ground-breaking work in teamwork by Patrcik Lencioni and the world leaders in behavioural assessments – Everything DiSC by Wiley.
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team program, addresses the five tenets of teamwork – Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability and Results. Without vulnerability based trust in team there can be no productive conflict around ideas. Debating ideas and reaching a decision will make the team members commit to the decisions and they feel comfortable holding each other accountable and finally this will lead to achieving results or common goals. The profile goes a step further and describes the impact of the behavioural styles of the team members on the group processes, how they handle trust, conflict, commitment, accountability and results.
This comprehensive solution breaks down many myths about teams and teamwork and can sustain the leaning journey over time to result in truly cohesive teams.

THE FIVE BEHAVIORS OF A COHESIVE TEAM
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. Powered by Everything DiSC®, the profiles help participants understand their own DiSC® styles. 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.
To gain this advantage, teams must:
1. Trust One Another
When team members are genuinely transparent and honest with one another, they are able to build vulnerability-based trust.
2. Engage in Conflict Around Ideas
When there is trust, team members are able to engage in unfiltered, constructive debate of ideas.
3. Commit to Decisions
When team members are able to offer opinions and debate ideas, they will be more likely to commit to decisions.
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.
5. Focus on Achieving Collective Results
The ultimate goal of building greater trust, conflict, commitment, and accountability is one thing: the achievement of results.
The single most untapped competitive advantage is teamwork.
