The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ Profile, Powered by DiSC

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ profile, powered by DiSC, is a sophisticated model designed to enhance teamwork and collaboration within organizations. This model blends two powerful methodologies: Patrick Lencioni’s renowned “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team” and insights from the Everything DiSC® assessment tool. These frameworks address both the interpersonal dynamics and individual personality types in teams, leading to more effective and cohesive groups.

The profile emphasizes several critical aspects essential for successful teamwork:

  • Conflict – The model promotes constructive conflict focused on ideas, avoiding personal disputes essential for innovation and optimal solutions.
  • Commitment – It stresses the importance of committing to collective decisions, ensuring alignment with organizational goals.
  • Accountability – Team members hold each other accountable in a supportive manner, crucial for maintaining high standards and performance.
  • Results – The focus is on achieving collective results that reflect the team’s objectives, helping to avoid distractions and loss of focus.
