What is the five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™?

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team is a unique learning experience that helps people discover what it takes to achieve the ultimate competitive advantage of teamwork. The New York Times best-selling author Patrick Lencioni and the power of industry-leading workplace assessment tools come together in a breakthrough program proven to deliver business results. Invest in your team and start your journey to teamwork today.

A team is a relatively small number of people (from three to twelve) who meet on a regular basis and are collectively responsible for results.  The team members share common goals as well as the rewards and responsibilities for achieving them.  Not every group is a team.  For example, a group that appears to be a team might simply be a collection of people who report to the same manager, but who have relatively little interdependence and mutual accountability.  If a group does not meet the criteria of a true team, this process is unlikely to produce the results they expect.  However, the Alice Dendinger Alliance Group can help employees become great team members by learning the foundation of the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team.

Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team gives organizations an action plan that will improve their teams effectiveness. This program focuses on putting The Five Behaviors model into practice.

Cohesive Teams:

  • Have Trust between team members
  • Engage in Conflict around ideas
  • Commit to decisions
  • Hold team members Accountable
  • Focus on achieving collective Results
  • Are more fun to be on!
