What is Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Model?
The single most untapped competitive advantage is teamwork.
To gain this advantage, teams must:
Trust One Another--When team members are genuinely transparent and honest with one another they are able to build vulnerability-based trust.
Engage in Conflict Around Ideas--When there is 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 will be more likely to commit to decisions.
Hold One Another Accountable--Then everyone is committed to a clear plan of action, they will be more willing to hold one another accountable.
Focus on Achieving Collective Results--The ultimate goal of building greater trust, conflict, commitment, and accountability is one thing: the achievement of results.
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team has a simple goal:
To create a 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®, 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.
