The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team has a simple goal:
To build a truly cohesive and productive team.
According to Patrick Lencioni, there are many reasons why teams struggle -- low trust, unproductive conflict, lack of buy-in, little accountability --- all of which lead to low morale and poor results. The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team is a proven model that helps companies develop teams that are highly focused on their goals and that achieve exceptional results.
The Five Behaviors is designed exclusively for intact teams and work groups at all levels of the organization. Through the use of an online-assessment, experiential activities, engaging video, and focused discussion, your team is led through the powerful Five Behaviors model, learning and practicing the behaviors along the way.

The Five Behaviors™ Team Assessment Profile
This highly personalized 36-page report allows each person on the team, and the team as a whole, to understand how they scored on the assessment and how to interpret their individual and team results. The profile report includes a summary of the team’s strengths and challenges, and a road-map to help the team create an action plan based on their results.
The online Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team assessment includes two types of questions: those designed to determine a person’s Type or DiSC style, and those designed to evaluate how frequently the team engages in the five behaviors. The responses are integrated into a single, personalized report for each participant that reflects both their individual Type or DiSC style and the team’s composite evaluation of its performance on the five behaviors. Each person receives a personalized, individual report.
In addition, an Annotated Team Report is included for the facilitator. This is a valuable tool that the facilitator can use in preparation for and during team sessions. This report is a copy of the actual team profile that includes scoring interpretation and expanded explanations of assessment content.
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Assessment Profile can be used as a standalone assessment.
