Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team

Who wants a Dysfunction?!

Patrick Lencioni’s best-seller, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, has revolutionized the way leaders look at their teams. Simple to understand (and complex to integrate), Lencioni has worked over the years to refine and develop the material to help teams best transform their teams. Rather than focus on the dysfunction, Lencioni has flipped the thinking to transform each dysfunction into a cohesive behavior. So this work is all now referred to as the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team. Much better!

Our Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team program involves several phases of work, over time:

  1. Discovery Process: interviewing your leader and team members to uncover the core issues for your team
  2. Assessment: Proven Five Behaviors™ assessment administered to your team
  3. Offsite: debrief the assessment results and create a team action plan
  4. Ongoing Support: through coaching, offsite or whatever your team needs, we help you integrate and live the Five Behaviors

We bring the Five Behaviors to life for your team, from wherever they start. 

This work transforms the effectiveness of teams and what it feels like to be on the team.

What Our Clients Say

“Thank you for the difference you and your team have made in our company. You’ve had a huge impact on how we operate and how we talk to people.” – VP of HR

So Why Are Most Teams Not Great?

Because it takes understanding what MAKES them great, and a lot of practice on those things, to get them there. And most teams won’t do the work.

That leaves them struggling with the same issues repeatedly, and team members are either frustrated or resigned.

But for those interested in transforming their teams, in creating an engaging, trusting and impactful culture, on a team that is nimble and gets results, working with the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team is the quickest way we know to get you there.

You know you’ve seen it: The Five Dysfunctions of a Team is available in any airport you’ve been in over the past 18 years. Well, there’s a reason it’s one of the most popular business books out there! Because teams are essential to an effective workplace, and we all hate being on teams that aren’t functioning well.


Here’s it’s author, Patrick Lencioni, talking about the importance of teams:
