5 Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™

Cohesive teams are the ultimate competitive advantage.  They are the source of the most productivity, creativity collaboration and engagement in an organization.  Building a team climate that facilitates productive emotional experiences allows the team to achieve greater collaboration and performance.

Based on the bestselling book The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni, The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team is a model and development program that guides intact teams through a journey to improve in five areas that are key to productive team dynamics: Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability and Results.


High-performance teams depend on a shared mission, vision and values to align their personal interests, harness their collective expertise and focus their individual efforts. They establish clear roles and responsibilities - plus a framework for making decisions and resolving conflicts. Most important, they commit to an environment of trust.

  • Members of high-performance teams:
  • Demonstrate a blend of professional expertise and personal credibility
  • Hold themselves and each other accountable for the broader impact of their actions
  • Are skillful, candid communicators, balancing advocacy with openness to others’ ideas
  • Manage conflict constructively and maintain team cohesion
  • Trust one another
