The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ – Personal Development

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team - Personal Development

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ – Personal Development is a half-day workshop based on the work of Patrick Lencioni, author of the international best-seller The Five Dysfunctions of a Team. Lencioni and Wiley have collaborated to bring this DiSC powered program to organizations through their partners.

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive TeamAffinity Consulting and Training, a Canadian organization based in Edmonton, is an Authorized Partner for The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team.

Program Description

The Five Behaviors™ Personal Development solution teaches individuals to become better teammates by integrating Patrick Lencioni’s model at the team and organizational level. This Personal Development version was designed specifically to work for individuals; participants do not all need to be part of the same team. Rather, participants can carry the takeaways of this program from one team to the next, enabling a culture of teamwork. This is particularly suited to new teams and project team launches. Learners at all levels of an organization can benefit from this program and adopt its powerful principles, shape behaviors, and create a common language that empowers people to rewrite what it means to work together.

With this program, participants will learn how, as individuals,  they can support the key components of the model: trust, conflict, commitment, accountability, and results. The program is powered by Everything DiSC®, a model that helps individuals to understand themselves and others better. Using these results, participants will be able to create a better, stronger team.

The Five Behaviors Model Starts with TRUST

Here is Patrick Lencioni talking about Trust, the foundation of the Five Behaviors Model:
