Five obstacles to successful cooperation

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ has a clear goal: to help people discover how to build a truly cohesive and effective team.

A unique learning experience that prepares individuals to succeed in a team.

Based on Patrick Lencioni's internationally best-selling book "The Five Dysfunctions of a Team", this programme, supported by individual assessments, is about putting the Five Behaviours into practice.

The program is available in two different versions: one version uses DiSC behavioural styles based on the Everything DiSC model, while the other uses the MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator), i.e. the personality types defined by C.G.Jung.

The programme helps participants to better understand how individual personalities contribute to the development of the team. Both are equally valuable in achieving greater efficiency and effectiveness in teams.

Team members in a productive, well-functioning team:

• - There is strong trust between them
• They are able to confront each other effectively because of different ideas and opinions
• They commit to decisions
• They hold each other accountable
• They focus on achieving common results
• They enjoy being part of a team!

About the programme

Get started on the path to true teamwork with the "Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™".

The Five Behaviours programme uses workplace personality assessments to help participants understand the different personalities in their teams and how they can work together effectively.

The goal of the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ program is simple: to provide a learning experience that helps professionals and organizations discover what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team. The Five Behaviours Profile, which provides feedback at both the individual and team level, is based on the model described in the leadership story "You Need a Team", or "The Five Dysfunctions of Teams", written by Patrick Lencioni, which has become an international bestseller.

Who is the Five Behaviours™ programme for?

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ survey and accompanying programme is designed for another team working together. Before you choose this program, think about the question: Is this team really a TEAM? A team is a relatively small group (from 3 to 12 people) that meets regularly and is collectively responsible for results. Team members share common goals and the rewards and responsibilities for achieving them. Not all groups are teams. For example, a group that appears to be a team may simply be a collection of people who report to the same leader but have relatively little interdependence and little mutual accountability to each other. If a group does not meet the criteria of a true team, then this programme is unlikely to produce the expected results.


• Survey: three groups of questions: one on the personality type of the individual (optionally based on Everything DiSC® or MBTI), a team assessment and team culture questions.
• Individual profiles, team development reports and comparative reports between individuals
• - Participant materials, take-away cards and exercises.


During the programme, participants will learn how to strengthen the application of key components of the model as a team, such as Trust, Conflict Management, Commitment, Accountability and Achieving Results. In addition, the program uses the Everything DiSC® or All Types™ (MBTI) personality models to help individuals better understand themselves and others. Using these results, participants will be able to create a better, stronger team.


At the end of the day, it is essential that participants agree on their results. And while most questionnaires only test internal reliability, the Five Behaviours™ programme goes a few steps further. Think test-retest (which measures the reliability of psychological tools), correlations with other recognised tests, correlations with external observer ratings and correlations with actual work behaviour.

The Five Behaviours™ model

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ is a unique learning experience that helps people discover what it takes to achieve an outstanding competitive advantage in teamwork.

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ powered by Everything DiSC® helps teams apply the five behaviors of Trust, Conflict Management, Commitment, Accountability and Achieving Results to increase team effectiveness and efficiency.

The program uses the Everything DiSC® or MBTI Personality Model to help build effective team communication and relationships so that participants understand their individual style-type and discover how each style adds value to the team.


Productive individuals thrive in teams based on trust - the foundation of The Five Behaviours™ model. In this program, teams discover how to view vulnerability as an opportunity to strengthen relationships among teammates.


The Five Behaviours™ model views engagement as the existence of clear and unambiguous decisions and the full support of team members. Teams that achieve engagement use a common language to have healthy discussions and make decisions, even if not everyone initially agrees.


When teams are built on pillars of trust based on vulnerability, team members feel safe enough to initiate and manage productive conflicts focused on ideas and ideas. These conflicts become a means of discussing different points of view and finding the best possible solution.


Teams that perform well set themselves high standards. Holding team members accountable for their tasks helps build respect among peers and guides the team to meet expectations.


The goal of every team is to achieve results. By establishing trust, productive conflict, achieving commitment and holding team members mutually accountable, teams never lose sight of their common goals and can achieve peak performance.

Individual Development

Building and strengthening skills beyond teams

The Five Behaviours™ personal development programme teaches individuals how to become better team players by integrating Patrick Lencioni's model throughout the organisation. The goal is to completely redefine teamwork and collaboration.

This part of the programme is not for teams but for individuals, the personal development included is specifically designed for individuals; participants do not need to be part of the same team. Instead, participants can transfer the lessons learned from the programme from one team to another, enabling a culture of teamwork to be fostered. Participants at all levels of the organisation can benefit from this programme and take on board its powerful principles, shape patterns of behaviour and create a common language that empowers people to rewrite what it means to work together. The programme will help participants better understand how individual personalities contribute to team development. Both are equally valuable in helping teams achieve greater efficiency and effectiveness.

The Need for Individual Personal Development
In today's organisations, people no longer work within rigid teams that remain unchanged for long periods of time. Technological developments are disrupting the market from time to time, globalisation is forcing new ways of working, and the teams of the future will face unprecedented complexity. In essence, organisations need to equip their employees to quickly build cohesive and collaborative teams to achieve results. In the case of the individual programme, the idea was to create a model that harnesses the power of the Five Operational Disorders developed by Patrick Lencioni and tailors it to the needs of the individual, who can then take the key lessons with them and pass them on to others in the organisation.

How does the Five Behaviours™ Personality Development Method work?

It helps individuals to better understand, process and apply the principles of the "Five Behaviors of the Cohesive Team™" model and facilitates communication throughout the organization.

It is designed to be applicable to a wide range of participants, regardless of how well they know each other.
