Overview-Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team

Are you part of a truly cohesive team? As much effort as it takes to build a cohesive team, the process does not have to be complicated. In fact, keeping it simple is critical. Based on the best-selling book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni, this model is designed to provide a clear, concise, and practical guide to improve your team.

Quite simply, a cohesive team needs to master five behaviors: building trust, mastering conflict, achieving commitment, embracing accountability, and focusing on results.

  • Trust One Another: When team members are genuinely transparent and honest with one another, they are able to build vulnerability-based trust.
  • Engage in Conflict Around Ideas: When there is trust, team members are able to engage in unfiltered, constructive debate of ideas.
  • Commit to Decisions: When team members are able to offer opinions and debate ideas, they will be more likely to commit to decisions.
  • Hold One Another AccountableWhen everyone is committed to a clear plan of action, they will be more willing to hold one another accountable.
  • Focus on Achieving Collective Results: The ultimate goal of building greater trust, conflict, commitment, and accountability is one thing: the achievement of results. 

Remember– each behavior builds on the previous one, so the behaviors should not be addressed in isolation of one another.
