The Five Behaviors Video

 Based on the work of Patrick Lencioni’s international best-seller, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team and Carl Jung’s theory of psychological types, The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Powered by All Types™ helps teams achieve greater effectiveness and productivity and understand how individual personalities and preferences contribute to the team’s overall success. 

Building a cohesive, productive team takes work, but the payoff can be huge—for individuals, the team, and the organization. 

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Powered by All Types™

Overview

Based on the work of Patrick Lencioni’s international best-seller The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team® Powered by Everything DiSC® helps teams apply The Five Behaviors™ model of Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results to drive team effectiveness and productivity. The program uses Everything DiSC, a tool that helps build effective team communication and relationships, to help participants understand their individual DiSC® style and discover how each style brings value to the team.

Who is it for?

Any team that was a good candidate for The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team assessment is qualified to take The Progress Report. You may choose to review the section on assessing a team’s readiness in the Getting Started Guide in your facilitation kit in order to make sure the team is still a good fit.
 

Why should I use this tool? How will it help my team?

“Teamwork ultimately comes down to practicing a small set of principles over a long period of time.” —Patrick Lencioni The Five Behaviors program is a framework that helps team members have deeper conversations about how they work together on a day-to-day basis. It’s a program that is rich enough for a team to come back to again and again. The Progress Report is designed especially to show a team how its behaviors have changed as compared to the last time the team was assessed. In addition to showing the improvements on the team, the report outlines challenges that may be hindering further development. The Annotated (Facilitator) Progress Report will give the facilitator an overview of the team’s data. It also includes facilitation on how to facilitate a Five Behaviors session.
 

What are the best practices for using this tool?

  • Before using this tool, you should give team members enough time to implement the action plans they committed to when they began this process.  
  • Keep in mind, once you run a Progress Report, every report run after that is compared to the previous Progress Report—not the original report.
  • Look at the numbers in addition to the colors in the pyramid to gauge improvement because the colors only tell part of the story. Keep in mind that lower scores don’t necessarily mean things are getting worse; people may be more honest when answering the questions the second time around, which could make some scores go down.
  • Review the model with the team before you hand out the report. As soon as the team members get the report in their hands, they’ll go straight to the numbers, so you’ll want to emphasize that the report is designed to serve as a conversation starter about where the team is and where it wants to be.

When do I use the Progress Report versus starting over?

Periodically check your team’s progress using The Five Behaviors Progress Report. Although, if a team has a new leader, we recommend they re-take the original Five Behaviors assessment. Additionally, if more than 40% of the team has changed since the original assessment was administered, we recommend re-administering the assessment and having the team create new action plans for improvement.
