Switzer Associates Leadership Solutions was proud to be among the first to offer this new product. Let us introduce you to The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team.
THE FIVE BEHAVIORS OF A COHESIVE TEAM is an assessment-based learning experience that helps individuals and organizations reveal what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team in the most approachable, competent, and effective way possible. Powered by Everything DiSC®, the profiles help participants understand their DiSC® styles. Bringing together everyone’s personalities and preferences to form a cohesive, productive team takes work; but the payoff can be huge—for individuals, the team, and the organization.
Maybe you’ve read The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni. Here’s what Patrick has to say about teams.
To gain this advantage, teams must:
- 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 Accountable
When 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.
