The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team

Lisa Fisher is a certified Five Behaviors practitioner, specializing in The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team program. This assessment-based learning experience is designed to help individuals and organizations uncover the essential elements needed to construct a cohesive and efficient team. Utilizing the framework powered by Everything DiSC®, participants gain insights into their own DiSC® styles, facilitating a deeper understanding of themselves and their team members. By integrating diverse personalities and preferences, teams can forge stronger bonds and enhance productivity. Though it requires effort, the rewards of cultivating a unified team are significant, benefiting individuals, teams, and the organization as a whole.

Establishing trust forms the cornerstone of team cohesion. Vulnerability-based trust, where individuals openly acknowledge weaknesses, is crucial. It fosters genuine connections and collaboration. Efforts like open communication and empathy build this trust. As trust strengthens, teams adapt better and perform at higher levels, unlocking their full potential.

Embracing conflict is crucial for team growth, despite its discomfort. Trust transforms conflict into a force for honesty and bravery. It ensures thorough discussions, diverse perspectives, and informed decision-making. Teams avoiding conflict risk stifling feedback and hindering decisions. Actively engaging in healthy conflict drives innovation and excellence, particularly within a trusting environment.

Commitment within teams goes beyond mere agreement; it signifies a shared understanding and clarity in decision-making. It involves every member fully embracing and aligning with the chosen course of action, even if they had reservations initially. This level of commitment fosters a sense of unity and purpose, empowering the team to face challenges head-on with unwavering determination. It ensures that everyone is invested in the team’s success and contributes wholeheartedly towards achieving common objectives.

Facing tough conversations head-on is crucial for team productivity. By addressing performance or behaviors that could harm the team, members show trust and respect. This willingness to tackle challenges directly fosters accountability and strengthens bonds. Open communication enables identifying issues and implementing solutions effectively, driving continuous improvement and success.

Inattention to results in a team undermines collaboration and breeds competition among members. It often stems from unclear goals and metrics, leading to fragmented efforts and a lack of accountability. This can result in complacency and resistance to change, hindering the team’s ability to adapt and innovate. To overcome this challenge, teams must prioritize collective success, clarify objectives, and hold each member accountable for their contributions.
