Five Behaviours of a Cohesive Team

Five Behavours of a Cohesive Team is part of the DiSC familiy

Based on a leading work around teams, by Patrick Lencioni, entitled the “Five Dysfunctions of a Team”, and the work of DiSC, a specific product to create better, higher-performing teams has been created.  The facilitation programme works to create greater cohesion in a team through a pyramid model, including Trust, Conflict Management, Commitment, Accountability and Results.


Big Results Training can facilitate your team with assesments (DiSC based) on individuals then blending these with Team Surveys and Team Culture.  Together, using a facilitation and training model, the team profiles and scores are assessed to identify which areas need improvement.

The process involves working on each level, starting at Trust – nothing is achievable without Trust in a team.

The book by Patrick Lencioni

As a formula, it is broken into modules.  Each module is a 1.5-3 hour long session, involving interaction and team working.  The process begins by measuring the current behaviour pyramid so that there is a benchmark in place.   From that we will move straight to Trust, the bedrock and foundation of a cohesive team.

Normally this is all condensed into three solid days for the team. However, this is not always practical, so we can offer this facilitation based on meetings that will work for your business.  Monthly, weekly, etc.

  • Module 1: Introduction & Module 2: Building Trust

  • Module 7: Review. An additional module is added – after 3-6 months, to review team progress and to consider how the team has improved.

The Five Behaviours of a Cohesive Team work doesn’t finish at a few facilitated sessions.  We create a roadmap and follow-ups, with opportunities to measure progress and ensure that everyone is involved and engaged in creating the team cohesion.

Five Behaviours of a cohesive team works with DiSC for best effect, or as a standalone model.  Please call for more information.
