The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ has a simple goal: To help leaders and professionals build cohesive, effective teams; teams that increase the competitive advantage of your organization.

Participants learn how, as a team, they score on the key components of Patrick Lencioni’s ground-breaking model: building trust, mastering conflict, achieving commitment, embracing accountability, and focusing on results.

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ incorporates Everything DiSC® to offer both a team assessment and an individual assessment. This combination of actionable, eye-opening data on the workings both the team and individual enables teams to more quickly identify and address problems.

Who is Five Behaviors Designed For?

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ is designed for an intact team. Before considering this program, remember that not every group is a team. Do members support each other’s roles? Do they structurally work together in an important way that supports the success of an organization or department? 


GrowthSource’s approach is to take a team through three facilitated development sessions, all along applying a client’s specific business challenges to uncover areas of team trust, growth and development. In between each session, team members are responsible for executing specific personal goals to move the team’s effectiveness forward. One-on-one coaching between sessions deepens participant insight, application – and helps ensure accountability for action.


A comprehensive, highly personalized, and accessible 36-page illustrated report that allows each person on the team, and the team as a whole, to understand how they scored on the assessment and how to interpret their individual and team results. The profile includes an introduction, a section devoted to each of the five behaviors, a summary of the team’s strengths and challenges, tips and suggestions, and a roadmap to help teams create an action plan based on their results.

GrowthSource, Inc. is an authorized Partner and Accredited Facilitator of Lencioni’s The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™.

Advanced Accreditation is online!

Facilitator Accreditation is available to individuals within organizations. Accreditation will be granted upon completion of the Wiley on-line course and passing the accompanying exam and is valid for at least two years. The Accreditation process unfolds over five (5) weeks and combines online homework with five facilitated on-line sessions. No need to travel! You will be assigned to a cohort of colleagues with which to share insights and perspectives throughout your Accreditation. 


Your kit includes a USB drive installed with a Facilitator’s Guide, which includes scripted sessions and experiential activities; presentation materials; handouts; PowerPoint slides with 40+ minutes of video; and sample reports to help facilitators prepare for team sessions. Also included are audio podcasts that allow you to listen to insights on each of the five behaviors, the team profile, and the Annotated Team Report.
