Five Behaviours of A Cohesive Team

 

The single most untapped competitive advantage you can have is teamwork. 

“Not finance. Not strategy. Not technology. It is teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is so powerful and so rare.”

-Patrick Lencioni on TEAMWORK

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Model

 

A cohesive teams needs to master the five behaviours listed below. Each behaviour builds on the previous one so behaviours should not be addressed in isolation from each other. A team assessment is available to determine how your team is doing in each of the practices.

 

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.
