Five Behaviors Team Development
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team, based on Patrick Lencioni’s best selling book The Five Dysfunctions of a Team has a simple goal: to create a learning experience that helps individuals and organizations discover what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team. Two versions of the program are available: Powered by Everything DiSC® or Powered by All Types™ — two distinct personality models — which help participants better understand how individual personalities contribute to team development.
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ Powered by All Types™ is designed exclusively for teams within organizations that apply tools based on Jung’s theory of psychological types, like the MBTI® instrument, as their preferred indicator of personality.
Both versions are equally valuable in helping teams achieve greater effectiveness and productivity. Team data is combined with the assessment to help the participants link team behavior with style preferences and priorities. Free assistance, deep experience available to help you set up an effective change management experience. Sue Hammond is an accredited Five Behavior Facilitator and is available to coach you through the process. Contact Sue for more information.

- Powered by Everything DiSC® - Based on DiSC behavioral styles
- Powered by All Types™ - Based on Jungian types, MBTI® compatible
How the Profile Works
- This program is designed for intact teams, ideally less than 12 members. The team should have common goals and are mutually responsible for achieving them.
- Each team member will complete an online assessment about the team and an Everything DiSC® or All Types™ profile. Once everyone on the team has completed their assessment, all the reports are generated. Each member then receives their personalized report with the team data, the implications of their DiSC style on each Behavior and how best to approach the other styles.
- Download Sample Profile: Powered by Everything DiSC® - Based on DiSC behavioral styles Powered by All Types™ - Based on Jungian types, MBTI® compatible
- You pay for the team member’s reports and receive the Annotated Team Report for free. The Annotated Team Report guides a Facilitator through the team results. It includes norms of over 5000 teams and an appendix of the questions in rank order and percentiles of the team’s scores.

Five Behaviors Comparison Reports
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Comparison Reports are follow-up reports that can be created for any two participants to illustrate their similarities and differences. Based on data from the personality items in The Five Behaviors assessment, the reports are organized around The Five Behaviors model and illustrate two continua per behavior. The research-validated comparison reports can be used to continue to instill The Five Behaviors model and language and to emphasize the importance of the behaviors for both individual relationships and team functioning.
Why use Comparison Reports with a team product?
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ program is designed to help teams become more efficient and effective. But, of course, teams are made up of individuals, so one-on-one relationships can have a big impact on a team as a whole. Comparison Reports are a great tool to use to help team members learn more about one another and improve their individual relationships and, by extension, their ability to work together. Whether introducing new teammates, helping to build rapport, or working to resolve an interpersonal conflict, Comparison Reports can be a great addition to a Five Behaviors program.
How can I use the Comparison Reports?
There are a number of ways to incorporate Comparison Reports into your programs, depending on the team and its needs:
- During a workshop: At the end of each module, assign pairs and give participants the page from the Comparison Report that corresponds to that module’s behavior. Allow time for the pairs to work through the page. This will both deepen their understanding of the behavior and help to build interpersonal relationships. You could elect to use the same pairs for each module or switch them up each time. EPIC will allow you to print Comparison Reports for all possible team member combinations.
- In between sessions: If you’re facilitating The Five Behaviors over multiple sessions, you could use the Comparison Report as homework. Assign pairs, have the participants meet in between sessions to discuss their Comparison Reports, and ask them to prepare to share their findings and experience during the next session.
- For new team member(s): To help a new team member get acclimated more quickly, have that person go through a Comparison Report with each team member one-on-one. The new team member will get a chance to learn more about his or her new colleagues and how they might best work together while also being exposed to The Five Behaviors model and language.
- In conflict situations: If the conflict between two team members is affecting the team, the Comparison Report can be used to help them examine why they may be having difficulty working together and explore ways in which they might resolve their issue(s). Depending on the nature/severity of the conflict, the two members could work one-on-one, or you could facilitate the conversation.
- As a follow-up/reminder: Comparison Reports can be used as part of team meetings (for example, team members could meet in pairs for 10 minutes during the meeting to review their reports) or as part of a more formal follow-up to a Five Behaviors program. In either case, the report can be used to continue to instill The Five Behaviors model and language and to emphasize the importance of the behaviors for both individual relationships and team functioning.

Nothing Beats Experience, But This Comes Close
As a facilitator, you can influence whether a team sees an uncomfortable moment through or misses out on the opportunity to grow. The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ is different. Sessions can get heated. Participants can become emotional. The team leader can be defensive. Timelines and scripts can get thrown out the window. You’re in a position to influence whether a team sees an uncomfortable moment through or misses out on the opportunity to grow. The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Online Facilitator Accreditation will help you hone your instincts for when to stick to the agenda and when to improvise, when to let a debate play out and when to cut it short.
This is an online course combining a weekly live class with online modules. I recently participated in the beta test of this and thought it was very well done.
