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.
