Are you familiar with Patrick Lencioni’s book The Five Dysfunctions Of a Team? If you’re not, in a nutshell it says that the true measure of a team is its ability to accomplish the results it desires to achieve.

It also says that the absence of TRUST, the fear of CONFLICT, the lack of COMMITMENT, an avoidance of ACCOUNTABILITY, and the inattention to RESULTS must be addressed and overcome in order to succeed. These five elements are 5 MUST HAVE Team Behaviors.

The single most untapped competitive advantage is teamwork.

Lencioni and John Wiley and Sons partnered and created The Five Behaviors Of A Cohesive team, an assessment
where team members provide confidential input as to how they feel they, and their team members, are performing in regards to the five “must have” team behaviors.

Results are compiled and each person on the team, and the team as a whole, is provided with their scores, and how to interpret the results. A summary of the strengths and challenges of the team, along with tips, suggestions, and a roadmap for creating an action plan based on the results is also provided.

The PeopleTek team decided to try it out, and wow, were we impressed! So impressed that we became a certified partner allowing us to facilitate the workshops and help teams accomplish the results they desire. By the way, the PeopleTek team was rated a strong performing team, but we did have improvement opportunities and used the action plan to help us become even stronger.

If you have an intact team (one with a common vision and supporting goals, with team interactions and dependencies), we guarantee this tool will make your team more productive and collaborative, and will position you to achieve your desired results.
