In Patrick Lencioni’s groundbreaking book, “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team”, Lencioni describes 5 behaviors that, when exhibited, will lead to a cohesive team that gets things done in an efficient, stress free environment. Those 5 behaviors are:

1- Trust
2- Mastering conflict
3- Achieving commitment
4- Embracing accountability
5 -Focusing on results

Cohesive teams make better, faster decisions. They tap into the skills and opinions of all members. These teams avoid wasting time and energy on politics, confusion and destructive conflict. They create a competitive advantage and are just more fun to be a part of.

Lencioni has developed a simple, straightforward assessment to determine where your team stands in relationship to the 5 behaviors.
