Training content

This program uses team building methods to help teams understand how they score on the key components of The Five Behaviors model: trust, conflict, commitment, accountability and results. Everyone on the team will also understand their own personality style and their team members’ styles, and how their style contributes to the team’s overall success. Learning and practicing the behaviors that will make your team more cohesive and improve its performance.

Module 1

In this introduction, you and your teammates will discuss what you think makes a cohesive team and why it’s valuable. You will then learn about the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team and review the summary of how the team rated itself on the assessment.

Module 2

The session begins with discussing what trust means to your team and identifying trust-related behaviors. You and you teammates will review and discuss your team’s trust scores from the profile, followed by a Personal Histories activity, which gives you an opportunity to get to know one another a little better and practice vulnerability in a safe environment. In the last part of the session, your team will review its assessment of trust-building behaviors and begins the action planning process.

Module 3

This session begins with a quick quiz about conflict concepts, and then your team will review and discuss its assessment results. Next, you will watch a pair of videos and identify the conflict-related behaviors. You and your team members will learn how DiSC style affects conflict approaches and then work with the conflict team map to understand healthy and unhealthy behaviors during conflict. Finally, using what you’ve learned in this module, your team develops an action plan to achieve a productive approach to conflict.

Module 4

In this session, you and your team members are introduced to the concept of commitment and its associated behaviors. Team members will review the team’s commitment scores from the assessment and learn more about clarity and buy-in. The team will develop behavioral ground rules to help drive commitment. The session wraps up with the team continuing to work on its action plan and developing ways to increase commitment.

Module 5

The session begins with team members discussing what accountability means. The team will then watch videos and identify the accountability-related behaviors. Working in small groups, participants will review the team’s accountability scores from the assessment and report out. This is followed by an activity to teach you and your teammates why they’d want to hold one another accountable. The session closes with the team working on an action plan to improve overall accountability.

Module 6

Team members begin by spending a bit of time discussing why a team might not be focused on collective results. Team members then review their own assessment results. Team members participate in the Team Scoreboard activity, in which they learn about and then create a tool to help them track progress toward their goals. Finally, the team reviews its own distractions and works on an action plan to address any shortcomings.

Module 7

Participants begin by reviewing and discussing the team’s strengths and challenges as outlined on the report. Then, working in pairs or small groups, you will review your Action Planning Worksheets and the action-planning notes from previous modules. The entire team then reviews each sub-group’s choices and determines which items to put on its action plan.
