Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent ICS and PCN The Five Behaviors® of a Cohesive Team Programme

The Five Behaviors® of a Cohesive Team (Patrick Lencioni and Wiley/Inscape) Programme (programme) empowers teams to rethink their approach to teamwork and shape new behaviors in the workplace taking teams and organisation to the next level.


The programme content covers the following learning and development elements:

  • Self-discovery and getting to know each other better powered by DiSC.
  •  Introduction to The Five Behaviors® of a Cohesive Team Model.
  • Trust One Another – When team members are genuinely transparent and honest with one another, they are able to build vulnerability-based trust.
  • Engage in Conflict Around Ideas – When there is trust, team members are able to engage in unfiltered, constructive debate of ideas.
  • Commit to Decisions – When team members are able to offer opinions and debate ideas, they will be more likely to commit to decisions.
  • Hold One Another Accountable – When everyone is committed to a clear plan of action, they will be more willing to hold one another accountable.
  • Focus on Achieving Collective Results – The ultimate goal of building greater trust, conflict, commitment, and accountability is one thing: the achievement of results.
  •  Shared team goals and behavior improvement to connect better together.
  • Practice reflection as a team and individually.


Programme face-to-face facilitation approach 

This face-to-face programme for takes a facilitation approach whereby an Enono associate will discover with a team how they can work more effectively and cohesively together.

Can any team participate in the programme?

Enono has specially designed The Five Behaviors® programme for between 4 to 8 people on a team that have been working relatively well together for approx. 1 year.

All the team members should be willing to:

  • engage in the programme
  • learn the power to self-reflect and team reflect
  • consider their own behaviors (good self and when in overdrive) and how other team members see and feel them
  • talk openly about their and other team members behaviors in a honest and safe environment
  • commit to change the way they work and how they connect with their team members
  • sustain new positive behavior changes.


Is this programme suitable for a team in unhealthy conflict?

This programme has not been designed for teams who are in unhealthy conflict. If a team is working in unhealthy conflict and basically not getting on, Enono can offer an alternative programme once a needs assessment and analysis of the team has been undertaken.

The power of we and healthy workplace cultures 

The programme facilitator will encourage the programme participants to rise to the challenge of working better together to aid the “power of we” and not “I”, to approve the workplace culture of the organisation. If this happens during the programme delivery, the programme learning, development and impact outcomes are outstanding!

Self-assessment and profiles

Programme participants will be asked to complete a self-assessment (it takes approx. 20 to 30 minutes to complete) in advance of the programme day 1 start date in order to have access to The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Profile. DiSC is woven into each of the programme sessions.


In the first part of the assessment, each programme participant is answering DiSC questions. The second part of the assessment is a team survey. This includes 20 statements and asks the participant how often the statement is true of his or her team. For instance, one item is, “The team is clear about its overall direction and priorities.” Almost always? Usually? Sometimes? Rarely? Never? It’s a five-point scale, and the responses are anonymous. The responses will, however, be reported in aggregate in the profile. And then, finally, the third part involves the team culture questions. These are broad questions that ask about various aspects of the team culture and how it can be improved. For instance, one question is, “What can the team do differently to build more trust?” Another one is, “What are some of the things that are keeping us from focusing on results?”

What is DiSC?

As the world’s most popular behavioral assessment, DiSC offers a simple solution with profound results. This assessment measures and provides insight into four primary behavioral tendencies and emotions and explores how these come together in a personal blend of style to create our DiSC style. DiSC reveals how a person will most likely behave within a given environment, situation, or relationship. It offers prescriptive lessons designed to highlight and maximise self-awareness, intentionality, and interpersonal communication, personally and professionally.

DiSC is a simple, practical, easy to remember and universally applicable model. It focuses on individual patterns of external, observable behaviors and measures the intensity of characteristics using scales of directness and openness for each of the four styles:

  • D – Dominance: Direct and Guarded, Fast-paced and Task-oriented, Focuses on Problems & Challenges, Assertive
  • I – Influence: Direct and Open, Fast-paced and People-oriented, Focuses on People & Contacts, Persuasive
  • S – Steadiness: Indirect and Open, Slow-paced and People-oriented, Focuses on Pace & Consistency, Supportive
  • C- Conscientious: Indirect and Guarded, Slow-paced and Task-oriented, Focuses on Procedures & Constraints, Analytical
