We accomplish this by developing and maintaining a deep understanding of the market and competitive landscape from the customer’s perspective and continually include customers, their clients, and our authors in our product design and development process. We believe that this unique commitment to product development and customer engagement is absolutely essential to helping our customers build and develop their business. We support all of these efforts by focusing on the four crucial pillars of our market: our products, our platform (EPIC), our partners, and our brand. Highly respected, global Wiley WLS brands include Everything DiSC®, The Leadership Challenge® by best-selling authors Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, and The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team by best-selling author Patrick Lencioni.
Customer-Centric Product Development 

We like to think that our product development process is the secret to our success. We research, we storyboard, we build a full working prototype, we get extensive workshop feedback (from actual participants going through a program), and then… we start over again. And for each product, we do this until we get it right. It’s hard, but we do this because it’s the only way to ensure that the learner experience is as powerful as it can be. We are radically customer-focused every step of the way.

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team grew out of a decade-long relationship with Patrick Lencioni and his colleagues at The Table Group. During our development process, we extensively tested and refined the program with more than 300 teams and 3,500 team members.
Assessment Validation

At the end of the day, the participant has to agree with his or her results. And while most assessments in our industry are just tested for internal reliability, we take it a few steps further. We look at things like test-retest (the stability of the tool), the correlations with other respected instruments, the correlations with outside observer ratings, and the correlations with actual work behavior. It’s a big investment, but we do it because this information is what allows us to refine the assessment and make sure we are getting the participant the most accurate results possible. Getting the assessment right is our very first job.
Who is the program designed for?

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ assessment and accompanying material is designed for an intact team. Before choosing this program, consider the questions: Is the team really a TEAM? A team is a relatively small number of people (from three to twelve) who meet on a regular basis and are collectively responsible for results. The team members share common goals as well as the rewards and responsibilities for achieving them. Not every group is a team. For example, a group that appears to be a team might simply be a collection of people who report to the same manager, but who have relatively little interdependence and mutual accountability. If a group does not meet the criteria of a true team, this process is unlikely to produce the results they expect.  
Trust One Another

Members of great teams trust one another on a fundamental, emotional level, and they are comfortable being vulnerable with each other about their weaknesses, mistakes, fears, and behaviors. They get to a point at which they can be completely open with one another, without filters.

Engage in Conflict Around Ideas

Members of teams who trust one another are not afraid to engage in conflict around ideas that are key to the organization’s success. They do not hesitate to disagree with, challenge, and question each other, all in the spirit of finding the best answers, discovering the truth, and making great decisions.

Committment to Decisions

Teams that engage in conflict around ideas are able to gain commitment to decisions, even when various members of the team initially disagree. That is because they ensure that all opinions and ideas are put on the table and considered, giving confidence to team members that no stone has been left unturned.

Hold One Another Accountable

Teams that gain commitment to decisions and standards of performance do not hesitate to hold one another accountable for adhering to those decisions and standards. What’s more, they don’t rely on the team leader as the primary source of accountability; they go directly to their peers.

Focus on Achieving Collective Results

Team members who trust one another, engage in conflict around ideas, gain commitment to decisions, and hold one another accountable are more likely to set aside their individual needs and agendas and focus on achieving collective results. They do not give in to the temptation to place their departments, career aspirations, or ego-driven status ahead of the collective results that define team success.

The single most untapped competitive advantage is teamwork!
Teamwork is the ultimate competitive advantage, because it is both so powerful and so rare. 
By mastering the key Five Behaviors, teams are able to...

  • Be more effective and efficient
  • Make better, faster decisions
  • Tap into the skills and opinions of all members
  • Avoid wasting time and energy on politics, confusion and destructive conflict
  • Work together with greater levels of respect
  • Create a competitive advantage
  • Have more fun while being more productive
Genuine teamwork remains as elsive as it's ever been!
Teamwork is the single-most untapped competitive advantage in today’s professional world. But the process of building effective teams doesn’t need to be complicated – in fact, keeping it simple is crucial. The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ is an assessment-driven learning experience for strengthening the effectiveness of intact teams. Powered by Everything DiSC® using Peter Lencioni’s The Five Dysfunctions of a Team proven model, the assessment and personalized profile provide both individual and team feedback.
The Five Behaviors profile, which provides both individual and team feedback, is grounded in the model described in The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, the internationally best-selling leadership fable by Patrick Lencioni. With this program, participants will learn how, as a team, they score on the key components of the model: trust, conflict, commitment, accountability, and results. Additionally, the program is powered by Everything DiSC®, a model that helps individuals to understand themselves and others better. Using these results, participants will be able to create a better, stronger team
Based on the
best-seller book
What does this program do?

The program helps teams understand how, as a team, they score on the key components of The Five Behaviors model: trust, conflict, commitment, accountability, and results. Each individual on the team will also understand their own personality style, their team members’ styles and how their styles contribute to the team’s overall success. This assessment also incorporates the reliable, well-known  Everything DiSC®model of behavior:

  • D:    Dominance,
  • i:      Influence,
  • S:    Steadiness,
  • C:    Conscientiousness
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ Take-Away Cards link the five behaviors with reminders of how to effectively approach each Everything DiSC style.
The Essenece of the Five Behaviors...
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Is The Most Complete Team Assessment Available

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ assessment gives team members a sense of their team’s unique strengths and areas of improvement. It’s a tool that evaluates the team’s dynamic across the five fundamental behaviors so members can decide what improvements are necessary for becoming a higher performing team.

The assessment also serves as a powerful measurement for growth. By first taking the assessment at the outset of the development effort, the team will establish a baseline for the current state. Then – after the team learns and practices new skills – taking a re-assessment will provide valuable feedback about where the team is progressing and about where more focus must be placed.

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ assessment now includes an Everything DiSC® behavior-style assessment for each team member, with the results presented on a single graph that plots the personality and behavioral “style”  (Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientiousness) of everyone on the team. Personality and behavioral style is a key determinant for how people present themselves and interpret the words and actions of others. Gaining a better understanding and greater appreciation of each team member’s style gives the team as a whole the ability to work together more effectively.
