Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships. Michael Jordan
Teams are important everywhere – in sports, in politics and in organizations! People don’t work in silos – even individual contributors are part of a larger team that has common goals and regular interactions with each other.
Millions of dollars and numerous hours of training are spent every year by organizations to attain the elusive “teamwork”. Much has been written about teamwork. People attend “fun” team-building sessions with exciting games and come back to work pumped up to become team players. But how long does the learning last? In most cases after a couple of weeks all people remember is the great outdoor location or a really fun game they played!
Clearly teamwork is not only critical but also hard-work. Working together as cohesive teams does not come easily – with different personalities, sometimes conflicting goals and shortage of time to really feel part of team – teamwork remains an elusive concept for most teams even today.
So is there a way to create real change in attitude towards teamwork and create truly cohesive teams?
With The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team assessment based team intervention creating cohesive teams is not just possible but simple.
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team model, brings together the ground-breaking work in teamwork by Patrcik Lencioni and the world leaders in behavioural assessments – Everything DiSC by Wiley.
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team program, addresses the five tenets of teamwork – Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability and Results. Without vulnerability based trust in team there can be no productive conflict around ideas. Debating ideas and reaching a decision will make the team members commit to the decisions and they feel comfortable holding each other accountable and finally this will lead to achieving results or common goals. The profile goes a step further and describes the impact of the behavioural styles of the team members on the group processes, how they handle trust, conflict, commitment, accountability and results.
This comprehensive solution breaks down many myths about teams and teamwork and can sustain the leaning journey over time to result in truly cohesive teams.
