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 includes a 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.
