The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team

Five Behaviors Authorized Partner logo

Crux Move Consulting is an Authorized Partner Provider of The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™. Crux Move brings over 25 years of experience working with leadership teams to a new process developed by Wiley and Patrick Lencioni.

THE FIVE BEHAVIORS OF A COHESIVE TEAM is an assessment-based learning experience that helps individuals and organizations reveal what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team in the most approachable, competent, and effective way possible.  Powered by Everything DiSC®, the profiles help participants understand their own DiSC® styles. Bringing together everyone’s personalities and preferences to form a cohesive, productive team takes work, but the payoff can be huge – for individuals, the team, and the organization.

The single most untapped competitive advantage is teamwork.

To gain this advantage, teams must:Five Behaviors team pyramid 300x246

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 well 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.


There are many reasons teams fail. There’s one proven way to help them succeed.

What does the 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 and their team members styles, based on the DiSC® model: D: Dominance, i: Influence, S: Steadiness, and C: Conscientiousness, and how their style contributes to the team’s overall success.

The program is designed exclusively for intact teams and work groups. The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team harnesses the power of Everything DiSC® and the clarity and simplicity of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team model.

How does it work?
The Five Behaviors Model is used to help team members learn to work together more effectively and become a more cohesive team. A productive, high-functioning team:

  • Makes better, faster decisions
  • Taps into the skills and opinions of all members
  • Avoids wasting time and energy on politics, confusion, and destructive conflict
  • Avoids wasting time talking about the wrong issues and revisiting the same topics over and over again because of a lack of buy-in
  • Creates a competitive advantage
  • Is more fun to be on
