The Five Bahaviors of a Cohesive Team® | Call to Action for Dutch-, and International Executive Teams

On a Global level collaboration is taking over the workplace. As business becomes increasingly cross-functional, executive teamwork is the key to success, breaking down silos and increasing connectivity. And it all starts with you, your board of directors or your management team.

How cohesive is your executive team?

Are you in the beginning, on your way or in the middle of becoming a cohesive team, and establishing successful teamwork? Do you actually know what it takes to become a successful team?

Strengths & Challenges | DiSC Work of Leaders

Most probably you are part of a group professional executives that were never challenged to become a cohesive team. For this reason the only way to become a cohesive team is trough an in-depth personal one on one approach. Before your group can transform into a team it is necessary to know both, the individual and group leadership Strengths & Challenges and also each preferred individual behavior and the Group Culture.

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team®

Now, and only after a zero measurement of the group, the group is ready to learn about the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team. The 5 B’s can help leaders to discover how to build a truly cohesive and effective executive team that:

  • Establishes Trust between team members
  • Engages in Conflict around ideas
  • Commits to decision’s
  • Holds team members Accountable
  • Focuses on achieving collective Results
  • Is an example for all company teams
