Building Cohesive School Leadership Team

Every team can do better, even if your team is already a high performing team. Introducing The Five Behaviours of a Cohesive Team programme, which is based on the work of Patrick Lencioni’s international best-seller The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, this programme is a comprehensive team development program that can help your team apply The Five Behaviours model of Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results to drive team effectiveness and productivity.

Here’s a checklist for Building A Cohesive Leadership Team from “The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else in Business” by Patrick Lencioni    

  • Members of the team trust one another and can be genuinely vulnerable with each other.
  • Team members regularly engage in productive, unfiltered conflict around important issues.
  • The team leaves meetings with clear-cut, active and specific agreements around decisions.
  • Team members hold one another accountable to commitments and behaviours.
  • Members of the leadership team are focused on team number one. They put the collective priorities and needs of the larger organization ahead of their own departments.
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

The Five Behaviours of a Cohesive Team® has a simple goal: To facilitate a learning experience that help people discover what to takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team.

During the workshop, you will learn The Five Behaviours of a Cohesive Team and participants will come out of the training not just with a knowledge of the model and of how the team is currently performing (based on the assessment), but also with concrete ideas of where the team needs to focus its energy moving forward.

  • 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 will 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
