The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team 

In most organizations, nothing gets done without people working together to achieve shared goals. But far too often the very practice of teamwork can be painful. Why? Because teams give way to infighting, gossip, and politics. High-functioning teams break this mold by dedicating time and effort to embracing a healthier set of behaviors.

Research shows that highly cohesive teams consistently outperform other groups of people because they...

  • Make better, faster decisions
  • Tap into the skills and opinions of all members
  • Avoid wasting energy on politics and destructive conflict
  • Have more fun while being more productive

So how does a "normal" team become a highly cohesive team? They dedicate time and effort to instilling these five key behaviors:

  1. Build TRUST with each other
  2. Engage in productive CONFLICT around ideas
  3. Drive COMMITMENT to the decisions they make
  4. Foster higher levels of ACCOUNTABILITY
  5. Focus on achieving shared RESULTS

Team Facilitator Training


Per Person

2 days

In this session, you'll build expertise in facilitating teamwork. You'll learn how to use The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team to move a team towards higher levels of engagement and performance.

As a facilitator, you influence whether the team uses an uncomfortable moment as an opportunity to grow or if they miss their chance.

  • What would you do if a team member starts to cry?
  • How would you keep the conversation going when no one wants to speak up?

Facilitator Training will help you hone your instincts for when to stick to the agenda and when to improvise; when to let a debate play out and when to cut it short.

It is very evident that the Integris team is passionate and enthusiastic about the work they do. They have energized and provided fuel for our Lean journey. We view them as our gifted, trusted and highly respected partners in continuous improvement.

Ken Guy

Director, King County FBOD

San Diego Humane Society has been working with Integris for more than a year and it's been a 110% positive experience. We have nearly 600 staff and their commitment to our organization is nothing short of astonishing. We're lucky to have sent senior staff a year and a half ago, and developed a partnership that I rarely see. I give Integris my highest recommendation possible.

Gary Weitzman

President, San Diego Humane Society

I have had the pleasure to work directly with the Integris team on a number of initiatives, from Lean Six Sigma to Leadership Development. Their latest effort related to improving Team Performance is a winner. I would strongly recommend Foundations of Team Cohesion for anyone who wants to take their performance to the next level.

Rajiv Mehta

Business Controls Manager, San Diego Gas & Electric

The team of experts at Integris provided thought-provoking experience in a collaborative team setting. I would recommend them to anyone who is seeking to increase their knowledge of how to lead teams or develop leaders.

It was by far the best workshop I've participated in throughout my professional career. It was an interactive, fully engaging experience that was well worth the time away from the office! I immediately put into practice everything I learned.

An Innovative Approach for
Democratizing Team & Leadership Development

You may have noticed that the per person cost of this program is lower than similar programs you see advertised elsewhere. You may be asking yourself why. Well, I can tell you it's definitely NOT that we cut corners or skimped on quality. This is the same high-quality material, presented by the same seasoned professionals, as our standard corporate programs.

What's different is our approach to hosting these events. We've partnered with local clients to select the venues and fill the class roster. As a result, we are able to this world-class development program at a fraction of the normal cost.

WANT US TO COME TO YOUR CITY? If you have a team ready to participate and you have a meeting space you are willing to open up to participants from other organizations,  contact me and let's talk about it. I'd love to continue democratizing team and leadership development by bringing this powerful program to new locations!

Here's to making an IMPACT together,
