The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™

“Not finance. Not strategy. Not technology. It is teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is so powerful and so rare.” – Patrick Lencioni, Author


According to ClearCompany, a talent management software provider, 97% of employees and executives surveyed said that a lack of alignment within a team has an impact on the successful outcome of a task or project. Since developing and executing a strategy is a collaborative effort, a cohesive and aligned team that includes the CEO or owner, senior management and other key employees is essential.

Our partner, the global research firm John Wiley & Sons, has created an assessment-based learning process grounded in the team building model described in Patrick Lencioni’s internationally best seller The Five Dysfunctions of a Team. The assessment is powered by Everything DiSC®, an industry leading tool that helps people understand their personality styles as well as the those of other team members. The result is a more productive, high-functioning team who together makes better and faster decisions.

“Our parent corporation developed a vision statement we liked, but which did not really resonate with the American team. We saw this as an opportunity to develop our own vision… one that we could own, and one that would guide us… Using an outside resource like Albu Consulting enabled me to participate in the process as a team member, rather than as a President.”
— Bob Gilbert, Bel/Kaukauna U.S.A., US subsidiary of Fromageries Bel, S.A.
