The Model

The five behaviors of a cohesive team

To gain this advantage, teams must:

1.Trust One Another

When team members are genuinely transparent and honest with one another, they are able to build vulnerability-based trust.

2. Engage in Conflict Around Ideas

When there is trust, team members are able to engage in unfiltered, constructive debate of ideas.

3. Commit to Decisions

When team members are able to offer opinions and debate ideas, they will be more likely to commit to decisions.

4. Hold One Another Accountable

When everyone is committed to a clear plan of action, they will be more willing to hold one another accountable.

5. Focus on Achieving Collective Results

The ultimate goal of building greater trust, conflict, commitment, and accountability is one thing: the achievement of results.
