There are five core behaviours of a cohesive team.


At Beyond the Barriers, we work with organisations to:

-Education teams about what they are and how they can be used

-Stress test how deeply embedded those behaviours are currently

-Help form an action plan to dial forward areas that may not be as strong

Why consider using a behavioural model? Well, good results are almost certainly replicable. They are done so through understanding behavioural patterns and adapting them for the situation you are in.

A model, such as the one below, provides a pre-proven track to success.

– Trust One Another

When team members are genuinely transparent and honest with one another, they can build vulnerability-based trust. This form of trust is by far the strongest.

– Engage in Conflict Around Ideas

When there is trust, team members can engage in the unfiltered, constructive debate of ideas.

– Commit to Decisions

When team members can 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, health conflict, commitment, and accountability is one thing: the achievement of results.
