The Five Behaviors is the only team development solution that empowers individuals through self-discovery and constructive behavioral modeling to rewrite the traditional rules of teamwork.
The Five Behaviors is based on New York Times best-selling author Patrick Lencioni’s ground- breaking model for developing cohesive teams through five key behaviors: Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results. With more than 3.2 million copies in print, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team is a cornerstone methodology for teamwork and organizational development.
The Five Behaviors combines this powerful team model with personalized insights, revealed through personality assessments like Everything DiSC®, to help individuals understand themselves and others on their team. The result is a unique and impactful team development solution that empowers team members to turn insights into action and ensure tangible, lasting change.
The experience acknowledges one’s humanity and enables each team member to recognize and embrace their shared imperfections, ultimately establishing a strong foundation of vulnerability- based trust. From this foundation, team members can channel the power of conflict, commit to shared goals, hold each other accountable, and deliver better results—together.
The Five Behaviors experience starts with an assessment that combines computer-adaptive testing and sophisticated algorithms to deliver precise, personalized insights to each team member.
Rich, Personalized Learning Experience
Each team member receives a robust, personalized profile that helps drive understanding of self and others within the framework of the Five Behaviors. The profile comes to life in a customized training experience that engages and educates with impactful activities and powerful discussions that address all essential behaviors for effective teamwork. The experience goes beyond teaching inclusion or conflict management. Teams learn the foundational principles for building a cohesive team and the discipline required to overcome barriers caused by natural tendencies that make effective teamwork so elusive.
