Five Behaviors Team Development

The Five Behaviors® Will Transform Your Teams.

Our work environments are always changing where we work now. Because of this, it can feel almost impossible to build a team that works well together. The truth is that teams rarely reach their peak level of collaboration and full potential without knowing it.

Even teams that do a good job overall can have problems like disengagement, lack of cohesion, or conflict that doesn't help. When your team's work slows down, it can be hard to figure out what's going wrong.

Even if you notice a few early warning signs before a serious drop in productivity, it can be tempting to focus on those specific situations or individual interactions instead of doing the real work of building a great team dynamic the right way from the ground up.

With the right structure, it's easy to learn and use teamwork, and relationships grow, which takes your organization to the next level. The Five Behaviors® Team Development can change how you think and how you work as a group.


What Is The Five Behaviors® Team Development?

The Five Behaviors® Team Development is based on the international best-seller The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni. The Five Behaviors model of Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results helps intact teams become more effective and productive.

89 percent of people who learned The Five Behaviors say it made their team work better.

This powerful virtual or in-person experience evaluates how a whole team works together and helps team members learn more about themselves and the other people on their team so that they can reach their goals more effectively. The result is a unique and effective team development solution that gives teams the power to rethink how they work together, shape new, more productive behaviors to increase productivity, and create a common language that completely changes what it means to work together. When team members learn social skills they need to understand how they and others contribute to the team's growth and how their part can make or break the team and it's dynamic, they can rise together.

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team is the best book on how to build teams that work well together. As a best seller around the world, it has changed the way many teams work.

How Does The Five Behaviors® Team Development Work?

Patrick Lencioni, a leading thinker on how to work well as a team and collaborate, made his powerful and easy-to-understand model public 20 years ago. Then, Wiley used its experience developing training programs to bring Lencioni's model to life through interactive and individualized learning experiences. How it works is as follows:


The Model

The Five Behaviors® model looks like a pyramid, with each behavior building on the one before it. This model is simple, sound, and straightforward. It asks teams to rethink how they work together.

The Assessment

All of this starts with The Five Behaviors assessment, which measures how well the team is doing in five areas: trust, conflict, commitment, accountability, and results. This assessment is based on Everything DiSC®, a personality tool that has been proven to work through research. It helps people figure out their own DiSC® style and how each style adds value to the team.

The Profile

After taking the test, people get a detailed, personalized profile that helps them learn more about themselves, their work style, and the other people on their team. Teams will also find out how well they are doing on each of The Five Behaviors® model's behaviors. These results will help the team better understand how they work together and make plans for areas where they can improve.

The Facilitation

Facilitation takes place during a one-day or three-day training session, either online or in person, led by a trained Five Behaviors expert. This session brings the insights from the personalized profile to life through powerful breakout activities and group discussions that help the team use what they've learned in their everyday work.

Tools to Continue the Teams Development

Building a team that works well together takes time and ongoing work. Both the comparison and progress reports can help teams keep learning and growing. The comparison reports are follow-up reports that show how important The Five Behaviors are for both personal relationships and the way a team works. Teams will be able to compare how their performance has changed over time with the help of the progress report.
