The Five Behaviors® for Personal Development
Engage your employees in understanding themselves and their team dynamic for greater productivity.

Team Building & Personal Development

The Five Behaviors® Personal Development solution teaches individuals to become better teammates. Our methods integrate the model from Patrick Lencioni’s book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, at the organizational level to promote stronger, more cohesive change. Designed specifically for self-improvement, participants do not need to be part of the same team for the method to work.

Any participant can benefit from this program and adopt its powerful principles, shape behaviors, and create a common language that empowers people to rewrite what it means to work together. With physical and virtual classroom capabilities, participants can experience this proven solution in a group setting or from the comfort of home.

Build and Fortify Skills that Transcend Teams

The purpose of this program is to create and scale a culture of teamwork and collaboration. It can benefit any organization and is an appropriate program for groups of up to 30 people at a time.
