to Team Development
The Five Behaviors works by addressing the full spectrum of essential cohesive team behaviors. 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.
From the team profiles generated, we offer a customized training experience engaging evidence-based activities and discussions to address all essential behaviors for effective teamwork. The experience goes beyond teaching inclusion or conflict management. Here, 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.

To ensure lasting change, our follow-up resources help track the team’s progress and reinforce the powerful concepts and common team language introduced in the experience.
