Five Behaviors Personal Development®

A growing amount of teams are working in a remote or hybrid setting, making the need for effective teamwork greater than ever. The Five Behaviors Personal Development program provides a model of teamwork that helps individuals navigate the challenges of working with teams effectively.

Five Behaviors® for Individual Development

Define how every employee contributes to a team.

Team structures have changed. In fact, in a recent study of 20,000 employee responses, 76% responded that they are on more than one team. While this trend allows employees greater opportunities to work in a variety of capacities, it also creates a problem for anyone who is trying to implement a team training workshop. What team do you focus on? How do you effectively promote teamwork?

In Patrick Lencioni’s bestselling book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, the main character of the fable outlines five areas that collectively cause any team to fail:

  1. Absence of Trust
  2. Fear of  Conflict
  3. Lack of Commitment
  4. Avoidance of Accountability
  5. Inattention to Results

In the Five Behaviors training program, these areas are used to help individual team members understand how they impact any team they are working on.

Five Behaviors Assessments

The Five Behaviors assessments are sold based on quantity. For that reason, it’s better for organizations to purchase their training materials based on yearly usage rather than by individual training events.

There are two options to consider when purchasing these assessments:

  1. Organizations can open an administrative account on a platform called EPIC which is also used to issue Everything DiSC and other training assessments published by Wiley.
  2. Purchase the assessment through our online store. We will contact you directly for all contact information for the attending team members once payment is received (please allow 1 business day to set up).
