The Five Behaviors™ Personal Development

The Five Behaviors™ Personal Development  helps people discover how to be a better teammates and rewrite what it means to work better together.

About the Program

Harness the power of The Five Behaviors® across the entire organization. The Five Behaviors™ Personal Development solution teaches individuals to become better teammates by integrating Patrick Lencioni’s model at the organizational level. The goal is to completely redefine teamwork and collaboration. Personal Development was designed specifically to work for individuals; participants do not all need to be part of the same team. Rather, participants can carry the takeaways of this program from one team to the next, enabling a culture of teamwork. Learners at all levels of an organization 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.

The program includes:

  • A computer-adaptive, psychological assessment
  • Personal Development Profile and one-on-one Comparison Reports
  • Half-day facilitation that includes activities, video, and a handout, plus two optional activities

BUILDING THE FOUNDATION OF A COHESIVE TEAM

Trust lies at the heart of a functioning, cohesive team and can only happen when team members are willing to be completely vulnerable with one another. This includes saying things like “I’m sorry” or “Your idea was better than mine.” A personality assessment can help people gain insight on their peers and develop empathy, two important qualities that allow a team to build trust.

Productive individuals thrive on teams that are based on trust—the foundation of The Five Behaviors™ model. In this program, teams discover how to view vulnerability as an opportunity for strengthening relationships among their teammates.

ENGAGING IN HEALTHY CONFLICT

Conflict is naturally uncomfortable, but productive conflict focused on concepts and ideas is essential for any great team to grow. When teams have a foundation of vulnerability-based trust, conflict simply becomes an attempt to find the best possible solution in the shortest period of time.

When teams have a foundation of vulnerability-based trust, team members feel safe to engage in productive conflict focused on concepts and ideas. This conflict becomes a means for debating different perspectives and landing on the best possible solution.

BUYING IN ON DECISIONS

Commitment is clarity around decisions, not consensus. With commitment, teams move forward with complete buy-in from every team member – including those who may initially disagree.

The Five Behaviors™ model explores commitment as clarity around decisions and complete buy-in from team members. Teams that achieve commitment use a common language to engage in healthy debate and support decisions even if everyone does not initially agree.

HOLDING TEAM MEMBERS ACCOUNTABLE

It’s easy to avoid difficult conversations, but calling out peers on performance or behaviors that might hurt the team is essential to productivity. By “entering the danger” with one another, team members feel trusted, respected, and responsible for getting things done right.

High-performing teams set high standards for themselves. Holding team members accountable for their responsibilities helps establish respect among peers and guides the team to live up to their expectations.

FOCUSING ON COLLECTIVE RESULTS

One of the greatest challenges to team success is the inattention to results. Great teams ensure all members, regardless of their individual responsibilities and areas of expertise, are doing their best to help accomplish team goals.

The goal of every team is results. By building a foundation of trust, engaging in productive conflict, achieving commitment, and holding team members accountable, teams never lose sight of their collective goals and can achieve their peak performance.

Solutions

Today’s organizations are working beyond a single team. Advances in technology are disrupting the market, globalization is forcing a new approach of working, and the teams of the future have never seen this level of diversity. In essence, organizations need to equip their employees to quickly create cohesive teams that enable results. The idea was to create a model that harnesses the power of Patrick Lencioni’s The Five Dysfunctions of a Team and adjust it to benefit the individual, who can then disperse the key takeaways throughout their organization.

This is a tool to help individuals better understand, internalize, and apply the principles of The Five Behaviors model and to foster communication that can be used throughout
an organization.  It’s designed to be delivered in a classroom setting of up to 30 participants, regardless of how well they know one another.
