The core behaviors for high-performing teams are as follows:

  • Trust 

  • Conflict 

  • Commitment 

  • Accountability

  • Results

The Five Behaviors™ focuses on developing high-performing teams through five key behaviors: Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results.

The Five Behaviors™

   Creating a culture of teamwork is one of the most significant challenges organizations face. 
   The Five Behaviors is based on Patrick Lencioni’s best-selling book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team. The model in the book outlines the core behaviors of high-performing teams —Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results. 
At first glance, The Five Behaviors looks simple, but is it really that simple? Although this model of trust, conflict, commitment, accountability, and results is simple, it is complex to implement. 

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team

   The Five Behaviors program addresses an organization's critical need: helping teams work effectively together, a driving force in today's workplace. And it does this by providing teams with a common language of how to approach day-to-day work by providing an understanding of the skills necessary to create high-performing teams. As a result, team members better understand one another and, more importantly, the behavioral skills they need to attend to drive results.

The Five Behaviors Team Development has a particular focus and approach. As a result, there's an intensity to the program. The program can be quite intense as it requires teams to go deep. As a result, it takes a lot of energy and works to go through the program. There also is a significant investment in the program. Of note, for organizations, there is both a financial and time investment. 

"A team is not a group of people who work together but a team is a group of people who trust each other.”
Simon Sinek

 Regarding the latter, behavior doesn't change overnight, so this program requires the team to invest time initially in understanding the program and working through critical issues, but also continued time investment by mastering how to develop the behaviors needed to increase cohesiveness.

The Five Behaviors Team Development is focused on the team as a whole; this program is not for individuals. Our Team Development program requires all teams to understand and embrace the behaviors together. Then the team can achieve quality results that change the work environment.
