Build a Culture of Teamwork
In the modern workplace, our environments are in constant flux. As a result, it can feel downright impossible to develop a truly cohesive team. The truth: teams rarely hit their collaborative peak and potential unconsciously. Even teams producing generally good results may be burdened with disengagement, lack of cohesion, or non-productive conflict. When your team’s productivity falters, it’s often difficult to pinpoint the source of concern. Even when you spot a few early warning signs before any serious drop in productivity, it’s often tempting to focus on those specific situations or individual interactions instead of addressing the real work of building a great team dynamic from the ground up, the right way. With the right framework, developing and practicing teamwork comes consistently, and relationships thrive—taking your organisation to the next level. The Five Behaviors Team Development can transform your perspective and the way you team.

What is the Five Behaviors Team Development?
Based on the work of Patrick Lencioni’s international best-seller, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, The Five Behaviors® Team Development transforms intact teams through The Five Behaviors model of Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results to drive team effectiveness and productivity.
This powerful virtual or in-person experience assesses an intact team’s approach to teamwork and helps team members better understand themselves and the personalities on their team so they can effectively achieve their goals. The result is a unique and impactful team development solution that empowers teams to rethink their approach to teamwork, shape new, more productive behaviors to increase productivity, and create a common language that completely redefines what it means to work together. When team members gain the interpersonal skills needed to understand how they and others contribute to their team’s development and how their part can make or break the team and its dynamic, they can work rise together.
Patrick Lencioni, a thought-leader on effective teamwork and collaboration, introduced his powerful and approachable model 20 years ago. Wiley then leveraged its expertise in training programme development to bring Lencioni’s model to life through engaging and personalised learning experiences. Here’s how it works:
The Five Behaviors® model takes the form of a pyramid, with each behavior serving as a foundation for the next. Simple, sound, and straightforward—this model challenges teams to rethink their approach when working together.
It all starts with The Five Behaviors assessment, which measures how the team is performing in five areas: Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results. Powered by Everything DiSC, a research-validated personality tool, this assessment helps participants identify their individual DiSC style and discover how each style brings value to the team.
After taking the assessment, participants receive a precise, personalised profile that deepens their understanding of self, work style, and others on their team. Teams will also learn how their specific team is performing on each of the behaviors in The Five Behaviors model. These findings will help the team better understand their dynamics and create action plans for areas of improvement.
The facilitation experience takes place over a one-day or three-day virtual or in-person training session, led by a trained Five Behaviors expert. This session brings the personalised profile insights to life, through powerful breakout activities and group discussions that help the team translate the learnings into impactful everyday practices.
Because building a cohesive team takes time and continuous effort, teams can continue their learning and development through both the comparison and progress reports. The comparison reports are follow-up reports which emphasise the importance of The Five Behaviors for both individual relationships and team functioning. With the progress report, teams will be able to compare how their performance has changed over time.
