Updated: Feb 3, 2022

There are two types of Five Behaviours solutions, for teams and individuals. This article explains the differences.

Not finance. Not strategy. Not technology. It is teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is so powerful and so rare - Patrick Lencioni

The Five Behaviors® Programme is a collaboration between Wiley, the publisher of Everything DiSC, and Patrick Lencioni, the author of the best-selling book 'The Five Dysfunctions of a Team'. This partnership combines Lencioni's model for teamwork with personalised insights to create powerful, customised and authentic team development solutions that empower individuals to make a lasting change.

The Programme brings to life the true power of teamwork through a proven, transformational learning experience.

Innovative Assessment

The Five Behaviors experience stats with an assessment that combines computer-adaptive testing and sophisticated algorithms to deliver precise, personal insights to each team member.

Rich, Personal Learning Experience

Each team member receives a robust, personal profile that helps drive understanding of self and others within the framework of the Five Behaviors model. The profile comes to life through a customised training experience that engages and educates with impactful activities and powerful discussions that address all essential behaviours for effective teamwork. The experience goes beyond teaching inclusion or conflict management. 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.

Tools for Continued Learning

Top ensure lasting change, a set of follow-up tools and resources help rack progress and reinforce the concepts and common team language introduced in the experience. Teams can take advantage of ongoing Progress Reports whilst individuals can take advantage of Comparison Reports which help to build effective working relationships between members of the team.

So, which Five Behaviors solution is the best for my situation?

This depends on your situation and organisational structure. The Team Development solution is specifically designed for in-tact teams of up to 12 people. The whole team takes the assessment and engages in the training together. The Personal Development solution creates a culture of teamwork and collaboration across an organisation. Unlimited numbers of participants can benefit, and it is particularly useful for team-members that work across multiple teams or operate in a matrix style organisation.
