Highly effective teams are a catalyst for organizational results. Using The Five Behaviors method, we help you create a culture where employees communicate effectively, feel engaged, trust one another and are devoted to achieving business goals.

Based on the work of Patrick Lencioni’s international best-seller The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team® Powered by Everything DiSC® helps teams apply The Five Behaviors model of Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results to drive team effectiveness and productivity. The program uses Everything DiSC, a tool that helps build effective team communication and relationships, to help participants understand their individual DiSC® style and discover how each style brings value to the team.

Explore The Five Behaviors model which can be incorporated with either DiSC or Myers Briggs.
