  • The Five Behaviors Powered by All Types

    Based on the work of Patrick Lencioni’s best-seller, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team and Carl Jung’s theory of psychological types, The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Powered by All Types™ helps teams achieve greater effectiveness and productivity and understand how individual personalities and preferences contribute to the team’s overall success.

    This program is designed exclusively for teams within organizations that apply tools based on Jung’s theory of psychological types, like the MBTI instrument[1], as their preferred indicator of personality. This program creates a learning experience that helps teams understand how they score on the components of The Five Behaviors model: Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results, and discover how each individual’s unique personality type brings value to the team.

    Building a cohesive, productive team takes work, but the payoff can be huge—for individuals, the team, and the organization.
