  • The Five Behaviors ™ Personal Development

    organization. The Five Behaviors Personal Development solution teaches individuals to become better
    teammates by integrating Patrick Lencioni’s model at the organizational level. The goal is to completely
    redefine teamwork and collaboration.

    Personal Development was designed specifically to work for individuals; participants do not all need to
    be part of the same team. Rather, participants can carry the takeaways of this program from one team
    to the next, enabling a culture of teamwork. Learners at all levels of an organization can benefit from
    this program and adopt its powerful principles, shape behaviors, and create a common language that
    empowers people to rewrite what it means to work together.
