The Five Behaviors Model


The Five Behaviors combines the framework of Patrick Lencioni’s model for teamwork with personalized insights to create powerful, customized, and authentic team development solutions that empower individuals to make lasting change.

The Five Behaviors Pyramid


Trust One Another

When team members are genuinely transparent and honest with one another, it forms a safe environment that creates and builds vulnerability-based trust.


Engage in Conflict around Ideas

With trust, team members are able to engage in unfiltered, constructive debate of ideas.


Commit to Decisions

When team members are able to offer opinions and debate ideas, they feel heard and respected, and will be more likely to commit to decisions.


Hold One Another Accountable

Once everyone is committed to a clear plan of action, they will be more willing to hold one another accountable.


Focus on Achieving Collective Results

The ultimate goal is the achievement of results, which is unlocked through implementing the model’s principles of Trust, Conflict, Commitment, and Accountability.

Four people talking

Darci Kleindl,

General Sales Manager, Microsoft Business Solutions

The Five Behaviors actually gave me something that was actionable and that the team could see as actionable, more at a collective level but also at an individual level. I got emails from people saying, ‘No one has ever invested in me this way. It’s fantastic!’

Mark Nikolich,

CEO of Braskem America

It’s beautiful in its simplicity. It’s practical, measurable, and you can use it in the context of your own company culture with real things that are happening in business today, which makes it much more powerful.

Alyson McCarthy,

CEO Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Las Vegas

I’ve taken so many trainings from so many different people in the past, and I can honestly say this is the only program I’ve ever taken where what I learned is actually implemented and being used to this day.
