Build trust to transform your organization’s culture!

Unleash the untapped potential of your company

Five Behaviors® solutions help you activate your team’s ability to generate extraordinary performance through cohesive teamwork – whether it’s with the personal development program that helps individuals acquire the skills they need to « team up » effectively, or the teambuilding program that helps teams acquire the know-how to work better together.

Both solutions are based on the 5 Behaviors model: trust, conflict, commitment, accountability, and results. This framework is combined with customized reports to create powerful, personalized and authentic team development solutions. Based on Patrick Lencioni’s best-selling « The Five Dysfunctions of a Team », they enable teams and individuals to create a more dynamic collaborative work environment, transform company culture and rise together.

The ultimate goal is collective results, unlocked by implementing the principles of trust, conflict, commitment and accountability.

Once everyone is committed to a clear course of action, team members feel responsible and able to hold themselves accountable.

When team members have given their opinions and debated openly, they will be ready to fully commit to the decisions made..

With this mutual trust, team members are able to argue with each other to find the best solutions.

When team members are truly vulnerable and transparent with each other, it creates an environment where deep trust is built.
