The Five Behaviors™: Team Development is a one-day facilitated program designed to help teams learn about and practice the behaviors of healthy, well-functioning teams. FlashPoint can facilitate this program in-person or virtually for your teams. Based on a team assessment powered by Everything DiSC® or All Types™, the facilitator shapes the program content around the team's scores on the five behaviors of a healthy, functioning, effective team.
The program is designed to help team members become a more cohesive team. The facilitator uses activities, videos, and discussion to lead the participants through the powerful Five Behaviors™ model, helping them learn and practice the proven (and powerful) behaviors that will make the team more cohesive and improve performance.
During the virtual or in-person program:
The Five Behaviors™: Team Development program is designed for intact teams to learn to work together more efficiently and effectively. It can be used to help executive teams establish cohesion, as part of a new leader assimilation, or to take any team toward higher performance.
Executive team programs can help the team improve their decision-making process, reinforce cohesion, and create an action plan to drive the team forward strategically.
The program can also be used as part of a new leader's assimilation onto a team during his or her first year as a way to establish a baseline for how the team is performing and to establish clear areas of focus moving forward.
For any team seeking better accountability, more buy-in, or improved trust, The Five Behaviors™: Team Development helps the team identify its strengths and areas of improvement related to The Five Behaviors™ and create an action plan to improve.Back to Top
The Five Behaviors™ Personal Development is a half-day program designed for all employees to learn how to develop good habits, contribute to a culture of teamwork and collaboration, and understand their ownership in establishing effective teams. FlashPoint can deliver this program virtually or in-person for your employees. Participants do not need to be on the same team to learn The Five Behaviors™ model and apply the behaviors across any team they work on. This program establishes a culture of teamwork one person at a time, emphasizing the individual's impact on team building and understanding how each behavior connects to the other behaviors.
The program is designed to help every individual in the organization take ownership of creating a culture of teamwork. The facilitator uses activities, videos, and discussion to engage the participants with the powerful Five Behaviors™ model, helping them learn proven (and powerful) team behaviors, plus understand how their style and preferences contribute to a team's culture and effectiveness. Each participant will gain the skills to make any team they work on more cohesive and improve performance and results.
During the virtual or in-person program:
The Five Behaviors™: Personal Development program is designed for any employee across the whole organization to contribute to a culture of teamwork and collaboration one person at a time. It especially benefits matrix organizations, employees who work on cross-functional teams, and project teams that are quickly established or changed.
The Five Behaviors™: Team Development program is a facilitated one-day team retreat session.
A one-day Five Behaviors™: Team Development program is designed to be fast, practical, and relevant. Participants quickly focus on the key issues where the team needs work, leaving the training with knowledge of the model and how the team is currently performing plus actionable ideas on how to move forward.
Participants take the pre-assessment to understand the team’s performance on each of the five behaviors, then the facilitator tailors workshop content to the group’s unique needs and areas of dysfunction. The retreat is followed by an optional progress assessment several months later to gauge the team’s improvement and areas that could benefit from continued focus in each behavior.
Other program options include:
The Five Behaviors™: Personal Development program is a facilitated half-day workshop. Participants take an online assessment powered by Everything DiSC® that shows where they may excel and struggle with each proven teamwork behavior.
