The Five Behaviors® Model

  • 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, unlocked through implementing the model’s principles of Trust, Conflict, Commitment, and Accountability.
