Module 1 - Create awareness with people's data
What gives productive, high-achieving teams a competitive edge? Collaboration.

Module 2 - The Five Behaviors® Team Development

In this workshop, you’ll takeaway:

  • How their team is performing on each of the behaviors in the Five Behaviors model. These results will help the team better understand their team dynamics and create action plans for areas of improvement.

Module 3 - Discovering Your Team Type

No team is effective without trust and communication. With the help of an expert facilitator, this workshop helps you build a self-aware and trusting team. Establish an understanding of each team member’s motivations and work style, and uncover your group’s specific “Team Type.”

Through this catalyzing reveal, your team will become a unit, build lasting cohesion and collaboration habits. You’ll also uncover the group’s collective working style, strengths, blind spots and leave with a clear action plan to better work in harmony.

In this workshop, you’ll takeaway:

  • Discover your Team Type – a uniting moment that fosters team pride and identity
  • Establish a common language to communicate effectively as a group
  • Define what needs to happen to work in harmony, long after the session is over

Module 4 - Designing for Strategic Action

Many teams aren’t a good fit for their objectives and don’t even realize it. The team may not even know or agree on those objectives, in the first place.

This workshop turns uncertain team performance around by mapping a group’s natural strengths to its short-term goals, exposing areas of misalignment, and providing recommendations to address them.

Attendees will learn how to “stretch” their skillset, so they can refocus their daily priorities to best serve the goals at hand. You’ll also be given a clear action plan on how to deliver on the proposed objectives with renewed confidence - so everyone is rowing in the same direction.

In this workshop, you’ll takeaway:

  • Establish agreement on the team’s short-term and long-term goals
  • Gain clarity on each team member’s roles and responsibilities to meet those goals
  • Expose misalignment between strategic goals and behavioral strengths
  • Learn the concept of ‘stretching’ a skillset and how that can improve performance

Module 5 - Optimizing Talent throughout your organization

Many organizations enjoy the benefits of an independently trained facilitator delivering the High Performing Team Series throughout the organization. Alternatively, due to the simplicity of both the Predictive Index and Five Behavior solutions, we can empower the team to deliver the benefits of optimized talent throughout the organization.

We’ll work to recap each session and run through the resources and tools to deliver the High Performing Team Series to additional teams within your organization

In this workshop, you’ll takeaway:

  • How to leverage data to coach individual and team performance.
  • Introduce and coach teams on the Five Behaviors model, including a foundation of vulnerability-based trust, needed to transform the way teams work together.
  • Introduce teams to their team strengths, blind spots, and how to turn friction into complementary strengths.
  • Run team alignment to strategy sessions and develop action plans to ensure talent is aligned to execute on key goals.
