What is Five Behaviors Accreditation?

Facilitator Accreditation is designed for in-house facilitators, to enable them to scale and customize The Five Behaviors learning experience in their own organization. This intensive course increases facilitator confidence around the principles of Patrick Lencioni’s model, suggests strategies for delivering a customized learning experience, and gives insights for navigating challenging classroom scenarios. Participants will not only gain the credential and expertise needed to deliver The Five Behaviors, but gain the skills needed to help foster an engaged, collaborative culture.

Why Get Accredited in The Five Behaviors Team Development?

While accreditation is not a requirement to use The Five Behaviors, completing Wiley’s accreditation signifies a proven level of capability and expertise in The Five Behaviors. Commit to learning that lasts with a professional credential that connects your people and fosters a culture of collaboration.
