Testimonials for Group Dynamic

  • We have used DiSC in our organization for years, and it’s a great tool, but recently went one step further and had Alan facilitate Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team with our leadership. The exercise allowed for deeper conversation around the five behaviors, and opportunity to build team-focused goals. It was time well spent!

    Alyssa (Smola) JohnstonLeadership Training Manager, Iowa Corn Growers Association
  • Alan’s animated, dashing pace kept all participants actively engaged and anxious to learn all that our time together could provide. A day doesn’t pass without someone discussing a profile! A very rewarding experience!

    Tamara BaneInstructional Coach, State Finalist, Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics Education
  • Alan did a remarkable job doing his ‘homework’ on our industry and organization prior to our workshop. The leadership and personality assessment he uses in his facilitation are the most accurate I’ve seen. I would recommend Alan for all types of organizations.

    Melissa MillerDirector of Employee Engagement, Story County Medical Center
  • The session we had with you helped us identify our areas of struggle and how to establish our norms so everyone know what to expect. It is amazing the differences we find in our merged organization and the accomplishments we have made since our meetings.

    Erin GravesNational Service Delivery Director, ADP
  • Of the countless training sessions I’ve been to in my civilian life and the training I’ve received in my 13 year Coast Guard career I’ve never experienced someone with your charisma and talent.

  • Team Development with the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team

    This hands-on development program will measure your team’s current state, using The Five Behaviors model of Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results. We apply the assessment results to your team’s culture. Expect improved team effectiveness, awareness and productivity. Utilizing an assessment including Everything DiSC, a tool that helps build effective team communication and relationships, this program allows participants to learn about their own DiSC style and discover how each style brings value to the team. Our intense team training will guide your teammates through the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team so they can establish a foundation of trust and set effective priorities when working through complex issues. This step by step process will be personable, lasting, and transformative for your team.

  • An Introduction to Team Development

    Learn and understand the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team through a brief, 2-4 hour workplace workshop, or 60-120 minute conference breakout session. Note that this session will not include the full Five Behaviors reports. In this session, we will explore the good and bad in all five areas of dysfunction, as outlined in Patrick Lencioni’s book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team. Leaders will be more effective in teams when they can successfully identify these dysfunctions, then influence their teams in ways that will instead lead them toward the five behaviors of a cohesive team. Following this session, you will be able to identify the 5 dysfunctions by specific behavior, using the 5-point model, then put into action a few tools to turn those dysfunctions into positive behaviors.
