Solutions

  • Building a Foundation of Respect, Trust, and Good Will

    We live in a culture of increasing negativity, suspicion, and prejudice. It's in the air we breathe, from government to the marketplace. And, its not enough to respond with politically correct language, nice gestures, or motivational posters on conference room walls. What is needed is a rebirth of respect, trust, and good will. Building on Everything DiSC® awareness (which elevates understanding and respect), The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ creates both trust and good will. It provides tools for engaging in healthy conflict and developing peer level accountability—all in pursuit of shared goals. Your team will make better decisions, faster . . . process misunderstanding and conflict with less delay . . . tap into the skills of all of its members . . . raise productivity . . . and have much more fun together. No exaggeration.

  • Creating a Healthy Culture That Doesn't Require Cheerleading

    Leaders can create healthy cultures. But wouldn't it be great if a leader could initiate a culture-building process that the entire team would understand, embrace, and promote—long after the pioneering leader moved on or retired? The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ is a simple, personalized, proven culture-building tool for large and small organizations that desire to function with greater health and productivity without constant cheerleading from executives or managers. This emotionally intelligent culture of trust, healthy conflict, peer level commitment and accountability, with an eye on results can become "the way we do things" here in our organization.

  • The Ideal Team Member and The Advantage Training/Coaching Add Ons

    The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ is based on Patrick Lencioni's best-selling book The Five Dysfunctions of a Team. It is a classic that shows no sign of declining influence. And, once your team has participated in this initial training foundation, additional, complimentary training and coaching opportunities based on Lencioni's newer books—The Ideal Team Member and The Advantage —become meaningful tools for further developing team health and organizational life.
