  • TEAM DEVELOPMENT FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP

    If your leadership meetings consist of departmental reports punctuated by conflict, more than the agenda needs to change. For your organization to reach its full potential, the directors themselves must change.

    The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team based on Patrick Lencioni’s bestselling book The Five Dysfunctions of a Team guides the individual leaders on your team to…
    • evaluate their own performance on the five behaviors;
    • learn about themselves and each other with the help of Wiley’s Everything DiSC®; and
    • learn to use their new understanding to forge a strong, cohesive team.

    Teams that work with Michelle have described their work as “hugely beneficial.” She’s the Partner you need.
