  • Resolving Team Conflict

    When teams have a foundation of vulnerability-based trust, team members feel safe to engage in productive conflict focused on concepts and ideas. This conflict becomes a means for debating different perspectives and landing on the best possible solution.

    The desire to preserve artificial harmony stifles the occurrence of productive ideological conflict.

  • Creating Real Accountability

    High-performing teams set high standards for themselves. Holding team members accountable for their responsibilities helps establish respect among peers and guides the team to live up to their expectations.

  • The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ Behavior & Personality Style Based

    The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ has a simple goal: To help people discover how to build a truly cohesive and effective team. Based on Patrick Lencioni’s internationally best-selling leadership fable The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, this assessment-based program focuses on putting The Five Behaviors™ model into practice. Additionally, two versions of the program are available: Powered by Everything DiSC® or All Types™( Jung’s theory of psychological types, like the MBTI® instrument )[1] — two distinct personality models — which help participants better understand how individual personalities contribute to team development. Both are equally valuable in helping teams achieve greater effectiveness and productivity.

  • Building Trust

    Productive individuals thrive on teams that are based on trust—the foundation of The Five Behaviors™ model. In this program, teams discover how to view vulnerability as an opportunity for strengthening relationships among their teammates. When you trust your teammates you will work with them to get results.
