  • The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Facilitation

    First, we assess your teams' effectiveness using the assessment profile. Then we work with you and your team to learn the five behaviors and we facilitate conversations within the team around their effective use of each of the behaviors.

    We check the teams' progress every four to six months to ensure adoptions of the behaviors and to coach the members as necessary to instill the behaviors into the team culture.
