  • The 5 Behaviours of A Cohesive Team™

    This is a unique learning experience that helps people discover what it takes to achieve the ultimate competitive advantage of teamwork. This program helps teams understand how, as a team, they score on the key components of The Five Behaviors model: trust, conflict, commitment, accountability and results. Do they trust one another; can they engage in conflict around ideas; will they commit to decisions; do they hold one another accountable once there is a clear plan of action; and do they all focus on achieving collective, desired results?
