Course Description

Red Pyramid divided into five levels with words in white from top to bottom showing

Today’s organizations are working beyond a single team. Advances in technology are disrupting the market, globalization is forcing a new approach of working, and the teams of the future have never seen this level of diversity. In essence, organizations need to equip their employees to create cohesive teams quickly to enable results. The idea was to create a model that harnesses the Power of Patrick Lencioni’s Five Dysfunctions and adjust it to benefit the individual, who can then disperse the key takeaways throughout their organization.

This is a tool to help individuals better understand, internalize, and apply the principles of The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team® model and to foster communication that can be used throughout an organization.
