Naperville, Illinois (PRWEB) August 07, 2014
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team is a new facilitation program that helps professionals and their organizations learn how to work better and more effectively on teams, leading to a noticeable improvement in morale, productivity and results. The model is based on The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, Patrick Lencioni’s best-selling book that outlines the five behaviors that are essential to a healthy, well-functioning team: building trust, mastering conflict, achieving commitment, embracing accountability, and focusing on results. The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team is the result of a partnership between Wiley’s Workplace Learning Solutions Group, a leading provider of assessment-based learning systems, and Patrick Lencioni.
“We are happy to welcome Doug McKinley and Andy Kindler to the global network of Authorized Partners who are now offering The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team to their clients in the HR, training and organizational development space,” said Barry Davis, Vice President and General Manager of Wiley. “The success of this new program for building cohesive and effective teams depends largely on these highly skilled independent facilitators, coaches, and consultants,” said Davis.
