Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 27, 2015
Sonya Shelton, CEO, of Executive Leadership Consulting, is now among an exclusive group of independent facilitators, coaches, and consultants authorized to provide The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ to their clients, after successfully completing the required application, authorization, and training process.
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 Executive Leadership Consulting 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.
"Our partnership with Wiley on The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team along with their Everything DiSC® programs are an excellent complement to our aligned leadership model of One Vision, One Voice and One Direction," said, Shelton. "We look forward to leveraging these programs as we partner with our clients to reduce complexity and create change through leadership and organizational alignment."
