Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ ONLINE

For Facilitators, Coaches, Trainers and Consultants

Description: You’re an experienced trainer but The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team is not training. It is a facilitated learning event or events for leaders and their teams. Sessions can get heated. Participants can become emotional. The team leader can be defensive. Timelines and scripts can get thrown out the window. As a facilitator, you can influence whether a team sees an uncomfortable moment through or misses out on the opportunity to grow.

This course will help participants gain confidence, credentials and expertise using The Five Behaviors model and accompanying course material. Participants will also learn to navigate unexpected and challenging conversations during Five Behaviors sessions.
