Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ Certification

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 Behavior model and accompanying course material. Participants will also learn to navigate unexpected and challenging conversations during Five Behaviors sessions.

Continued participation for any learner in the course is at Wiley’s discretion. Automatic suspension occurs in the case of unacceptable behavior. Suspension includes not being able to sit for the final exam. Unacceptable behavior includes rudeness, inappropriate comments, failure to attend, and failure to participate. In advance of the suspension being issued, course faculty will contact the Partner who registered the learner. If a suspended learner wishes to make-up missed work, he or she must retake the entire course due to its collaborative nature.
