Facilitation & Workshops

Workshops-02The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ provides the organizational development workshops Minnesota businesses trust to help facilitate the growth of truly cohesive and effective teams. The Five Behaviors profile, which provides both individual and team feedback, is grounded in the model described in The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, the internationally best-selling leadership fable by Patrick Lencioni. With this program, participants will learn how, as a team, they score on the key components of the model: trust, conflict, commitment, accountability, and results. Additionally, the program is powered by  Everything DiSC®,  a model that helps individuals to understand themselves and others better.

"It was great to have a deeper self realization of my strengths and challenge areas. I especially like that I now have a better understanding of how to better communicate and work with the people around me because I understand the other personality styles."

Jina Duchnowski , Burnsville Chamber of Commerce

"Our company just completed the Workplace DISC training where our employees learned to understand and appreciate the styles of the people they work with. I was amazed by the effective way Patty presented the material to reinforce program theory. What proved this was my observation of the employees in the training. I saw a reserved, cautious group become comfortable in their skin and proactively reach out to effectively communicate with those whom they normally would avoid. I would strongly recommend this program to any business interested in building their team’s synergy!"Judy Coker, Brandspring Solutions
