The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Preview, February 3
Teamwork is essential for success—more than anything else it’s what gives an organization a competitive advantage. Yet most companies suffer from team dysfunction. The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team acknowledges this and helps to turn around teams so they can collaborate on achieving organizational goals. The program offers an assessment-based learning experience that reveals what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team. The program helps team members learn to work together more efficiently and effectively in five key areas:

  • Trust (promoting genuine transparency and honesty)
  • Conflict (engaging in unfiltered, constructive debate of ideas)
  • Commitment (offering opinions and ideas to commit to decisions)
  • Accountability (holding one another accountable as a result of commitment)
  • Results (building upon trust, conflict, commitment, and accountability to achieve results)

This preview introduces the content of The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team and the assessment that it’s built around. You’ll learn how you can utilize the Five Behaviors model to build productive, high-functioning teams in your organization.

Identifying and Developing Emerging Leaders Webinar, April 14

Strategic HR Competencies Workshop, July 24
In recent decades the HR profession has shifted tremendously, and the skills required to be successful in HR today are much different than a generation ago. For more than 25 years the Human Resource Competency Study (HRCS) has been researching the competencies that HR professionals need to master in order to be strategic contributors to their organizations, and in 2012 the HRCS released an update list: strategic positioner, credible activist, capacity builder, change champion, HR innovator and integrator, and technology proponent. In this daylong workshop we’ll look at each of these six competencies, helping to define each of them, exploring how participants can develop them further, and considering opportunities to apply this knowledge on the job. The program includes a 360-degree assessment that will help participants measure how well they’ve mastered the competencies as well as the influence they have with key constituents across their organization.

Strength in Numbers: Why Group Coaching Works Webinar, August 11
More and more organizations are using group coaching as a tool to develop their employees. Group coaching can be used to support employees in a leadership development program, peers who are going through a shared experience (e.g., newly promoted managers), employees who need to build broader and more diverse internal networks, or individuals from the same work group or function who are trying to become a high-performing team. This approach provides an opportunity for a small group of individuals (typically around five to eight) to benefit from the guidance and support of a professional coach while also learning from one another.

In this webinar we’ll share when group coaching tends to work best, how group coaching should be structured, considerations for creating ownership, and tips to ensure group coaching has a lasting impact.
