The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ Powered by Everything DiSC® Available Now

SAN FRANCISCO, June 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Wiley's workplace learning solutions group has partnered with Patrick Lencioni, the best-selling author of more than 10 books and one of the most sought after business speakers in America, according to the Wall Street Journal. The result of the collaboration is a new tool designed to help organizations with their single most untapped competitive advantage: teamwork. The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™, is an assessment-based facilitation tool and program designed to help professionals and their organizations build cohesive, effective teams.

"We know that employee engagement, workplace learning, and business outcomes are hot topics in HR and organizational development circles," said Barry Davis, Vice-President and General Manager at Wiley. "As part of that, we believe that this is the new model for helping organizations apply what the best minds in business have to teach us about how to run better, more effective organizations," said Davis.

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ is an assessment-based learning program that outlines the essential behaviors to a healthy, well-functioning team: building trust, mastering conflict, achieving commitment, embracing accountability, and focusing on results.

The model was first introduced by Patrick Lencioni, in his best-selling book, "The Five Dysfunctions Of a Team," and has been embraced by organizations of all sizes, from multinational corporations, small businesses, professional sports organizations, houses of worship, and non-profits. Ninety-seven percent of people who have used the model said it will help their team perform better.

In its new iteration as an assessment-based learning model powered by Everything DiSC®, The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™, offers both a team assessment and individual assessment. This combination of actionable, often eye-opening data on the workings of the entire team and each individual, positions teams to more quickly identify and address problems.

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ is now available through a global network of authorized facilitators, coaches and consultants. Learn more at www.fivebehaviors.com.
