The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team – Facilitator Accreditation

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team – Facilitator Accreditation
Based on Patrick Lencioni’s New York Times best-seller, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team


The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Facilitator Accreditation is a blended-learning course that will help you hone your skills as a consultant and facilitator of this very powerful team-improvement program.


The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team is different than a typical workplace training. 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, credential and expertise in using The Five Behaviors model and accompanying course material. Participants will learn to navigate unexpected and challenging conversations and develop instincts for when to stick to the agenda and when to improvise, when to let a debate play out and when to cut it short.

Program Includes:

  • 5-week course plus pre-work
  • Weekly 90-minute instructor-led sessions
  • Access to learning resources online
  • Access to The Five Dysfunctions of a Team eBook

Facilitator Accreditation will be granted upon completion of the course and passing of the accompanying exam. Accreditation is valid for two years at which point you have the option to renew.

The Five Behaviors program incorporates the use one of two personality assessments: Everything DiSC and All Types (MBTI).  You are able to select the course type that represents the personality assessment you will most often use when facilitating The Five Behaviors program. Keep in mind, the credential you earn accredits you as a trained facilitator of The Five Behaviors program, regardless of the personality profile. Your accreditation does not dictate which profile you can use.

Start your journey toward building your confidence and competence in effectively delivering The Five Behaviors program!
