Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Accreditation

Accreditation is not required to conduct the program but, due to the nature of the content, many facilitators see accreditation as a way of deepening their skills and preparing for the more challenging team interactions which often occur.  Take a few moments to watch this video and then contact us for more details on this virtual program.




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.


What would you do if a team member begins to cry during a workshop? What would you do if the team leader turned out to be the real problem?

You’re an experienced facilitator, but these scenarios are not common during a typical workplace training. The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team is different. 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.

  • 5-week course plus pre-work
  • Weekly 90-minute instructor-led sessions

You are able to choose between The Five Behaviors Facilitator Accreditation (Everything DiSC) OR The Five Behaviors Facilitator Accreditation (All Types)!  Select the course type that represents the profile you will most often use when facilitating The Five Behaviors program. However, the credential you earn through this course 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.
