This is for you if you are responsible for investing your company’s training budget.

As a manager I spent lots of money on training programmes for my teams. The trainers were great folks. My teams loved the training.

But, what if there was a way to guarantee that your investment in training your leaders and managers actually produced a positive return?

Would you be interested to know about it??? Well, if you are read on……..

Training Programmes for My Teams

What is the Building a Cohesive Team Workshop?

The workshop is an assessment-based learning experience that helps individuals and organisations reveal what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team in the most approachable, competent, and effective way possible. The workshop has one simple goal – to improve team effectiveness and productivity through the understanding and application of The Five Behaviours by focusing on:

  1. Building trust
  2. Engaging in positive conflict
  3. Committing to team decisions
  4. Holding each other accountable
  5. Focusing on achieving collective results

How is the Building a Cohesive Team Workshop structured?

Based on Patrick Lencioni’s bestselling book The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, and developed by Wiley, this accredited two-day, highly interactive workshop identifies and addresses the five biggest challenges faced by teams in organisations; an absence of trust, not engaging in productive conflict, a lack of commitment, not being held accountable and not achieving collective results.

The Building a Cohesive Team workshop includes a DiSC behavioural-style assessment for each team member, with the behavioural “style” of everyone on the team presented. It also measures the team’s score against the five behaviours. The workshop then explores each behaviour in turn, concluding with action plans formulated by the team for the team.

Good leaders and managers are critical to the effective operation of any business. They need to have the competence and the confidence to lead those working for them.



Without the necessary skills, the transition from being a team member to leader or manager can be a difficult one. While moving up the ladder in an organisation, it is essential to have the necessary skills.


Presentation Skills

As presenting in one form or another has become part of our business life, the ability to deliver a powerful and influential presentation is increasingly a beneficial skill to have; whether in a formal or informal setting.



In today’s challenging business environment a strong sales team is one of the most important tools which helps a company to stay ahead of the game. A competent, well-trained salesperson can positively influence a potential customer. 


Customer Service

Good customers are hard enough to find. Don’t give them away to your competition! In today’s very competitive environment, customers have a wider choice of who to select to work with and buy from. 


Building High Performance Teams

A high-functioning team can achieve its potential, resulting in a healthier, more productive organisation. As team development specialist Patrick Lencioni says, “The true measure of a team is that it accomplishes the results it sets out to achieve”.

Cohesive Team Workshop Programme

The guys are really buzzing about last week and we have had comments like ‘best course I have ever been on’, ‘best two days we’ve spent as a team’ and ‘great to understand myself and others’. So, from me, a huge thank you.

Karen Taylor

The workshop was brilliant. It helped the team to depersonalise conflict and to understand why we struggle to make decisions. I would have no hesitation in recommending this course to anyone needing to understand behaviour.

Ahmed al Bassiony

I never thought a training course could make such a big and fast difference to the way I think.

Neil Stevenson

Their programme wasn’t an off-the-shelf solution. It has been developed to understand our issues as a company and develop the right training solutions to meet our needs for growth.
