Teams and Trust

Droste’s Teams and Trust course combines the framework of Peter Lencioni’s Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ model with the teachings of Charlie Green, the author of three best-selling books about trust. Lencioni emphasizes trust as the first and foundational of the Five Behaviors.  Green’s research, as outlined in Trust-Based Selling and The Trusted Advisor, examines trust as a fundamental element of the manager/employee relationship. The course includes a detailed self-assessment used as a diagnostic tool for leaders to understand their natural styles and how they align with the critical behaviors that build trust. It also prepares leaders to build upon trust to facilitate other key team behaviors.
