I took the EQ-i 2.0® assessment with Gale Mote because I wanted to learn more about myself as a team member and a leader. I wanted to be able to look at myself, my behaviors and decisions to see how I can work to personally develop myself to be a better version of me.
The assessment really opened my eyes regarding how I interact with others and how I make decisions. Gale gave me exercises and materials that I can leverage to improve my leadership skills.
I believe strongly in the power of the EQ-i 2.0 assessment and the guidance Gale provides. In fact, we offered the assessment to women in our MBA program who are participating in our new Dore-Tippie MBA Women’s Leadership Program!

I just wanted to let you know personally how much I enjoyed and learned from your course. I can feel a dedication and commitment to change that I have never felt here before. You are an inspiring and intelligent presenter. I have never attended classes or seminars in which I felt like such an active participant and that I didn't yawn through at least half the course. It was an honor to become acquainted with and be inspired by a person who wholeheartedly embraces the values she presents. Thank you so much for being a part of the coming change at Metalcraft.

Gale, I've had my share of courses, seminars, etc., in TQM, JIT, TDC, Leadership (military), etc., and none could hold a candle to yours. This has been world class. —Employee, Carmun International



Your Team Can Do Better.

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ is an assessment-based learning experience that helps individuals and organizations reveal what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team in the most approachable, competent, and effective way possible. Powered by Everything DiSC®, the profiles help participants understand their own DiSC® styles. Bringing together everyone’s personalities and preferences to form a cohesive, productive team takes work, but the payoff can be huge—for individuals, the team, and the organization.


There are many reasons teams fail. There’s one proven way to help them succeed.

What does this program do?

The program helps teams understand how, as a team, they score on the key components of The Five Behaviors model: trust, conflict, commitment, accountability, and results. Each individual on the team will also understand their own personality style and their team members styles, based on the DiSC® model: D: Dominance, i: Influence, S: Steadiness, and C: Conscientiousness, and how their style contributes to the team’s overall success.

Who is it for?

The program is designed exclusively for intact teams and work groups. The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team harnesses the power of Everything DiSC and the clarity and simplicity of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team model.

How does it work?

The Five Behaviors Model is used to help team members learn to work together more efficiently and effectively and become a more cohesive team. A productive, high-functioning team:

Makes better, faster decisions
Taps into the skills and opinions of all members
Avoids wasting time and energy on politics, confusion, and destructive conflict
Avoids wasting time talking about the wrong issues and revisiting the same topics over and over again because of a lack of buy-in
Creates a competitive advantage
Is more fun to be on!
