Hundreds of coaches, players and executives have read The Five Dysfunctions of a Team but few in professional sports have been able to take full advantage of the principles…until now.  


The Sports Leadership Group has recently developed a process you can trust and is specifically designed for NFL coaches.  This process fits into a coaching staff’s hectic schedule allowing them to absorb, more fully understand and use the proven principles of building a championship sports team culture to have an immediate impact.


The partnership between Pat Richie, founder of The Sports Leadership Group, and Patrick Lencioni, author of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, brings this customized process to the NFL.


This is not an “off the shelf” solution.  It is customized to you and combines our proven models with your unique organization - resulting in alignment from ownership on down.  It is a unique competitive advantage no one can copy. 


Retaining the Sports Leadership Group for an entire season provides a cost-effective means to improve your team on and off the field. A retainer proves the team the basic, follow-up, and on-going assessment. This ensures the ability to retain new disciplines and skills throughout the year when games are on the line and major decisions are being made in the front office.


The greatest fear in bringing an outside speaker into a sports organization is often that the won't be a good fit or be relevant to the audience. Pat Richie is consistently one of the top speakers in the world of sports. His practical messages are engaging and productive. His experience is simply unparalleled. 


Bring the Sports Leadership Group workshop on The Five Dysfunctions of a Team to your organization. In either a half or full-day, this is a powerful learning tool. It is the deal program for professional development.
