  • Everything DiSC Workplace

    This program is designed to help people build more effective workplace relationships—one relationship at a time. Using DiSC, a powerful yet easy-to-use, research-validated learning model, participants understand and appreciate the styles of the people they interact with. The result is a more engaged, respectful, and productive work environment.

    Discovering Your DiSC Style
    Participants walk through the framework of the DiSC model and learn about their DiSC styles, how their priorities influence their actions, and what motivates and stresses them.

    Understanding Other Styles
    Participants discover their reactions to different DiSC® styles and identify what works for them and what challenges them when interacting with each style. They use the DiSC model to understand the people they work with.

    Building More Effective Relationships
    Participants create strategies and action plan to overcome challenges when dealing with people of all styles.
