  • I like how Kirsten puts the onus back on me and asks me difficult, reflective questions. It provides the basis for deep behavioral shifts, rather than quick solutions, to become a more effective leader.

    Mark M.
  • As a result of Kirsten's coaching, I have elevated my leadership presence and high-profile communication. I am much more confident when meeting with Senior leaders of my company. Kirsten strikes a unique balance between careful listening, great questions and sharing of her wealth of experience and ideas.

  • Everything DiSC© Work of Leaders

    The Everything DiSC© Work of Leaders profile reveals your dominant leadership style and how it impacts your effectiveness with your team. The framework of "Vision--Alignment--Execution" is the result of a four-year research and development effort that ​analyzed and distilled the work of prominent leadership researchers. Leadership best practices were identified as a result of input from more than 300 subject-matter experts at over 150 organizations. ​Your personalized leadership assessment includes ratings on these 18 critical behaviors that impact leadership effectiveness.

  • Everything DiSC© 363 Work of Leaders

    This 360º report combines the best of 360ºs with the simplicity and power of DiSC©, plus three personalized strategies for improving your leadership effectiveness. The result is a 360° experience that's more productive, satisfying, and positive. Because the raters select amongst pre-defined comments, they can give focused, balanced, constructive feedback—that you as the leader can actually understand and implement. I have found this report to be head and shoulders above 360ºs created internally by corporations because the insights are more actionable and less painful.

  • The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ Program

    The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ has a simple goal: To facilitate a learning experience that helps professionals and their organizations discover what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team. The Five Behaviors™ profile, which provides both individual and team feedback, is grounded in the model described in The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, the internationally best-selling leadership fable by Patrick Lencioni. With this program, participants will learn how, as a team, they score on the key components of the model: Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results. Additionally, the program is powered by Everything DiSC® and All Types™, personality models that help individuals understand themselves and others better. Using their profiles, team members can create a better, stronger team.

    The program can be customized to meet the needs of your team and time constraints (one-day, three days or six half-days).

  • Everything DiSC© Productive Conflict

    Everything DiSC© Productive Conflict helps learners improve self-awareness around conflict behaviors. Rather than focus on a step-by-step process for conflict resolution, Everything DiSC© Productive Conflict provides learners with techniques to identify destructive behaviors and effectively reframe the situation. With highly personalized content, the workshop features an exploration of DiSC© in a conflict context, provides an opportunity for participants to explore their destructive conflict responses, and offers learners a method for making more productive choices in their response to conflict.
