  • I sincerely feel that I have benefited from your DiSC course. Like you, I feel very strongly that everyone has responsibility in all aspects of our lives to reduce stress and negative conflicts, for ourselves and everyone else around else around us. This matter has a very real and direct effect on our physical and mental health and that of others.

  • Conflict Management

    With Everything DiSC, employees learn that a single situation can have very different interpretations when seen from different employee perspectives. Employees learn that each of us have different triggers that create desire and interest as well as those that drive fear and suspicion. Learning which behaviors build bridges in our relationships and which behaviors build walls is a powerful experience and foundation on which employees can learn to adapt their own behaviors accordingly.

  • Leadership Development

    It's often been said that employees don't leave their companies, employees leave their managers. With Everything DiSC, leaders learn what behaviors foster positive workplace environments for collaboration and innovation and what behaviors trigger employee disengagement. Through self-reflection, discussion of workplace scenarios, and action planning, leaders develop skills for creating positive work environments for individuals and teams. For individual development focus, provide leaders with the opportunity for a 360 assessment of specific skill strengths and developmental areas. Combining all leadership reports, your organization gains a development map to ensure a comprehensive leadership curriculum plan focuses on the common strengths and developmental areas for all leaders.

  • Sales Training

    Recognizing the buying styles of customers enables sales people to adjust selling skills and presentations accordingly and, often, in the moment! Some customers prefer analytical approaches, studying written documentation to gain in-depth information. Others prefer to secure the recommendations of your stellar client list and determine their reactions and results from the use of your products and services. Still others need reassurance in the form of personal guarantees or extended purchase warranties. Adjusting to the demands of the selling process and the demands of the customer are much easier when salespersons learn to identify the four buying styles and how to adjust their own selling style accordingly. Result: Stress goes down; Sales go up!
