About Us

Kris Ritter

With more than 15 years of HR Consulting experience working with small to medium sized businesses, I know there isn't a "one size fits all" approach to making improvements and solving workplace challenges. I pride myself on bringing a high-touch approach to helping develop individuals and teams through increased awareness, active engagement and productive communication.

Having worked primarily with the non-profit sector, I also recognize the need to find tailored solutions that have lasting impact without breaking the budget! As an Everything DiSC® Authorized Partner, I am happy to partner with human resource professionals who prefer to facilitate sessions with their own internal learning & development staff rather than working with an outside consultant. In these cases, I can act as your silent partner to bounce ideas, talk through the different Everything DiSC® and The ​Five ​Behaviors ​of ​a ​Cohesive ​Team™ tools available and be a point of contact for any questions that arise.

  • Everything DiSC 363® for Leaders

    For many leaders, 360s can be a frustrating experience. At best, open-ended comments can be unfocused and unhelpful. At worst,they’re a way to anonymously take a jab at a colleague. And ultimately, they can even derail the learning process. With our exclusive selectable comments feature, CommentSmart, raters can give focused, balanced, constructive feedback—that the leader can actually use. This time-saving option allows raters to expand on their ratings by choosing from a list of highly-tested comments.

    Everything DiSC 363 for Leaders combines clear visuals and a conversational narrative style to interpret and explain the data, making the report easy to understand and use. With a lot of 360s, the leader’s response can be, “Now what?” Everything DiSC 363 for Leaders answers that question by giving leaders their next steps with the three things they can focus on now—strategies to improve effectiveness that can be put into action immediately.

  • Everything DiSC® Management

    The Everything DiSC Management Profile uses a research-validated learning model to create a highly personalized learner experience. The profile is management-specific with in-depth information, including tips, strategies, and action plans to help managers become more effective. Includes access to unlimited follow-up reports.

    EVERYTHING DiSC MANAGEMENT PROFILE FOCUSES ON:
    • Your DiSC Management Style
    • Directing and Delegating
    • Motivating
    • Developing Others
    • Working with Your Manager

    Participants learn about their strengths and challenges as managers and how to adapt to meet the needs of the people they manage—making them more effective managers.

  • Everything DiSC Work of Leaders® Profile

    Using the framework of Vision, Alignment, and Execution, Everything DiSC Work of Leaders® Profile encourages leaders to understand their own leadership behaviors and how these behaviors impact their effectiveness. Rich, compelling narrative adds depth to the data and strong visuals support the learning process by illustrating key messages.

    Consistently thought-provoking, Work of Leaders stimulates fresh conversations and perspectives
    regardless of the leader’s knowledge or experience. It’s an opportunity for leaders at all levels of learning to reflect on how they approach each step of their work. In addition, Work of Leaders encourages reflection and discussion about the team and the organization.
