Our Solutions

  • 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.

  • Everything DiSC Management

    Everything DiSC Management helps managers learn how to bring out the best in each employee.

    Introduction to Your Management Style:
    Participants discover how their DiSC styles affect their management styles. They explore the influence their style has on how they manage time, make decisions, and approach problems.

    Directing and Delegating:
    Participants learn their strengths and challenges when directing and delegating and how to adjust to fit the needs of the people they manage.

    Motivation:
    Participants discover how their DiSC styles affect the motivation of others and learn to identify and adapt to increase others' motivation.

    Developing Others:
    Participants learn about their natural styles of developing others and discover the development preferences for each DiSC style and how to accommodate them.

    Working with Your Manager: Participants learn to increase their ability to influence and communicate effectively with their manager.

  • Everything DiSC Sales

    This program explores how to interpret others’ behaviour to build stronger, trusting customer relationships.

    Understanding Your DiSC Sales Style
    Participants learn about their DiSC sales style and how personal priorities influence their selling behaviours. They use what they’ve learned about sales priorities in an interviewing activity.

    Recognizing and Understanding Customer Buying Styles
    Participants learn customer mapping, a new way of people-reading. They practice their customer-mapping skills in a competitive video-based activity. They learn about different customer priorities, then use their new skills to identify the buying styles of current customers.

    Adapting Your Sales Style to Your Customer’s Buying Style
    Participants use their DiSC Sales Maps to understand how to navigate from their own styles to those of different types of customers. They role play adapting to their most challenging customer and complete an interaction plan for working with that customer.
