  • Emotional Intelligence and the Everything DiSC Workplace Assessment

    Emotional Intelligence is a powerful concept that can help anyone and everyone become more effective in every aspect of their lives. However, most people in the training world lack the educational and clinical background necessary to bring depth to this topic. As a result, most training on Emotional Intelligence comes across as mile wide and an inch deep.

    The Everything DiSC Workplace Assessment, combined with Dr. Tom's in-depth insights and wisdom, help his participants gain a deeper, more meaningful appreciation for and understanding of Emotional Intelligence. In fact, all of the Everything DiSC tools provide participants with a immediate gains to two key aspects of Emotional Intelligence: Self-Awareness and Social Awareness.

  • Productive Conflict

    Moving through conflict can be very challenging for organizations. Unresolved conflict often festers and can stop an organization dead in its tracks. Unfortunately, most conflict resolution strategies don't address the roadblocks that existing resentment presents to moving forward. By combining the Everything DiSC Productive Conflict assessment and workshop with his own unique approach to assessing and addressing the damage that past conflict has done in an organization, Dr. Kalous helps organizations heal from the past while giving them a path forward that keeps destructive conflict from returning to your organization.
