  • Everything DiSC Productive Conflict

    This profile provides learners with techniques to improve self-awareness around conflict behaviors.

  • The 5 Behaviours of A Cohesive Team™

    This is a unique learning experience that helps people discover what it takes to achieve the ultimate competitive advantage of teamwork. This program helps teams understand how, as a team, they score on the key components of The Five Behaviors model: trust, conflict, commitment, accountability and results. Do they trust one another; can they engage in conflict around ideas; will they commit to decisions; do they hold one another accountable once there is a clear plan of action; and do they all focus on achieving collective, desired results?

  • Everything DiSC® Sales

    Learn about what the key priorities are, where you should focus your energy in the sales process as well as what your strengths and challenges are as a sales person. This also helps salespeople connect better with their clients by understanding their DiSC sales style, understanding their clients’ buying styles and adapting their sales style to meet their clients’ buying styles.
