Bring 15 Years of DiSC Experience to your Organization with Socratyc- Your Home for Everything DiSC

In 2007 Socratyc's co-founder and the President of truDemand, Nicole Alos, became a new sales manager. The move from individual contributor to managing a team was more challenging than she expected. Her team brought different personality types, variations in skill level and methods of communication and learning to the equation. Most striking to Nicole were the vast differences in way her team communicated and responded to her communication style.

At an Association of Training and Development (ATD) conference, she learned about the DiSC methodology. Taking the Classic DiSC assessment helped her understand more about herself as an "Influencer" and what that meant to her team, her manager and the prospects she interacted with. When she rolled out DiSC to her team, they also learned about themselves, how they interact with their team members, their manager and their clients.

As Nicole’s responsibility grew to include national and strategic teams, she used concepts like DiSC, Five Behaviors of Cohesive Teams and Emotional Intelligence. Prior to starting truDemand/Socratyc, Nicole was the VP of Sales/ Customer Success at a Philadelphia-based data insight startup, building cross-functional teams of all experience levels. As the Senior Director of Sales and Business Development at at a Hoboken-based digital marketing team, Nicole successfully built, reorganized, relocated and refocused teams across the country. She was also responsible for building national and regional teams for Drexel University Online, tasked with promoting the brand across the country and opening new campuses.

Fast forward to 2015, when her and her husband, Michael Alos, founded truDemand, a sales enablement consulting firm based in Skippack, PA. truDemand helps B2B organizations increase revenue through data driven strategies, sales enablement technologies and coaching. truDemand helps companies by making smarter decisions with the strategies they implement, the tools they use and way leaders lead their teams. Michael and Nicole often used DiSC in their sales process as well as their coaching of Sales, Business Development and Customer Success teams.

In 2018, it only seemed fitting to become an Authorized Everything DiSC Partner, going beyond DiSC Classic to offer teams everywhere the chance to incorporate this concept through DiSC Workplace, DiSC for Managers, DiSC Sales, DiSC Work of Leaders and DiSC 363. Socratyc was born to offer these products, coaching & facilitation
