Hello! I'm Joanne Cumiskey of Vision Quest Leadership LLC where we're committed to advancing leadership excellence in the workplace. VQL works with individuals, teams, and organizations to address their most pressing workplace issues like communication, conflict, resistance to change, low productivity, or disengagement. Our suite of Everything DiSC® products helps leaders and team members alleviate these challenges to build strong and vibrant cultures.

Additionally, our services include consulting, design, and delivery of uniquely customized leadership development programs. We also offer micro and e-learning options, workshop facilitation, succession planning, executive coaching, and more.

Let's begin with a conversation to first understand and diagnose your situation. Then together we'll determine the best blend of Everything DiSC® options to address your immediate and long-term needs. With a proven track record in leadership and an “award-winning” formula for success, we are eager to work with you to advance leadership in your organization.

Our Solutions

  • Leadership Development Extends to Teams

    Everything DiSC® Management is initially used in ongoing leadership development programs to help leaders develop stronger, more productive interaction skills with their direct reports. Team members are then invited to participate in Everything DiSC® Workplace to reinforce the cornerstone principles being modeled by the leaders. Finally, leaders and team members are given the option to attend Everything DiSC® Productive Conflict together. With positive experiences generated in the first two workshops, conflict sessions fill quickly. A sense of trust and safety prevails while everyone expands their self-awareness and recognition of behaviors that lead to either constructive or destructive conflict. The three-prong approach with Management, Workplace, and Productive Conflict helps leaders establish a culture of respect and appreciation for all. Behavior styles are embraced for building more effective relationships and improving the quality of workplace interactions.
