Testimonials for Workplace Matters

  • Incorporating Everything DiSC into our two day leadership workshop helped change managers’ attitudes. They realized they can make a difference. You could actually feel a change in the team!

  • Everything DiSC Management

    EVERYTHING DiSC® MANAGEMENT TEACHES MANAGERS HOW TO BRING OUT THE BEST IN EACH EMPLOYEE.

    Everything DiSC® Management is classroom training that uses online pre-work, engaging facilitation with contemporary video, and online follow-up to create a personalized learning experience.

    Participants learn how to read the styles of the people they manage. The result is managers who adapt their styles to manage more effectively.

    EVERYTHING DiSC MANAGEMENT FOCUSES ON:

    Your DiSC Management Style
    Directing and Delegating
    Improving Employee Motivation
    Employee Development
    Working with Your Manager

    MAKE THE PROGRAM WORK FOR YOU

Management-specific personalized content creates an in-depth learning experience.

  • Everything DiSC Work of Leaders

    THE WORK OF LEADERS MADE SIMPLE: VISION, ALIGNMENT, AND EXECUTION.

    Everything DiSC Work of Leaders® is classroom training that uses online pre-work, engaging facilitation with contemporary video, and online follow-up to create a personalized learning experience. Based on best practices, Work of Leaders connects unique leadership styles to real-world demands, generating powerful conversations that provide a clear path for action.

    Everything DiSC Work of Leaders approaches leadership as a one-to-many relationship, as opposed to the one-to-one relationship explored in Everything DiSC® Management. It focuses on tangible steps directed at leading a group or organization toward desired outcomes.

    Using the framework of Vision, Alignment, and Execution, Work of Leaders encourages leaders to understand their own leadership styles and how they impact their effectiveness.

  • Everything DiSC 363 for Leaders

    Everything DiSC 363® for Leaders isn't just any 360. It combines the best of 360s with the simplicity and power of DiSC, plus three personalized strategies for improving leadership effectiveness. The result is a 360° experience that's more productive and satisfying.

    SO HOW IS 363 DIFFERENT?
    First, we took the sting out of 360 feedback. For many leaders, 360s can be a frustrating experience. Open-ended comments can be unfocused and unhelpful and can even derail the learning process. With our exclusive selectable comments feature, CommentSmart, raters can give focused, balanced, constructive feedback—that the leader can actually use.

    Then, we made it easier to understand and use. Everything DiSC 363 for Leaders isn’t a collection of dry spreadsheets and charts without any explanation or story. Clear visuals and a conversational narrative style interpret and explain the data, making it easy to understand and use. Leaders receive next steps for three things they can focus on now.

  • Everything DiSC Follow-Up Consultation

    We can consult with you to plan how your Everything DiSC training can become a part of your culture after the training. Resources include:

    COMPARISON REPORTS: Explore the similarities and differences between two team members on six behavioural continua. Great for on-boarding, new work groups, conflict management, and more! Unlimited access with Everything DiSC profiles.

    GROUP CULTURE REPORTS: Explore the advantages and disadvantages of the group's culture. Discuss its effect on group members, and examine its influence on decision making and risk taking.

    TEAM VIEW: Remind the team of their unique make-up. Post an at-a-glance view of everyone's Everything DiSC maps.

    MYEVERYTHINGDISC.COM: Extend the learning beyond the classroom. Team members can listen to a podcast about their individual DiSC style, dig deeper into DiSC theory, and create Comparison Reports to prepare for a meeting with a new co-worker or project team.
