About Us

Cathy Noice Graham
Everything DiSC Expert

I love making light bulbs go off in my client's heads. The "I never thought of that before" kind of look. What is actually happening is insight. I've helped you uncover something you never realized before. You've made a new connection in your brain. Once you have that insight? You are compelled to take action. When I've created that ah-hah moment? I get goosebumps.

When I work with teams I use the methodology by CRR Global called ORSC™ Organization and Relationship Systems Coaching. There are some incredible tools that create a new understanding on the team. I create a deep empathy between the team members. When you physically "stand in someone else's shoes" it creates a whole new awareness for the team. And once again, I get goosebumps.

I am a speaker for several education companies and an instructor at Duke University. I'm also a certified facilitator for several companies including Franklin Covey and DDI. I've had incredible success with Franklin Covey's 5 Choices for Extraordinary Productivity. The average improvement in productivity for my classes is a 50% jump in productivity. 50%! Again with the goosebumps.

I am a devotee of Everything DiSC and 5 Behaviors of the Cohesive Team. I've been a Wiley Partner for over 5 years. Wiley is constantly improving their products and they are on the cutting edge of making their assessments accessible, innovative and user friendly. They have a wide variety of assessments and I love delivering them or helping others set up a platform to use them. When I create self awareness in others? I get goosebumps.

I love reading books. I take my reading, my travel ,my extensive coaching, and human resource experience and incorporate the ideas into the workplace with my globally read blog. Check in weekly to find out how to be heard in the workplace or how to hone your leadership skills. http://workplacenavigator.com

Testimonials for Workplace Navigator

  • While working with her I successfully changed from an un-filling position to a leadership role that embraces my strengths and is more fulfilling. Cathy’s approach was articulate, provided new perspectives and guided me to put the framework in place to achieve the results I wanted.

    Jeanie Y. Mulhern, MHROD, SPHR, SHRM - SCPChief People Officer
  • While we learned more about ourselves, we also learned more about each other. She created a safe environment where we could share our weaknesses and areas in which we needed to work without judgement. Our team learned each other well enough through this workshop to navigate the sometimes daunting task that group work can be.

    Hope Fields, MBADirector of Alumni Relations at the University of Mount Olive
  • Cathy recently lead a team building session using the DISC profile at Heritage Farms Cheshire Pork. She did an outstanding job facilitating by encouraging folks show vulnerability and sharing insights of each personality types. Our team walked out of the session more cohesive and aware of one another. I highly recommend working with Cathy Graham!

    Jennifer EmersonSenior Director of Supply Chain - Rico Products Co. Inc.
  • Cathy did a wonderful job as facilitator for our leadership Wayne class. She takes the ideas of the DiSC profile and team behaviors and brings them to life. Her ability to get the team engaged during the workshop says a lot about her skills. I would recommend her for your next team building event.

    Jeremy MayMarket Leader at BB&T
  • Cathy Graham facilitated an activity for our annual Coach’s Circle to help attendees understand different behavioral styles. She was masterful at facilitation-and the end result was attendees not only “learned about” the different behavioral styles…her activity forced ourselves in the shoes of the other behavior styles and created understanding.

Our Solutions

  • Everything DiSC Workplace Assessment - Lands Work

    Purpose: 120 minute team facilitation using ORSC methodologies with those familiar with their DiSC style.
    Design the Team Alliance:
    • Creating a culture or atmosphere - the advantage is that if the circumstances change, the atmosphere the team designed will hold together (i.e. if the project changes that atmosphere of collaboration continues).
    • Sharing responsibility - this is what the team members agree to take responsibility for to be counted on for. Co-responsibility and accountability create empowered and empowering systems.
    Lands work :
    • The point of Lands Work™ is for individuals to stretch into a new awareness about how other people perceive reality. This makes it possible for people to evolve not only in their relationships, but also in their individual being. When one can step outside one’s fiercely held positions, culture, and expectations and stand in the shoes of another person in a different reality, then there is the true possibility of personal evolution.

  • Everything DiSC Workplace Profile and Comparison Reports - DiSC Duos

    This is excellent for newly promoted leaders to develop an understanding for how to work with their new direct reports. The new leader and direct report (s) are coached individually using the Everything DiSC Workplace Profile for approximately an hour individually.

    Using the comparison report with the leader and direct report, we view video's of how to adapt to each person's styles. Then we explore the comparison report to determine an action plan on how the pair can work together best and uncover possible stumbling blocks. The session takes about 2 hours. There are then two follow up sessions to keep the pair accountable to their agreed upon actions.
