Testimonials For The Personal Coach

  • Going through the DiSC workshop has been, by far, the best experience. It has helped me in my professional and personal life to see things more clearly through an understanding of others’ personalities.

    Debbie Browne, Director of Operations, Timmins Financial Inc.
  • Debriefing the DiSC profile was a great experience! I was surprised at how accurate it was. I have known these things deep down but I chose instead to believe what others said about me and my capabilities, keeping buried who I really am and how I truly like to behave.

    Amy Phillips, Administrative Assistant, ClearRock Financial
  • DiSC is a valuable tool for our team. We have been able to learn how to better communicate with each other, which has improved our work environment.

    Marielle Julien, Office Manager, Vocari Financial Solutions Inc.
  • It is so cool to review this DiSC profile again and learn more about personalities. Comparing myself side by side with my team provides great tips for me.

    Sean Peach, Financial Advisor, Sean Peach Financial Services Inc.
