CPD credit: 3  

Free ebook: Tips to Better Manage Distributed Teams: Using the DiSC Behavioural Profile With Registration.

A professional must learn how to communicate in a way that has impact, meaning, and will get the job done. This doesn’t mean texting, e-mailing, or instant messaging more often. What is does mean is learning to flex your communication style effectively to get the job done.

Learning to flex begins with an understanding of yourself and how we prefer to interact (temperament) with the environment and the people around us.

This is the premise of the DiSC Personality Profiling seminar. An innovative approach to behavioral insight, DiSC not only uncovers unique personality traits of those profiled, but gives you a practical solutions for interacting most effectively with different behavioral styles.

This interactive session will provide you with the skills and use various methodologies such as video, case studies and group activities to engage participants and reinforce the learning.

At the end of the sessions the participants will be able to:

  • Describe how to communicate with other DiSC dimensions to work more effectively
  • Develop strategies for identifying other styles whether they are face to face or virtual
  • Learn to adapt our behavior to meet the needs of others

Our Clients Say it Best

Thank you for presenting to our recent Project Management Forum. The insights you offered were incisive, and sometimes shocking. It was a wake-up call to realize the extent to which we are impacted by virtual team interaction. We used to think of this solely in terms of team members in India. Now we understand that it’s also members as close as the next floor in the same building.

Your tips on how to engage these remote participants were also valuable.

I recommend your services to anyone who relies on virtual teams to achieve their business objectives. Thanks again for your contribution to our successful event.
