Personality Styles and Communication Using DiSC

This workshop focuses on developing greater self-awareness and stronger communication skills. The workshop is based on the DiSC Behavior Model, which groups behavioral responses into four clusters. This self-scoring behavioral learning instrument is a proven road map to interpersonal communications and teamwork. Prior to the workshop, you will complete the 10 minute online assessment. Kathy Ball-Toncic, CPCC will provide a background on different DiSC behavioral styles and help you understand and learn from your own profile. The workshop uses content and interactive exercises to help participants understand differences and how best to leverage their own style when dealing with others who may have a different style. There will be lots of practical and actionable strategies for communicating, influencing, and collaborating more effectively with colleagues, bosses or in work teams or even family and friends.
