Multiply the value of this seminar with a DISC Assessment

Everyone has his or her own communication style. DISC is a simple model for understanding communication styles and adapting your style to more effectively communicate with others.

Prior to the seminar, each participant completes a survey and receives a 20-30 page report including:

  • An in-depth analysis of his/her communication style
  • Personalized communication tips based on his/her assessment
  • An action plan for improving his/her effectiveness as a communicator

The personalized reports, and group interaction based on the assessments, add tremendous depth to the seminar.

Please visit our DISC Training Workshops website for more information about how we can make your training program more effective with personality assessments.
