DiSC is a personal assessment tool used to improve work productivity, teamwork and communication. DiSC is non-judgmental and helps people discuss their behavioral differences. The DiSC model provides a common language that people can use to better understand themselves and to adapt their behaviors with others. This can be within a work team, a sales relationship, a leadership position, or other personal relationships DiSC profiles help you and your team: • Increase your self-knowledge: how you respond to conflict, what motivates you, what causes you stress and how you solve problems • Facilitate better teamwork and minimize team conflict • Develop stronger sales skills by identifying and responding to customer styles • Manage more effectively by understanding the dispositions and priorities of employees and team members • Become more self-knowledgeable, well-rounded and effective leaders Speaker: Tricia Ryan, Focal Point Business Coaching Location: Webinar – national Session 2: Navigating Your Career June 21st 6:00 – 8:00 PM Some people approach their careers with a laser beam focus where all developmental activity is focused and intentional, while others move from one position to another as opportunities present themselves, perhaps without a specific plan. This session reinforces the need to take active, personal responsibility for career planning. Building upon the MBTI in session 1, this session uses tools for identifying and understanding your talents, explores the importance of establishing a positive brand, and equips you to have meaningful and proactive career conversations.
