Course Description

In this highly interactive two day session participants will be introduced to the widely used psychometric model of DiSC to assess and understand the interaction of human behaviour. The participants will learn a three-step application process to effectively use DiSC to increase their understanding of self and others to enable them to build lasting effective relationships in the workplace. Participants will learn how their behaviour is interpreted by others and the resulting impact of their behaviours, how to diagnose others through observation of behaviours and application of the DiSC model, and how to adapt behaviours to better interact with others and achieve better results and build relationships. 

On day two, participants will explore elements that shape their view of the world and how this can create barriers with others. This includes understanding personal values and motivators and how others differ. Participants will learn how to build greater trust and credibility with others in addition to assessing how effective they are at developing more meaningful relationships with those who are important to them. Approaching situations and others from a win/win mind-set and by developing assertive behaviours will be addressed. In addition, communication challenges will be explored with an emphasis on effective listening as a way to foster greater understanding and collaboration.
