Taking Flight with DISC Communication Profiles

Lunch is served at 11:30 am.
Class begins at Noon.

The Taking Flight with DISC training program is a refreshing, reimagined approach to traditional personality styles workshops. The program is built around four key concepts: self- awareness, social awareness, flexibility, and culture. While the most self-aware people are the most successful people, those who can read others and adapt to meet their needs are even more so. This session teaches the DISC styles so individuals can develop new ways of treating others while being true to themselves.

Participants will discover how they unconsciously impose their style on others and sometimes even try to change the people around them because after all, “my way is the right way.” The exercises and discussions help them understand the needs, tendencies, motivators, and fears of the people in their lives. We then channel that awareness into action by providing the skills to flexibly adapt to others by anticipating their needs and displaying the right behavior at the right time. Participants will also learn how to apply the four styles to improving team dynamics and organizational culture.

The Taking Flight with DISC Session will help participants to:
  • Deeply understand their own style through the Taking Flight with DISC profile
  • Quickly read the styles of others and instantly flex to meet their needs
  • Tap into their natural gifts to capitalize on their strengths
  • Avoid overusing their strengths so they don’t become liabilities
  • Infuse the four styles into their organizational culture so they are used every day
  • Build stronger relationships, communicate more effectively, become empowering leaders, and co-create a more engaging and productive work environment
Target Audience: Project Managers with 3 to 7 years of experience, support staff or anyone interested in moving into a project management role or in obtaining fundamental project documentation skills.
