Communication is more than talking and listening. Genuine communication requires a deep understanding of another person’s perspective.

This course uses a behavioral assessment called DiSC© to help people understand each other on a more fundamental level. This program helps participants develop specific communication strategies that build a culture of trust and collaboration.

After this class, you will be able to:
  • Understand the DiSC© model of human behavior and develop an appreciation for personal differences
  • Evaluate their unique DiSC© assessment to understand how their behavior is interpreted by others
  • Gain an understanding for why their direct reports, peers and boss act the way they do
  • Recognize the distinct styles of communication that are effective and ineffective with each style
  • Develop specific communication strategies that build a culture of trust and collaboration
