DISC: Understanding Your Behavioral Style

This is a past event.

Sometimes it is difficult to understand why two reasonable people can respond so differently to exactly the same event. We tend to chalk it up to difficult behavior, but, more often than not the behavior is not difficult, just different. And many of those differences are based on our personality styles. The DISC Model offers insights on communication preferences and tendencies, and provides guidance on how to maximize your potential results on a team, and minimize potential conflicts. This class will help you understand you own personality style and how it influences your behavior. You’ll also learn why people with different styles may not communicate and behave the same way you do.

Key Takeaways

  • Understand their own behavioral style, and communication tendencies and preferences
  • Recognize the Four Behavioral Styles using DISC
  • Adapt personal communication style based on how others prefer to receive information
  • Recognize personal behavioral & communication strengths
  • Recognize potential personal behavioral & communication pitfalls
  • Create Personal Action Plan for improved communication results
