An Introduction to Everything DiSC

You give us a day…and we’ll give you eye opening self-knowledge!

Ever wondered why you just ‘click’ with some people – even strangers, when you first meet them? Yet others, even those you’ve worked alongside for years, feel more distant and harder to connect wth?

Everything DiSC is an easy to use, personal learning tool that measures an individual’s preferences and tendencies based on the DiSC® model. This simple yet powerful model describes four basic styles: D, i, S, and C, and is the foundation of the Everything DiSC suite of profiles. It provides a system which can help shed light on why we get on well with some people, yet find others more tricky or awkward to connect with.

In joining this workshop, you'll receive your own individual profile with personalised insights that deepen understanding of both yourself and others, making workplace interactions more enjoyable and effective.
