DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

DISC Assessment For Teams

As a certified DISCFlex facilitator, I will lead your team through an understanding of their assessment results, as well as activities and exercises to deepen their self awareness and improve collaboration. Many leadership teams, in particular, find the DISC assessment a very effective way to improve collaboration and communication between team members. 

 

Some benefits of the DISC assessment and training are:

  • Increased awareness of leadership style, strengths and weaknesses
  • Improved teamwork and collaboration
  • More effective communication between team members and managers
  • Concrete plans and steps to be a more effective communicator and team member.
