What you'll learn in this communication skills training:

Have you ever noticed that there are some people we just seem to get along with really easily, and then there are others that just rub us up the wrong way? We find ourselves talking at cross purposes & arguments & misunderstanding seem to erupt from nowhere. 

Often, what’s at the root of this are our individual behavioral styles – how we see the world, what drives us & how we prefer to be communicated with.

This workshop provides an introduction to the DISC behavioral style approach & explores the 4 main behavioral styles we see around us in our everyday lives – how to spot them & how to work with them.

It’s all about flexibility – learning how to adapt our own personal style to be more effective in our communications with others, getting an insight into what motivates & frustrates them, and simply understanding better what make them tick.

Knowing where the red flags are & learning how to avoid them is a great first step in reducing those unnecessary misunderstandings & tensions that all too often lead to arguments & relationship meltdown.

By the end of this workshop you’ll be able to:

  • Understand the 4 DISC behavioral styles – their strengths & their challenges
  • Be more aware of your own style & how it impacts
  • Pick up some tips on how to spot styles in others
  • Learn how to bring out the best in those around you based on their style 

This will be a fun, interactive session based on theory but with practical application for use in your everyday life – at home as well as at work! 

The workshop is particularly suitable for:

  • Managers & team leaders
  • Team members
  • Business Owners
  • Business professionals
  • Sales Teams
  • Anyone looking to make a positive impact while networking

About the Instructor:

I am certified in DISC & have been using it for 3 years to build teams, and develop leadership & management skills at all levels in organizations. We have run variations of this as in-person workshops - both public access and in-house. I have been running online group training events for 4 months, prior to the current situation.

Materials Needed to Participate Fully:

  • None

    • Virtual Class FAQ

      What will be included in my Virtual Class package?

      One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.

      How many people is my purchase good for?

      Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!

      Will I need anything from home to use in the class?

      You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.

      Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?

      Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.

      Do I have to show my video or speak during class?

      While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!

      Remote Learning

      This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

      Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

      Rebecca Maxwell was very informative. She made the class very engaging and was open to answering all questions. I left the class feeling I definitely learned important attributes of disc and a basic understanding of how to apply it. I do wish the course was longer! But overall it was great!

      Very interesting and informative. The subject matter was laid out in a clear and precise manner and the smaller group exercise helped to further clarify the material.
