Speaker: Susan Cortese Abstract: Although we all experience transitions emotionally, our reactions may be quite different. Using a psychometric model to understand these differences may go a long way to facilitating change and managing people more effectively. The DiSC model is constructed on two behavioral dimensions which form four basic profiles. Each profile, or behavioral prototype, describes preferred environments, communication styles and workplace relationships. The profiles also indicate greatest fears, motivators, values and attitudes toward change. In this webinar, you will learn about the DiSC model and how it can help you relate better to the people around you once you identify their style preference.

About DiSC: The DiSC system provides a meaningful, non-judgmental framework for looking at human behaviour. A personalised report produced upon assessment creates better understanding of one’s unique behavioural patterns. This greater awareness can in turn be utilised to create an environment more suited to promoting personal development and success, simultaneously helping people appreciate the motivational environments required by others. Widely recognised as a springboard for building a focused, aligned workforce, DiSC has become a key component in the employee development strategies of leading organisations worldwide.

DiSC can foster team building in an organisation by:

• improving communication and greater co-operation between employees

• promoting the appreciation of differences and enhancing individual and team performance

• identifying the “DiSC culture” of a particular group and thereby understanding better their prevalent characteristics, needs and limitations

• identifying the individuals that could assist a group to achieve specific goals.
