What is Introduction to DiSC?
This course gives individuals the opportunity to take the DiSC assessment, learn the foundations of the DiSC model and how it can have a profound impact on their communication and working relationships. DiSC® is a personal assessment tool used by more than one million people every year to help improve teamwork, communication, and productivity in the workplace. The Everything DiSC® model provides a common language people can use to better understand themselves and those they interact with—and then use this knowledge to reduce conflict and improve working relationships.

I enjoyed doing the DISC Assessment and facilitation experience with Ryan Williams both for the insight it gave me personally, but also the insight it gave me into professional team dynamics. Of course we all know that as people we think and act differently, but having common language to describe those differences is so helpful. It's also always a good reminder to learn about my own strengths & weaknesses and how that is hurting and helping the teams that I am a part of. I'm excited to have Ryan back in the future to continue to help with team dynamics!
