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!

This training gives you the ability to better understand what motivates others and how to communicate with them better. It is worth the time and money.
I believe this training will be a catalyst to a new organization! I have never felt like I have understood my staff better. Knowledge is key and having that with your team is invaluable! Ryan is incredible!! He is able to roll with the punches while keeping a very diverse and opinionated team on track! I would participate in his training any day!
Thank you! The training today is in my top 3 workshops of my world in HR, and I’ve been to a lot of them in almost 20 years! Thank you so much, it was very insightful!
Ryan did a great job presenting and facilitating our team discussions. Its was time and money well spent. We are committing to work on accountability and will work with the team and provide the accountability they are looking for. We appreciated your time!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
The DiSC Model is a simple yet powerful model that describes four basic behavioral styles: D, i, S, and C. D – Dominance, I – Influence, S – Steadiness, C – Conscientious. At the foundational core of DiSC it measures a spectrum of how cautious versus how bold someone is, and how questioning versus how accepting someone is. With these two spectrums of comparison combined we can learn someone’s preferred style of behavior which leads to deeper insights to be more effective in communication, work function, and team culture.
