What You Will Learn

In-Person Cost: $450

Virtual Cost: $450

Working Better Together takes place over three 2-hour sessions virtually for 3 weeks. In these sessions you will cover:

  • Discovering Your Style: Before you can understand others’ personality styles, you have to first understand your own. Participants will take the DiSC personality assessment prior to class. In training, participants will debrief their assessment and learn the dynamics of each of the DiSC personality styles. They will also explore how their personality style influences their stressors, their motivators, how they believe others should function, and their overall experience in the workplace. 
  • Evaluating the “Other” Styles: Participants will take a deeper look at the other personality styles, learn what their reactions are to other styles, what works and what challenges they may face with them, and how others experience their own DiSC personality style. Each participant will choose one style to focus on and identify potential challenges and strengths of the relationship. 
  • Mastering Work Relationships: Participants will create personalized strategies to overcome challenges experienced when working with the different styles to maximize the effectiveness of their work relationship. Participants will also learn how to use the online Catalyst Platform as a comparison tool to reinforce what is learned when they get back to work.
  • Personal Action Plan: As a final step in this program, participants will create a personal action plan which lays out a specific and measurable plan for them to start improving their self awareness and workplace relationships.
  • BONUS – The Catalyst Platform: All participants receive ongoing access to extended learning opportunities with our interactive learning portal that gives participants unlimited access to on-demand insights about DiSC and strategies for applying DiSC to real work situations.

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.
