Relationships are the Key to Success

Unleash the Power of DiSC®!

Relationships

For over 40 years practitioners around the world have used the DiSC model to enhance workplace relationships. Based on the work of William Marston in the early 1920's, the DiSC model helps people understand the hidden reasons behind their behaviors and the behaviors of those around them. The mysteries of motivation are unraveled, trust is built and relationships move from acceptance of differences to valuing those differences. A deep understanding of the model and its variety of applications will enable you to take the DiSC profile well beyond a single event and install the DiSC language in your organization. Our certification process will give you the confidence and competence you will need to unleash the power of the DiSC model!

While there is no requirement for certification to work with any of the DiSC® Profiles, or Everything DiSC® tools, our clients find that our certification process helps them take DiSC from an event that is introduced and forgotten to a language that can be installed in their organizations and applied in multiple applications: team development, management development, sales development, customer service, conflict resolution, coaching, counseling and more.

Participants are also more sophisticated today. They often ask probing questions about the DiSC model and want to know how to apply this knowledge back on the job. Certification takes you deeper into your understanding of DiSC as a theory and how the assessment is designed. You will also have an opportunity to work with other facilitators as you critique each other's plan for implementation, and, you will be connected to hundreds of online resources and a network of peers to support your continued development as a DiSC Genius. Let us help you Unleash the Power of DiSC and strengthen your DiSC IQ.
