WEMBA SF DiSC Workshop

WEMBA SF DiSC Workshop

The DiSC Workshop provides an overview of the time-tested DiSC behavioral assessment model. The focus of this interactive Workshop is to help participants better understand their style and the style of others so they can more effectively communicate, influence, collaborate and enjoy better outcomes. Participants will have the opportunity to increase their awareness of their strengths/blind spots and potential performance challenges to become a more effective manager and leader.

Each participant will receive his/her own feedback report and have the opportunity to ask questions to clarify understanding. This report provides an overview of each person’s behavior patterns, highlighting effective and ineffective communication, how to communicate with people who prefer other styles of behavior, ways to stay motivated and keys to being effectively managed. Potential personal ‘time wasters’ are also identified. There is ample opportunity to spot key learning points and personal development opportunities.

We will also have a discussion about how behavioral style differences can align to work smoothly together as well as conflict so as cause tension and ineffective interactions and poor results. We will discuss examples in part derived from the group discussion.

The workshop is predominantly discussions driven, with an emphasis on how a leader and/or his/her team might use this assessment data to lead more effectively.
