Participants will develop their understanding of the communication style method, DISC, with their own self-assessment and through instructor-led training. They'll use a simple approach to define and identify the four different communication styles: Drive, Influence, Steadiness, and Compliance. Determine your natural style, learn clues for reading other people's styles, and apply methods for interacting more effectively with communication and different communication styles. 

Register for this program to access your own DISC Assessment and then join for a 4-hour deep-dive workshop, facilitated by experts, to better understand each of the four major DISC communication styles. You will learn to recongize your own style, identify the DOs and DON'Ts of each, and most importantly, how to use that knowledge to adapt your style to best communicate with your colleagues, teams, committees, friends, and even family!

This program is scheduled just once in 2022. Don't miss your chance to Register! July 14 (1:00 - 5:00 pm Eastern Time)

"Understanding of DISC model and using it as a lens to understanding relationships and goal setting, was very educative and eye-opening. Mostly all portions of the module were deeply relevant with a high degree of applicability to our on-ground relationships. Found it to be a very useful toolkit." - Senior-level Leader 

"I have done DISC so many times but having the short hand, key factors made it actually make sense so I can use it. Understanding how they contribute to change management and momentum concerns has been extremely useful as we've implemented new programs." - Process Leader


"Learning how to identify others with different DISC styles and tools to approach conversations with them is extremely useful. Now I've been able to apply different strategies for different styles. My colleagues, team members, and our leadership seem to "hear" me better as I've learned to adapt tot heir style -- it's made us all more successful." -People Leader


"Knowing DISC - and using it as a shared langage across our team- has been so useful. We know our strengths better and adapt to each other's communictaion styles and those of donors and ocmmunity partners. I think everyone should be in this program." - Executive Director
