This one-day seminar, led by an experienced management coach, uses the respected DiSC profile as a vehicle for learning how you can communicate most effectively in the workplace, with people of all personality types. Before class, you will complete the DiSC profile online and bring your results to the session for debriefing. In class, you will learn workplace communication best practices, and use your DiSC results to get tips for specific communications strategies for people who have different personality preferences from you.


  • Your DiSC profile
  • How to communicate well with people who have different DiSC profiles than you
  • Communications strategies for working with challenging individuals and teams
  • How to develop your own workplace communications plan
