About the Presentation:
Using DISC Personality Diagnostics to Communicate
In a one-hour overview of a four hour course, participants will be exposed to the DISC personality diagnostic instrument in an effort to understand their communication and behavior patterns. Further, each personality type will be examined to assist each participant in understanding how to interact and communicate with individuals of different personalities.
At the conclusion, each participant should have a basic understanding of how and why interactions with others are affected by personality. During this presentation, the use of video clips and PowerPoint slides are used to reinforce the conceptual framework of the course.
