Communication issues are one of the most common workplace problems, but they can be one of the easiest obstacles to overcome. Our behaviour is a significant part of our communication, and each of us have our own behavioural style. When a team understands and appreciates each other’s behavioural styles, many misunderstandings can be solved, making for a more harmonious workplace and greater staff retention.
The DISC Advanced system is the basis of this course, with a full individual behavioural assessment to be completed prior to your session. The DISC profiling assessment tool has been utilised and trusted world-wide since the late 1940s, with the newest DISC Advanced system being launched in 2017. Only trained and accredited consultants are permitted to present and analyse DISC Advanced sessions and assessments, assuring accurate interpretation of assessments and presentation of material.
This course is presented face-to-face over 5 hours. Its focus is on communication and behaviour, and is suitable for all school staff. Only private sessions of this course are available, as completing the training with your team is vital to its effectiveness. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a personalised proposal.
