Taking Flight towards Personality- Driven Results Workshop Series for Leaders


Summary and Objectives: The Taking Flight towards Personality-Driven Results training program is a refreshing, reimagined approach to traditional personality styles workshops. This 4-workshop series is built around key competencies: self- awareness, social awareness, flexibility and culture. While the most self-aware people are the most successful people, those who can read others and adapt to meet their needs are even more so. This course applies Merrick Rosenberg’s reimagined the traditional DISC method by using birds to denote each personality style. By linking Eagles to the Dominant (D) style, Parrots to the Interactive (I) style, Doves to the Supportive (S) style and Owls to the Conscientious (C) style, participants remember and apply the styles with ease.

This workshop series is for supervisors, team-leaders, and team members. Across 4 sessions (~24 hours), participants will learn how to utilize the four styles when: communicating and listening to others; providing feedback; taking risks; coping with stress; leading change; dealing with change; managing time; crafting emails; public speaking; running meetings; working in teams; leading teams; and managing conflict. Additionally, participants will learn to apply the relationship between personality and emotional intelligence to their day-to-day activities for positive results.

Engaging activities will allow participants to experience the DISC styles in action. Through interactive exercises, participants discover how often they impose their style on others and how the simple shift to treating people how they need to be treated will strengthen relationships and increase effectiveness.
