Includes a Live Event on 03/12/2019 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

Presenter: Pattie Vargas, MAOM, PMP
Tuesday, March 12, 2019, 2–3:30 p.m. EST/1 p.m. CST/Noon MST/11 a.m. PST

Session Description

We all possess strengths that come as second nature to us. But without learning how to flex our behavior to adapt to the needs of others, those strengths can become roadblocks on our way to effective business relationships. During this webinar, our presenter will share the advantages of using and analyzing the DISC Behavioral Assessment to help you succeed. Through DISC, we can understand the root of communication misfires, decrease tension and increase trust, while establishing rapport and credibility.

Session Learning Objectives:

During Don’t Look Now, Your Strength Is Showing, you’ll:

  • Learn the strengths and challenges of your own behavioral style and how relying on your natural style may hinder their effectiveness
  • Recognize the default behavioral style in others and learn how to easily adapt to improve the interaction and increase chances for a successful outcome
  • Recognize what might be "hot buttons" for yourself and others based on behavioral styles and learn how to develop new self-management techniques to avoid them
  • Discover flexing strategies for applying “The Platinum Rule” when communicating with others

Please note: As prework to the program, participants are required to download, and encouraged to complete, a short (5-7 minute) assessment. This prework may be downloaded anytime prior to accessing the webinar and will be used by participants during the webinar.
