Virtual Alumni Event: Understanding DISC Communication Styles
Ever wonder what makes you tick? Or why you get along well with some people better than others? It can be difficult to feel disconnected from your co-workers and struggle to motivate your employees. A strong tool for enhanced leadership is understanding the different ways people communicate! DISC is a peek into four simple communication styles: Dominate, Interactive, Conscientious, and Supportive. Join Diana Tyndall, LeadSGF Board Member and graduate of Signature Class 32, for this professional development workshop to learn more about each of these styles and how to use this knowledge in the workplace. Diana has been around DISC for more than two decades and has taught the DISC communication styles to colleagues and friends the last seven years.
