San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 13, 2013
Human Resource professionals, trainers, coaches, and facilitators no longer need to spend hours preparing DISC materials, but instead can focus on implementing DISC strategies for optimum success, due in large part to new DISC training materials being introduced by DISCcert at its July DISC certification program, July 25 and 26 in San Diego.
The improved training tools include new scripts, profile worksheets, and concrete methods to reinforce DISC and produce long-term results. The step-by-step scripts address common questions and objections that come up in assessment discussions; spelling out what to say and when to say it. For example, Burn notes a commonly asked question is: how accurate are the DISC Profile results? “The simple truth is, the results are as accurate as the data entered by the respondent,” Burn explained. “Since it’s a self-assessment, the results are based on that individual’s own knowledge about their communication preferences. The detailed scripts lead new DISC facilitators down a logical, user-friendly pathway, while at the same time encourage seasoned trainers to stay on course and avoid getting sidetracked.”
The revised DISC profile worksheets increase participants’ involvement and retention by giving them a better initial understanding of the DISC model and how it can be best applied to their current challenges with communications and other aspects of the workplace. It’s no longer enough that employees understand their own DISC graph and style, it’s also important that they know how to use these tools when dealing with someone who has a different style. This can be easily ensured by a DISC certified trainer, who can now hand out practical worksheets to give the DISC learner a chance to gather new insights and incorporate them into their daily work interactions. The worksheets are easily customized to be used at all levels of an organization.
Completing the DISC profile worksheets enables participants to go on and complete the DISC action plan worksheet. Doing this, as many DISC certified Human Resource professionals will attest, motivates participants to be increasingly responsible for their interactions with others and increases their likelihood of success.
Learning how to communicate better with others, whether they are co-workers, employees or clients, is beneficial to any organization. Mary Jane Riccardi, Senior Learning and Development Manager at Kleinfelder, shared how her firm has implemented DISC in their communications efforts.
“As part of our Client Account Analysis, our marketing teams use DISC to proactively develop approaches based on a client’s communication style. This results in more effective and efficient client meetings,” Riccardi notes.
DISCcert’s new training materials provide trainers from a variety of professions and industries with better tools that will enhance their competency, credibility and confidence with the system, resulting in their organization's meeting and exceeding their business objectives.
