DiSC® Personality Profiling and Insights.
How to communicate more effectively with ALL your customers.
Trainer: Debbie Bird
Do you ever wonder why you work so well with some clients, while relationships with others can be a little... tricky?
Join us on October 8th for a morning’s training when top business coach (and chair of SBN) Debbie Bird will give us a very special and condensed version of the renowned DiSC® personality profiling course to help YOU communicate more effectively with ALL your customers.
Debbie says: “Attending a DiSC® training course about 20 years ago proved a pivotal moment in my career. For the first time, I got detailed insight as to why it was very easy for me to communicate and influence some people, and so very difficult with others.
"More significantly, the course showed me ways I could improve my effectiveness when communicating with all sorts of people. It took practice, but over time the results were incredible: my sales grew, I started to be a top performer and in my industry that meant bigger bonuses!
When I found out that as a business coach I could become an accredited DiSC® trainer it was an easy decision. I have run many courses over the past five years some with a selling skills focus and others management, helping my clients to work better in teams and improve the way they relate to their customers. The course is a lot of fun and it would be good to share these valuable insights with you."
The special shortened version of the DiSC® programme for SBN members will also offer free options for an online DiSC® profile, or a more comprehensive report (for which there will be an additional charge).
During the course you will
- Discover your own DiSC® style: recognise the priorities, motivators, and stress triggers that shape your workplace experience
- Explore other styles: understand the differences and similarities among the DiSC styles
- Identify strategies to make more meaningful connections with colleagues of various styles and work more effectively to reduce tension, solve problems, and contribute positively.
The course is a lot of fun and it would be good to share these valuable insights with you.
When you register for this event you will be sent information about how to complete your free profile report about week prior to the meeting and also information on how to purchase a further comprehensive report.
