Course Description

Individual differences are key to the success of any organization.  Yet these vital differences can also lead to common workplace issues—stress, conflict, low productivity, and resistance to change.  So how do you solve common problems among unique individuals?  You begin with self-awareness.  Self-awareness is a key component of effective management.

Foundation for Effective Leadership helps participants identify their strengths by focusing on the behaviors that “come naturally” to them.  When leaders operate from their strengths and are aware of their weaknesses, they can more effectively coach, delegate, and correct performance problems.

  • Everything DiSC® Workplace self-assessment report (participants respond to the assessment prior to class)

  • Understanding other styles
  • Building more effective relationships

Learner Outcomes

  • Explain the four DiSC dimensions of behavior—Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, Conscientiousness
  • Flex their behavioral style to communicate more effectively with others
  • Promote appreciation of individual differences
  • Enhance individual and team performance by communicating more effectively
