A two day course for HR professionals who want to develop practical skills in the use of DISC as a tool for coaching, recruitment and team/personal development so that they are able to effectively:
- Understand and interpret different profiles
- Explain different profiles to individuals
- Give developmental feedback using specific DISC profiles
- Run a coaching session incorporating the use of the DISC profile
- Understand how to run a team session incorporating the use of the DISC profiles
The format of this development will be:
- Provided in two one day modules to enable the opportunity for practice/learning between modules
- Practically based using live situation role plays and feedback, supported by highly relevant theoretical input on the DISC tool and coaching model/processes
- Supported by recommended pre-course reading and post course articles for continued development
- Assessed by written and verbal analysis of tools, observed practical sessions and verbal presentations.
It will result in a certification of attendance and competence from the trainers present, and detailed personal feedback for future development.
The programme will be led by Julie Harrison and supported by one of Julie’s associates if numbers require.
