The Neuroscience of DISC: Reinventing the Styles to Make Them Brain-Friendly

Wednesday, April 8, 2020 2:00pm - 3:00pm EDT

Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Merrick Rosenberg, CEO, Keynote Speaker and Author, Take Flight Learning

Companies invest time and money in DISC (Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness) assessments and training, yet most fail to see any sustained or measurable results. Perhaps this is because the styles are being taught in a way that puts them into short-term memory, so they never get triggered for application. During this webcast, personality guru and award-winning DISC author Merrick Rosenberg will share strategies and insights for conducting DISC training that sticks.
In this webcast, you will discover how to:
• Build emotional intelligence through personality styles training.
• Transform training from awareness of a model to an intensive focus on application.
• Transition from empty acronyms to using mnemonics (or memory aids) that infuse the styles into your daily behaviors.
• Use brain chemistry to build strong interpersonal connections using the styles.
• Turn styles training from a one-time event to a reinforced process that incorporates the styles into your organizational culture.
