Understanding DISC

“Understanding DISC” is an engaging introduction to fundamental information of the DISC model. This session helps attendees understand and decipher their personal report by reading and interpreting their graphs and provides an in-depth look at each of the four behavioral styles. This session covers how DISC can be used as a communication tool with colleagues and how individuals can adapt their style to better communicate with each other.    



DISC is a powerful assessment tool used to detail individual work styles and behaviors. By learning and understanding these behavioral characteristics, we strengthen our communication skills and our understanding of each other, resulting in higher performing teams and better working relationships.  


This session is private and participants must have completed their DISC assessment prior to attending the session. There are two different DISC assessments employees can take:  Communicating with Style ($30.00) and a management version ($60.00). If individuals are interested in completing the assessment, a department chargeback number will have to be provided to Carla Pennello prior to the assessment being sent out. Team-based sessions can also be arranged by contacting Carla Pennello directly.

If you require interpreting services, please contact cpdcoop@rit.edu as soon as possible.
