The BirdBrains, Inc. Profile is a DISC-based assessment that utilizes Eagles, Parrots, Doves, and Owls to explain the four styles. Your profile will help you discover the most interesting topic of all- you! In addition, the profile includes the Participant Guide for the BirdBrains, Inc. movie.
Personalized content includes a description of your general characteristics, strengths, behavioral tendencies and challenges. The report provides an in-depth analysis of your motivators, needs, fears, distinctive value to a team, how you relate to other styles, handle conflict, communicate, lead people, manage stress, and more.
People will also discover the characteristics of the four styles and the type of environment in which each style thrives and what they may need to do to increase effectiveness. Individuals will learn how the styles can be overused, which results in turning strengths into behavioral challenges that decrease effectiveness and can damage relationships. Additional sections of the profile provide insight into how to build rapport with each of the styles, how to communicate with each style, and what you may need to accept about each style.
The report concludes with action planning questions based on our Dynamic Action Planning process in which questions are specifically selected for the individual based on their style. Let’s face it, Eagles need to work on different things than Doves. So, we now direct the individual to create an improvement plan just for them.
The Taking Flight Profile features the bird styles from Merrick Rosenberg’s books, Taking Flight! and The Chameleon. The results of this assessment are integrated into all of Take Flight Learning’s training programs and the BirdBrains, Inc. movie debrief.
