We all know that employees who are self-aware are more likely to maximize their talents, more effectively recognize and manage their challenges, and produce better results. Self-aware employees work better with their colleagues and promote teamwork at every level of your organization. In return, your company experiences higher morale, lower turnover, and better results.
Every employee, whether they realize it or not (and most do not), is a co-creator of workplace culture. When people understand their own personality and behavioral style and show respect for individual differences, they impact the culture in a very positive way. By applying the wisdom of the styles, each person improves the culture, one interaction at a time.
Take Flight Learning offers a variety of DISC-based training programs:
Taking Flight with DISC
The Taking Flight with DISC training program is a high energy training experience where individuals learn about themselves and others. This is not your typical DISC session. We have literally written the book on the DISC styles and reinvented DISC training.
By linking the DISC styles to four birds, the Taking Flight with DISC program breathes new life into the tried and true DISC model. First introduced by Merrick Rosenberg in his book, Taking Flight!, the birds add colorful energy and help create a memorable session for participants. By linking Eagles to the Dominant (D) style, Parrots to the Interactive (I) style, Doves to the Supportive (S) style and Owls to the Conscientious (C) style, people remember the styles like never before. And if people are going to apply new wisdom, they have to remember it! A year from now, when people are asking questions like, “What does the D stand for?” they will still recall that eagle’s personality is direct, decisive, daring, and driven.Read More
Taking Flight with EQ
What do you get when you combine emotional intelligence with the DISC styles? A powerful tool for personal and professional development that helps people become the truest and best versions of themselves.
The Eagle, Parrot, Dove, and Owl styles help explain how and why people behave as they do. Emotional intelligence captures the ability to perceive, understand, evaluate, and manage emotions. When combined, we get a more holistic view of how an individual, based on their style, is likely to understand themselves and others, as well as how they are likely to manage their emotions, behaviors, and relationships.
The Taking Flight with EQ Profile combines two assessments into one report. First, individuals answer the Taking Flight Profile. (If they’ve already completed it, there’s no need to take it again.) Then, they complete a series of questions to assess their level of emotional intelligence. The report integrates the results in a way that explains how someone with their style is likely to approach the various aspects of EQ.Read More
Chameleon Leadership teaches current and future leaders how to flexibly adapt to the needs of their direct reports. This one-day session takes existing skills to the next level by linking the four personality styles (Eagles, Parrots, Doves and Owls) to a range of core leadership skills.
Managers will quickly discover that in all likelihood they have been creating an environment in which they themselves will thrive instead of an environment in which their people will thrive. Without realizing it, leaders regularly impose their personality style on their staff. Traditional leadership training ignores this reality and typically espouses a one-size-fits-all approach to leading others.Read More
