DISC Certification

GeniusLogoWhy go through DISC certification if  not required by the publisher?

To become a DISC Genius.

While there is no requirement for certification to work with any of the DiSC® Profiles or Everything DiSC® tools, our clients find that our certification process helps them take DiSC from an event that is introduced and forgotten to a language that can be installed in their organizations and applied in multiple applications: team development, management development, sales development, customer service, conflict resolution, coaching, counseling and more.  

As a licensed partner of Wiley Workforce Solutions, the publisher of Everything DiSC®, our process now offers a two part certification: the Wiley Everything DiSC Workplace Certification and an optional DISC Genius badge signifying completion of an Everything DiSC Workplace practicum

DiSC Certification Overview

Our process begins with a number of pre-class assignmentsDISC Certification Classes are small for individual attention followed by two days of classroom instruction, a few self-study activities, and finally, an optional practicum which includes a 360 feedback evaluation.  Perhaps most importantly – ongoing reinforcement and support.

A key theme throughout the process is the implementation of a proper philosophy on the use of the DISC Model of Behavior – or any other behavioral instrument for that matter.

Pre-Class Assignments

In order to maximize our time together in the classroom, we require you do the following before coming to class:

  1. Profile someone using the DiSC® Classic Profile, interview this person, and record the results on an interview sheet sent in your pre-work packet;
  2. Read the book, The Great Connection;
  3. Complete the Everything DiSC Workplace online training program;
  4. Complete an online DiSC leadership assessment to be discussed in class;
  5. Complete the Everything DiSC Workplace report and set up your personal DiSC portal, MyEverythingDiSC;
