Why go through DiSC® certification if it's not required by the publisher?
To become a DiSC Genius, perhaps?
While there is no requirement for DiSC® certification to work with the DiSC® Profile, 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.
The TEAM Approach® offers a truly comprehensive DiSC Certification Process facilitated by a recognized leader in the delivery of DiSC® applications. EPIC, the online delivery medium, the Everything DiSC Facilitation System for DiSC Classic and the new Everything DiSC Application Library are featured in this program. Class size is limited to eight students for maximum learning and participation. See our photo gallery for pics of previous classes.
With a participant fee of only $895 this is truly the best value DiSC Certification Process available.

The DiSC® Behavioral Management System

DiSC® and Role Behavior Analysis in Performance Coaching
This lengthy article presents guidance on how and why to use the two key pieces of the Personal Profile System Software® for Windows®, the Personal Profile System® (now called DiSC Classic) and the Role Behavior Analysis®, in performance coaching.
Written by Pamela Cole, content expert for the software and developer of the Role Behavior Analysis® instrument, this article is essential for anyone using the DiSC® model in performance management today. You have permission to reprint if you retain Pamela's copyright information.
There are many good books to help you understand the DiSC® model and behavioral differences. We will post some of our favorites here. Please suggest others you may know of so we can add them to this list (those with an asterisk will be provided during your training).
Reinforce your knowledge of the DiSC® Model with a shortened version of the online program used as a prerequisite for your classroom session. Check the demo and consider ordering the program as a review of what we did in class if a significant amount of time elapses before you conduct your first training with the DiSC® profile.
When you leave the two-day classroom event you will be ready to apply your knowledge. This final two-part practicum will complete your certification process.
Profile one additional person using the Everything DiSC Workplace report from your EPIC system and discuss your relationship with them using the EPIC Comparison Report and the Great Connection Personal Action Guide.
The real test of our program is to actually present a DiSC® seminar of your choosing to a group of participants and get your hands-on experience. Please feel free to give us a call as you prepare. We will be happy to help you get ready for this first event. And, don't forget to take advantage of your certification specials as you plan your program.
During your DiSC® seminar practicum, get a list of names and email addresses from your participants and ask them for their cooperation in evaluating your presentation.
