From staff reports
University Human Resources will host a leadership and staff development workshop on Wednesday, Sept. 15 from 1 to 3:30 p.m. in Human Resources and Training Center 141.
The faculty and staff workshop, titled "Discover your individual work behavior patterns, style, and traits in order to improve your interpersonal relationships and overall effectiveness at work," will use the DiSC® Profile test as a training tool.
DiSC helps people:
• Identify their behavioral profile and improve interpersonal relationships
• Gain insight into their adaptive and natural styles of behavior
• Increase their appreciation of others, respect and value differences
• Explore their behavior across four primary dimensions: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, & Conscientiousness
The DiSC Profile test doesn't have "pass" or "fail"—there are no "right" answers and it does not precisely determine job fit, job fitness, or success. It instead describes one's work behavior patterns, style, traits, or type. DISC gives insight into your behavior as well as the behavior of others.
The DiSC profile test works from the idea that the foundation of personal and professional success lies in understanding yourself, understanding others, and realizing the impact of personal behavior on others.
The cost of the workshop, which includes all materials and the assessment, is $25. Contact Brent Patterson at 740-593-4472 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Teri Combs at 740-593-1617 or email@example.com to register.
