DISC: Understanding and Working with Different Personalities
Understand how you and others are "wired". We'll examine personality types and provide insight into why some interactions are successful and others struggle, and what you can do about it.
Everyone deals with difficult conversations and difficult personalities. We will discuss various scenarios and how to manage those conversations for better outcomes.
Women typically struggle to be proficient in this skill. During this workshop we role-play in order to see how we react to certain negotiating tactics, and how to develop a few of our own.
