    Building an effective team is both art and science, but it shouldn’t be a mystery. Using the Extended DISC model as a guide, Dr. Travis Kahle will explore how colleagues with different personality and behavioral tendencies can complement each other and thrive. 

    Everyone has a unique personality, but years of research has shown that people generally fall into one of four primary categories- dominance (D -style), influence (I-style), steadiness (S-style), or correctness (C-style). While conflict at work is inevitable, there is a difference between healthy and destructive conflict. By acknowledging and understanding the four major personality styles, destructive conflict can often be managed or avoided altogether. 

    In this workshop, participants will learn how to identify the DISC styles and how to communicate effectively with individuals in each category. Participants will also discuss how to leverage diverse personalities to build effective and productive teams.
