Oct 19 @ 8:30 am – 5:00 pm

New 1-day DISC Certification Program offered by SHRM member and DISC expert, Jill McGillen of Next Turn, to employees in HR and Learning and Development departments.

In this DISC train-the-trainer certification program, you will learn how to conduct your own DISC training, confident in your understanding of this valuable, effective communication and behavior style tool.  Jill McGillen, 3X certified instructor, will offer her 18-year expertise and in-depth understanding of DISC, the Facilitation System, and its applications.  Participants will be grounded in the newest research and leave the program with a way to demonstrate their organizational commitment to excellence and workplace productivity using this profile.  Plus you’ll be offered new and exciting ways to facilitate effectively for your organizations with valuable access to sustainable learning systems.


The DISC tool is a behavior assessment tool based on the DISC theory of psychologist William Marston.  The theory centers around four different behavior style traits.  DISC is widely used in organizations around the world helping build stronger teams and leadership.


It is most often used as a way to build teamwork, advance communication, reduce conflict, and train managers.  DiSC is also an invaluable leadership tool.  By understanding the different leadership methods and styles that coincide with each behavior style, leaders and team members can be more effective.
