Profiling for Business Success With Dr. Tony Alessandra

Have you ever had problems with co-workers because you just did not mesh with them? The company you work for probably didn’t use a DISC assessment when building your team! A DISC assessment measures someone’s behavioural style - how they behave with others. DISC stands for four different patterns of behavior: D=dominance, I=influence, S=Steadiness, and C=Conscientiousness. Everyone has a mixture of all four areas. A DISC assessment is accurate, simple, and practical.
