Awesome!

Glad you clicked through!

So what style are you and what does it matter?

We would say it matters A WHOLE LOT! Understanding the personality style of your peers, bosses or employees gives you a HUGE advantage to get the most out of each relationship- both from an efficiency/effectiveness standpoint as well as simply from a workability standpoint.

To determine your style we use an awesome survey/evaluation called DISC. You may have heard of it. It is incredibly thoughtful and accurate and it has helped so many of our clients (and our own company!) improve their workplace culture and effectiveness.

If you are interested in learning more about taking the DISC contact us and we’d love to chat about it with you.

In the meantime…take a look below…SO…what style are you? Keep in mind many of us have aspects of each, but normally align more firmly with 1 or 2 of the styles…
