Managing with DiSC | 3/1

March 1, 2023
08:30 am - 04:30 pm

Virtual Class

Number of Seats Available: 25

Managing with DiSC® is based on the DiSC system of behavioral styles, which has been used by millions of people for over 80 years to improve relationships and productivity at work.

Managing with DiSC is a classroom training and personalized learning experience proven to increase the effectiveness of anyone in a supervisory or management role. Participants deepen their understanding of themselves, their direct reports, and their managers using the DiSC model, while learning how their management style influences their approach to decision-making, time management, and problem-solving. Using prework, activity-based learning, and contemporary video, participants learn how to read the styles of the people they manage and adjust their management techniques accordingly. Participants walk away with concrete strategies to help them adapt to the styles of their direct reports, enabling them to bring out the best in their people.

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand their management style and explore the priorities that drive them
  • Recognize other people’s styles
  • Adapt the way they delegate to meet different personalities
  • Adjust the way they motivate different employees to match individual needs
  • Create employee custom employee development plans according to their behavior styles
  • Discover different approaches for getting buy-in from their manager

Our live, instructor-led classes are designed for, and rely on, active participation to ensure a quality learning experience. Because of this, these sessions will not be paused and will not be recorded for future use or reference.

 

Technology Minimums for Attending Virtual Training

Archbright provides virtual training to our members so that they can attend courses from most anywhere, but each attendee must ensure that they are working from a location that has the necessary connectivity to the internet to facilitate participation.

Internet connectivity minimums

To ensure that you have a positive experience attending an Archbright University virtual course, you should verify that your internet connectivity provides a minimum of 5 Megabits per second (Mbps) in upload speed. Most internet packages for home-use are advertised by their download speed and not upload speed, and while this can be important for streaming movies or music, it isn’t the only consideration. For using WebEx, Skype for Business, or any VTC solution, the upload speed is just as important as the download speed.

How can I tell what I currently have?

If you are unsure what you currently have, please reach out to your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and request the information directly.

If they are unable to give you that information, please visit www.speedtest.net while connected to the internet in the same manner you intend to attend the virtual training…and perform a speed test.

Wireless technology minimums

Additionally, if you connect wirelessly, as many of us do, make sure your wireless router can broadcast at the same speed as your upload speed, if not even higher.

Wireless routers can broadcast at over 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) these days, and many companies don't upgrade your router when you upgrade service. This often means that your wireless speeds are significantly lower than the upload speed that is available to you. This can cause significant issues with using WebEx over your wireless connection.

Other considerations

Remember that each device connected to the internet in your location is taking some of that download and upload capability and wireless connectivity. If you have many devices in your network, it is recommended to have significantly higher speeds to accommodate the increased traffic.

Please contact your internal IT team if you have any questions.
