Building an “A” Team, Where Do I Fit In?
12:30pm – 2:30pm | Renee Rouwhorst, Ryke's Bakery, Catering and Café, certified on the DiSC Personal Profiling System, Diversity Analysis, and Time Management Evaluation.
Ever wonder why there are some people that you just "click" with and others that just don't seem to respond positively - even when you treat them the very same way? In this session, participants will be introduced to concepts from the DiSC Behavioral Profiling System and gain an understanding of why people do what they do and how your behavior can affect others. We'll discover why we need a balance of all different types of people with different approaches to tasks and communication to build a team that works.
