The Taking Flight with DISC Profile:
Special Instructions: You will be contacted within 1 business day to complete the assessment process. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected]
The New Taking Flight Profile is based on the Eagle, Parrot, Dove, and Owl styles. Your profile will help you discover the most interesting topic of all- you!
The profile provides an in-depth analysis of your motivators, needs, fears, distinctive value to a team, how you relate to other styles, and your stress response. Individuals will learn about their unique strengths and challenges based on their style.
People will also discover the traits of characteristics of the four styles, the type of environment they will thrive in, and what you may need to do to be more effective. In addition, personalized content includes a one-page description of your general characteristics and information on your strengths, work tendencies, and your approach to conflict management.
Additional sections of the profile provide insight into how to build rapport with each of the styles, how to communicate with each style, and what you made need to accept about each style. Individuals will also discover how the styles can be overused, which results in turning strengths into behavioral challenges that decrease effectiveness and can damage relationships. The profile closes out with an action plan for personal development.
The New Taking Flight Profile features the bird styles from Merrick Rosenberg’s books, Taking Flight! and The Chameleon. The profile is in integrated into all of Take Flight Learning’s training programs
The New Taking Flight Participant Guide:
The New Taking Flight Participant Guide is the companion workbook for the Taking Flight training program. This is not your typical 3-ring binder. Packed with years of DISC insights from Merrick Rosenberg, the author of Taking Flight! and The Chameleon, the Participant Guide is filled with interactive exercises that will bring the styles to life in the classroom. This beautifully designed guide is like a personal journal that participants will refer to as it offers tips and action ideas to apply the styles in their lives.
Instead of forgettable letters, the Participant Guide is based on the Eagle, Parrot, Dove, and Owl styles. Informational content includes a history of the four styles; an explanation of the three graphs; a description of the characteristics, contribution, dislikes/fears, and stress response of the styles; communication tips for speaking to each style, strategies to improve team dynamics based on the styles; tips for toning down style overuse; action ideas for applying the styles in daily life.
We all know that learning is a process, not an event, which is why we’ve also included the four Reinforcement Activities in the back of every Participant Guide. These four 15-20-minute self-facilitated activities can be integrated into a staff meeting or used as a stand-alone reinforcer. Your participants will continue to learn after they leave the classroom.
The New Taking Flight Participant Guide also includes four reinforcement activities that can be self-facilitated by the team, including The Styles at Play, The Forgotten Traits, Words of Appreciation, and Growing Your Office Tree.
