Training

Some people are skeptical when we flash the birds to start a DISC session.  That skepticism lasts all of three minutes before participants are fully engaged, laughing, enjoying themselves, but most importantly…learning!  I’ve never seen such an engaging approach to DISC that is so easily applied back on the job and talked about by employees months later.  I can’t remember my DISC world pre-birds!

Terence Morley, Manager, Talent Development, NBCUniversal

Our team recently went through DISC training using the Taking Flight birds. We have taken this information back to our office and are using it to work better as a team and to communicate better.

Jay Scott, Co-Executive Director, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation

The Taking Flight with DISC training has enhanced our communication, productivity, and most importantly - our culture. Take Flight Learning has contributed to the success of our organization and Taking Flight!is required reading for current and new team members. Thank you for positively impacting our culture.

Kevin Havens, CEO, Allied Heath Media

Merrick’s approach to understanding, teaching and harnessing the different styles of communication to improve productivity and quality of relationships in work, on teams and at home is the most creative, impactful and easy to retain I have ever seen.

Jennifer Gould, Chair, Vistage International

Student leaders become future world leaders. Understanding people’s styles of communication and interaction is a critical skill for college students that will greatly benefit them throughout their lives. Taking Flight! and your training programs should be very welcome at every higher-ed institution!

John Martin, Associate Director, Princeton University

Speaking

Merrick's Taking Flight presentation was not only interesting, it was engaging, fun, and informative. I appreciate all you did to bring value to our chapter members. Keep doing the great work you’re doing with DISC!

Steven Jacobs, President, Greater Philadelphia Chapter, ASTD

Merrick took the complexity of human relations and made it understandable, entertaining and manageable. He then took it one step further showing us how to use this knowledge to improve the culture of our organizations using simple methods that get to the heart of the matter. Any organization or level of management will benefit from his expertise.

Kristina Taylor, President, Delaware County Human Resource Association (SHRM chapter)

I just wanted to thank you again for your Taking Flight with DISC presentation. After you left, I heard such tremendous reviews regarding your program. Everyone felt it was a terrific mix of things to be learned, both on a personal and a professional level. You have a profound gift to be able to relay your insights to others. I’m in awe! Again, I thank you on behalf of myself, and our colleagues. Can’t say enough.

Joe Giamboi, President, Tri-State HRMA (SHRM chapter)


You were a hit! A smash! An NJEDA box office phenomenon! The feedback from employees has been incredible. It was great to hear them say that they learned something about themselves and others and had a fun time in the process. You even won over our contingent of naysayers, which is a monumental achievement!

Bridget Hollister, New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA)

Merrick is one of the best speakers and facilitators I have had the pleasure to work with. Merrick facilitated Taking Fight for one of my groups and for our Spousal Retreat and was amazing. His charisma, insight and humor kept everyone engaged from beginning to end. Perhaps most importantly, Merrick's presentation had impact. Major impact. It is very telling when a group of CEOs continues to rave about a speaker weeks after an event. Well done Merrick!

Ned Frey, Master Chair, Vistage International


Just had Merrick Rosenberg present to my seasoned group and he knocked it out of the park. His topic, Taking Flight with the DISC Styles, is a creative, fun and actionable application of the time-tested and well regarded DISC styles. Almost all of the members had previously done a DISC profile, though only one uses it actively in his business. Merrick speaks directly to the point of how to use the styles in your organization. Lots of laughs and learning. Highly recommend...even if you've been there/done that on DISC.

Hank O'Donnell, Master Chair, Vistage International

Merrick was great at what he does as a facilitator and he was dead on the point of what we had hoped to accomplish. This thing was more successful than I had ever imagined it could or would be and I am very happy that we made the investment in this event. I too have heard nothing but positive feedback from folks all week. Most have said it was the best meeting of this type that they have ever attended.

J.R. Griffin, CEO, Comfort Systems USA


Materials

For months after the Taking Flight with DISC program, staff continued to refer to examples and ideas they gained during the session. The materials provided, such as the quick reference cards and the workbook, made it easy for us to keep the learning alive long after the event.


Donna Dickson, Director, Innovative Learning Institute, Rochester Institute of Technology


Certification

Even though I’ve been teaching DISC for years, after attending the Taking Flight Train-the-Trainer course with Merrick Rosenberg, I realized that I still had something to learn. The course content goes beyond building awareness standard for a DISC intro class. Instead the design takes the learner directly to application while still building awareness. Almost magically the Birds link style to specific skill sets that any and all participants will find easy to grasp. Transfer of training at its best...well done!
