Management Assessment for Personal Planning and Developmentcontinuingstudies.wisc.edu/0031-C-LAAS See upcoming dates
This class is offered in a highly participatory live-online format with a personal assessment instrument completed ahead of the live session. The cost of the assessment is included in the class fee.
Managers have the privilege (and challenge!) of interacting with a variety of people with a variety of perspectives in today's workforce. These viewpoints are shaped by different backgrounds, experiences, and personalities. As individuals and groups communicate and work together, these differences in ideas, styles and priorities can cause frustration and judgment; hurting our ability to connect and collaborate. This class will use the DiSC® assessment instrument to build self-awareness and explore the many facets that shape the way we see our world and function at work. By incorporating neuroscience and the DiSC® framework, we will learn to better understand our perspectives, identify and adapt to the perspectives of others and to capture insightful synergies. We will discuss how to use tools and strategies to make this process easier so we can discover more options and solutions in our teams and projects.
