Participants are also instructed to carefully observe their colleagues throughout the program for the purpose of giving feedback at a later date during the giving feedback and courageous conversations module.

IV. Topic: Self-Awareness: Understanding my Preferred Leadership Style – Everything DiSC Debrief
Format: Lecture and Interactive Group Discussion
Participants gain essential insight into their individual leadership behaviours and preferences together with a solid understanding of the needs of their team and individuals on the team using the Everything DiSC Management four quadrant behavioural model.

found the material very helpful - although there was a lot of material covered - the pace was well set. Would definitely recommend people to have explored Microsoft Access beforehand to be familiarized with the program before taking the course. I would imagine someone without any exposure would find it confusing. Environment really good - people very, very nice and helpful. Would definitely take the next level of access with the same training facility.

I was not in the physical classroom. Feedback centered around online training would be good because now I have to rate items that I was not present for. Those items are getting half a star because I was not there to rate them. The course material must go through an editing process. There are a lot of grammar mistakes, but also a lot of actual procedure/activity mistakes.
