Improve student's soft skills

Research has shown that there is a skill gap when entering the workforce. Even though qualified people are being hired. Companies realize that the "soft skills" needed to excel on the job are not at an appropriate level. We have found that our Online DISC Assessments are able to help those students. Our programs retail between $20-$60/assessment and have large pricing discounts for bulk orders of assessments.

DISC Implementation

Set up

Each factor of DISC is broken down in your personalized DISCflex results
  • You can customize what you want your students to have access to
    • Their DISC Pattern and Factor Results
    • The ability to instantly download their report
    • The ability to invite third-party users to take a condensed assessment about them
  • We can link the admin/professors account so that they will receive an automated email when their student/participant completes the assessment the email also contains a link to download that persons report.
  • We include the school's logo (no charge) to appear in the upper-left hand of the account, this personalizes the program to each school/class.

Facilitation

  • We can set up a Master Account for the school with sub-groups for each department and class. This way you can keep groups separated for tracking purposes.
  • We provide admin/professors with a facilitation email and group codes to send to their students.
  • We also provide two PPT's to assist the admin/professor with implementation.
    • One PPT provides a walk thru of the student's user experience and provides our contact info for technical questions.
    • One PPT provides a report walk thru and activities with facilitator notes so the admin/professor can lead the group from the front of the room.

Who uses DISC in the classroom?

Our programs are popular in the classroom. They have been integrated with students at all levels. Ranging from intro Freshman levels to MBA and Doctorate courses.

What are Professors saying about DISC in the classroom?

“We utilized DISCFlex in our MBA and Executive MBA programs.  As a specific example, we have MBA students that work on projects with students from the Berlin School of Economics and Law.  We had our students and the Berlin students take the DISC so that we could assign them to groups according to their profiles.  These groups have been very cohesive and effective in the work they have been doing for the clients.  I attribute the success of the groups to the fact that we used DISC to put them together.  DISCFlex was a great tool that helped us understand our individual students and build a strong group dynamic within the teams.”

Liz McLain Director of Graduate Studies in Business - Frank Barton School of Business - Wichita State University.

"Many professors prepare courses that reward extroversion and penalize introversion.  But, one of the keys to success in the classroom is taking the individual differences of your students into account when preparing your lessons. DISCflex has been the perfect tool for that endeavor.  Having my undergraduate and graduate students take the assessment early in the semester allows each student to understand their personality baseline and the traits they need to dial up or down for given assignments.  I’ve always thought I related to students well, but with DISCflex, I now feel that I understand my students on a deeper level."

Jason Fertig, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Management - Romain College of Business - University of Southern Indiana.

“I love what I see, it is much improved over the DISC I have used in the past.”

Bryan Forsyth, Ph.D. Ottawa University

“This is the most comprehensive DISC I’ve ever seen!”

Jeff Kudisch, Ph.D. University of Maryland

“Students get a “real life business experience” while gaining Behavioral Intelligence using DISCflex.”

Betty Anzaldua, University of Toledo
