What others are saying:

My boss at work asked me if I would like to register for the Self DISCovery Level 1 Course which I was a bit reluctant to do. I thought that I was pretty good at reading people, so why would I need to do a course. Well, I’m glad I did, being the High D that I am, I saw just why people react to me sometimes when I’m under stress! Thanks to this course I now can adapt my style and have seen my relationships change for the better.

Thanks PeopleSmart Academy for another great course! I really had no idea that each of the fours DISC Styles were so different, and just how easy understanding DISC could be. I will definitely be sharing and applying what I’ve learned with my family, as I can see now that my son and daughter have very different styles!
