    Our Holiday Gift to You!

    Have you kept up with enhancements to DiSC lately?

    If you’re already familiar with DiSC, you’ll be excited by the new tool. And if you don’t know DiSC yet, you’re in for a treat. DiSC is perhaps the world’s most frequently implemented workplace styles assessment tool, and there’s now an enhanced version that includes more personalized information than ever before and new features like a podcast about your style and personalized tips on how to work with any other individual in your organization who’s taken the assessment.

    At the session, Anthony Harmetz will provide:

    • An overview of the Catalyst website pages
    • A holiday themed DiSC activity
    • Tips for using DiSC when training

    The first 40 registrants will receive a special gift: a complimentary DiSC assessment and your own set of personalized DiSC webpages on the Catalyst platform (an $81 value).
