Delivery Strategy

This program will be delivered over the course of five days with the following course structure:

  • Pre-course work – [Each participant will be invited to complete a DISC 360 assessment. They will receive a personalised report about their DISC profile. This report will allow them to understand their strengths, weaknesses, communication preferences and to learn how others perceive of them. From this, they will be able to create a personal development plan on how to build on their strengths, address weaknesses and relate and engage others more effectively.
  • At the end of each session, participants will be invited to set goals to apply what they learned during the workshop.
  • Participants will be assigned to a Learning Circle (typically groups of between 3-5 participants) who will meet up between each workshop to share learnings, application of learnings, discuss challenges they faced and to celebrate wins
  • At the start of each subsequent session, participants will get to share their wins.
  • Each participant will be appointed an external coach and/or an internal mentor. Mentors will be briefed on their roles to help give the participant feedback, be a sounding board for their learnings and hold them accountable to goals they’ve set.

The program will be delivered through a combination of interactive workshops, lectures, case studies, and role-playing exercises.

Certificate of Completion
