Take Flight Learning

In matters of style, swim with the current. In matters of principle, stand like a rock.”

Thomas Jefferson

In my workshops I ask people to raise their hands if they have taken a DISC profile. Most hands go up. I then ask people to keep their hands up if they remember their DISC style. Most hands go down. I then ask people to keep their hands up if they apply DISC style awareness in their communications and team dynamics. There is seldom a raised hand remaining.

I could see the awesome power of assessments but wanted to help people to understand and apply the insights from style awareness. This is where Take Flight Learning thrives. We understand the behavior of Eagles, Parrots, Doves and Owls in nature, so when we apply the four DISC styles to the birds we can understand and apply for improved communication and team results.

Take Flight Learning solutions are available in-person and virtually.


Behavioral Assessments

Behavioral assessments help increase self-awareness. They also provide clues for understanding the behaviors of others. This increased awareness of self and others can be applied to improve communication and relationships. It can make us more effective. Using the birds as representatives of the four styles not only facilitates learning, it is more fun!

The Taking Flight with DISC Profile provides comprehensive insights on behaviors, the best ways to communicate, the impact of stress and powerful awareness of relating with other behavioral styles.

The innovating IDEAs Profile provides guidance on how to leverage the strengths of each behavior style at various stages of the creative and innovation process.

The Chameleon Leadership Profile provides insight to key aspects of an individual’s leadership behavior.

The ReDISCovering Conflict Profile helps us understand an individual’s approach to conflict management. Activities are provided to help us work through the findings so we can take action.
