Even though DISC assessments are commonly used around the world, they regularly fail to have a lasting impact. While people are fascinated by their results, awareness doesn’t often translate into sustained behavioral change. Learn how to reinvent DISC training to make it more engaging and sticky. Discover why DISC is not about graphs and reports, but rather about application. You will learn how to place the styles into long-term memory rather than having them be just a fleeting fascination.
Merrick Rosenberg co-founded Team Builders Plus in 1991 and Take Flight Learning in 2012. He is the author of Taking Flight and The Chameleon and has reinvented how people learn about themselves and the people in their lives. His work with the personality styles has led him to be recognized as the CEO of the Year for the state of New Jersey, while his company, Take Flight Learning, has been selected as the New Jersey Business of the Year. His organization has repeatedly been named one of the Fastest Growing Companies and Best Places to Work in the Philadelphia area. Merrick has worked with more than half of the Fortune 100 companies in the US and around the world.
After leading training programs for thousands of small and mid-sized companies, more than two-thirds of the Fortune 100s, non-profit organizations and government agencies, Take Flight Learning reinvented how individuals learn about themselves and the people they encounter.
Take Flight Learning grew out of Team Builders Plus, which was established as one of the first team building companies in the United States in 1991. So, when we say our training programs are interactive, we mean it! At Take Flight Learning, engaging participants isn’t just “turn to a partner, discuss a topic and report out in five minutes.” Our programs get results as participants experience the styles in action and focus on application and behavior change, not just understanding letters.
Based on more than two decades of experience with the DISC model, Take Flight Learning is the leading DISC training company in the US. Then, in 2012, Merrick Rosenberg breathed new life into this age-old model by linking the styles to birds in his books, Taking Flight! and The Chameleon. By linking the four styles to Eagles, Parrots, Doves and Owls and redesigning our training programs to be more brain-friendly and practical, Take Flight Learning reimagined the classic DISC model into what it is today.
Unlike most DISC providers who have a single DISC training program, Take Flight Learning offers a variety of DISC training sessions, products, and services. DISC training can be conducted for organizations (including programs for individuals, teams, leaders, salespeople, and educators), trainers (through the Take Flight with DISC Certification) and in public keynote talks.
