Personal Profile Analysis (PPA) Certification Workshop

Thomas Management Systems Pte Ltd

Course introduction

This 2-day program is designed for HR Professionals, managers and business leaders. DISC provides an accurate insight into how people behave at work, giving you a greater level of certainty when recruiting, identifying where to maximize your learning and development budget, and understanding where to boost morale to avoid staff turnover. It will also enable you to spend less time managing your underperformers and focus more time on those who will truly drive your business forward. Understanding DISC will helps to determine whether individuals see themselves as responding to workplace situations that they perceive to be favorable or hostile/challenging, and reveals whether their response patterns are active or passive; thus classifying the individual's behavioral preferences in terms of four domains: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance. This certification program is sought after by Business Leaders, HR practitioners, Training Professionals and all who wants to interact more effectively in their work.
