Extended DISC
Level One Practitioner

Who is the course suited to?

Our Extended DISC Level One Practitioner Accreditation, provides businesses with real-world solutions for understanding and addressing behavioural differences in the workplace to get the best out of your workforce. An understanding of the different behavioural styles leads to more productive communication, teamwork, and minimises conflict. We provide online disc certification training and in-house DISC training options to all businesses throughout Australia.

Our Level One Extended DISC Accreditation is designed for business consultants and coaches whose clients are frustrated with the challenges of workplace behaviour and its effect on productivity, motivation and the wellbeing of staff and the broader organisation.

DISC training is also practical for HR professionals who are concerned about improving staff culture to increase employee retention and decrease training and recruitment costs.

Our Level One DISC assessment training workshop gets HR Professionals and Consultants up and running with DISC in just one day. The Practitioner Accreditation is a comprehensive and interactive full-day training. We explore using DISC in the workplace and the four primary behavioural styles, looking closely at:

  • The background of Extended DISC®
  • Strengths and development areas of the DISC profiles
  • How to motivate people and spot when they are under stress
  • How to communicate with people in the way most comfortable to them
  • Best practices and ethical considerations when administering DISC Assessments
  • The ability to debrief an individual behavioural assessment using the Extended DISC Profiles, Flexibility Diamonds and Special Cases

We also teach you to use our online cloud-based platform FinxS confidently. With a FinxS Account, you are in control of administering DISC assessments and can obtain additional insights for no extra cost.

The course is for consultants starting their journey with DISC to seasoned professionals with a deep understanding of workplace assessments. Some of the typical attendees are:

  • Human Resources Professionals
  • People and Capability Managers
  • Facilitators
  • Coaches
  • Learning and Development Professionals
  • Trainers

    Improve workplace productivity.

    How long is the DISC Accreditation training?

    The Level One Extended DISC In-house and Public Workshops are an interactive and practical full-day course focusing on DISC assessment training. The course runs for 7 hours and includes morning tea and lunch breaks. 

    Our virtual course runs over two days and covers the same content as the public and in-house workshops. The two sessions are 3.5-hours and include a couple of short breaks for food and drink. 

    The first section of the course covers the background of the DISC theory and an overview of the four DISC behavioural styles. We usually allow 120 minutes for this section which includes a video introduction to each DISC style and group discussion.

    We build a solid foundation of the four primary DISC styles and discuss their pressure points, stressors and fears of the DISC personality types. Learn to pinpoint motivators and de-motivators. Understand how people are motivated, approach tasks and goals, experience stress and are likely to communicate. These attributes help to identify if an individual is working against their natural style, using more energy to perform specific tasks, or experiencing stress from the work environment. This section is crucial for managers to help spot when their employees are operating under a significant amount of stress. We allocate 30 minutes to cover this section.

    A large portion of the afternoon focuses on debriefing the Extended DISC reports, analysing the differences between Natural and Adjusted profiles, spotting patterns in the DISC profiles and tips when debriefing reports.

    The last part of the day covers statistics in the Australasian and Global populations, some best practice guidelines when administering DISC assessments, and ethical considerations. We discuss some leadership considerations for the range of DISC profiles and also trends observed in the population over the last 20 years.
