Extended DISC for Powerful Communicators


Understand the code behind human behaviour


Discover how to become a masterful communicator by easily predicting human behaviour. Instead of being baffled by what people do and say, learn how to quickly and effortlessly connect with other people so you can be a powerful influencer as a leader.

Ever left a conversation scratching your head wondering what planet the other person was from?
Leadership can certainly brings its challenges and one of the biggest challenges is being able to influence others - your team, your peers, your customers, in fact just about everyone (including your kids!)

It’s frustrating - you know what you want to say, it makes sense to you but you can tell by their glazed eyes that they just didn’t get it and you know in your gut that you will be needing to explain it yet another time (at least!).
Imagine knowing exactly how to communicate with someone in a way that hits the mark first time around? It all flows smoothly, you’re able to adapt and blend your communication style to match anyone you want to influence.
Imagine being able to predict human behaviour in others - it is like having an instruction manual that explains why people do what they do. It reveals exactly how to deal with people & step into their shoes to create stronger connections & get results quickly.

What is Extended DISC?

Extended DISC is a psychometric and workplace assessment tool designed to help individuals, teams and organisations to become more successful.
Extended DISC provides easy to use information on how to modify human behaviour. Extended DISC supports individuals and businesses to improve relationships, communication and key aspects of business such as Leadership and Management.
Extended DISC assessments are based on concepts of human behaviour from well renowned psychologists and behavioural theorists.
Today Extended DISC assessments are part of the daily management system of thousands of organisations all around the world, with over one million assessments completed annually.

The DISC behavioural styles have been very interesting and beneficial for each of the Management team to understand how each other ticks and how they can communicate with each other in a more effective manner.  Going through this in the workshop environment allowed each member to see how their and each others particular style works and take away a clearer understanding of each other which is evident in Board meetings and dealings since participating in the workshop.

  • Being surprised and frustrated by certain people and have no idea how to change it

Individual Extended DISC Profiling Report & Unpack session

$800 (Ex GST)

Dive deep into what makes you tick.

The beauty of completing an Extended DISC behavioural profile is that it measures not only your conscious behavioural style, but also your unconscious or natural behavioural style.

Only by comparing both is it possible to look at the emotions communicated by you at the time of completion of the questionnaire - such as stress levels, uncertainty of your role, insecurity, frustration, pressure to change and more. And as a coach I know exactly how to navigate you through these challenges.

The tailored report is easy to understand, extremely accurate and prompts discussions about how you can work to your strengths, whilst coming up with strategies to improve your blind spots.

The unpack is unique in its combination of delivery methods:
Online videos that you can tap into any time to deepen your understanding; and
An individual unpack session where we go through your report in detail together so you’re ready to take immediate action


Extended DISC Profiling & Workshops for Teams

This is where the individual reports and unpacks as mentioned above happen for each member of the team. Once everyone has a base understanding of their own preferred style and can easily identify key behaviours of the other styles, then we’re ready to take this to a whole new level.

Using DISC as a model, it helps people to understand, appreciate, and work more effectively with others. Miscommunications get cleared up. Conflicts get productively addressed and resolved. And team members become more motivated.

The team workshop focuses on the team’s combined profile, allowing the opportunity for everyone to deepen their connection and understanding of each other. Through collaboration, the team learns how to become adaptable, self-aware and start listening at a deeper level to their colleagues. They discover a way of talking about differences in a positive, non-judgmental way.

And they have fun with each other in the process!


Facilitated workshops for large groups

Usually in groups of 40 or more, workshop participants will learn about their own behaviours. They will recognise and explore ways they prefer to act, relate, work, socialise, and deal with change, as well as the ways they prefer to be approached, consulted, and involved in a group process.

Participants will then learn how to recognise other people’s styles, their strengths and limitations, and how to work more effectively with them.

By the end of the workshop, participants will:
Know more about what makes them tick – why some things come naturally to them (and others not so naturally!)
Understand their colleagues, friends and family and why they do what they do
Gain an understanding of individual behaviour and how it plays out in the workplace
Know how to build rapport and cooperation with others instantly
Develop better ways of working together
Reduce conflict and miscommunication
Improve team collaboration

The workshop itself involves people in a highly interactive process of self-discovery and insight. People recognise themselves and others as the behavioural patterns are described. They discover a way of talking about differences in a positive, non-judgmental way.

And they have fun with each other in the process!

As a Professional Services organisation, QMetrix’s people are its most important asset. Finding the right candidates to join our team is absolutely paramount. A critical component of the recruiting process is obtaining a deeper understanding of the prospective candidate’s natural style of work by generating a DISC profile. Inspiring Success helps us to interpret the profile, enabling QMetrix to comprehend how the candidate will fit within the team, and importantly, what motivates and demotivates them. It also enables us to work with the candidate’s strengths and acknowledge potential areas of challenge once they have joined the team.

Vanessa introduced me to a completely different perspective, working through the eyes of DISC. I have improved my confidence levels and really influenced change in my organisation.

- Cory Kennedy, Kennedy Trailers

It opened my eyes to who I am and why I do what I do. It made me understand what my stretch areas were and we were able to create strategies to combat these. 

- Matthew Cook, Southern Rural Water

I have done lots of workshops similar to this throughout my career and this I must tell you; this has been the best workshop that I have had the pleasure in encountering!

- Bernie Nunn, Hibbert & Hodges Lawyers

Vanessa ran an engaging and highly interactive virtual teambuilding session using the DISC profile tool. With a few new team members who had started just as we were switching to remote work, a team building session was important for improving team cohesion, and DISC in particular was valuable in helping us all to get to know each other better. In the weeks after the workshop, I've noticed team members referring to insights from the workshop regularly in team meetings, so the message has clearly stuck. Thanks, Vanessa!
