Dear DiSC and EPIC Customers:

I arrived home from vacation this summer having made a big decision. The time has come for me to reduce my professional activities.

My years as a distributor (now “partner”) with Performax, then Carlson Learning, then Inscape, and now Wiley have been some of the happiest and most fulfilling of my life. I’ve truly enjoyed using these fabulous products as they have evolved, and sharing them with you.

I gave careful thought as to who would be the very best person to take over for me. After careful thought and discussion, I have asked Sharon Wingron, longtime colleague and friend, to be your new Inscape/Wiley, EPIC account distributor, and resource. Sharon’s company Wings of Success has been active for over 10 years, and clients and customers include many companies large and small. Sharon’s sister Cindy provides support for EPIC accounts and her husband Mark handles the accounting. A great team that I am confident will continue to serve you as I have, providing on-the-spot answers to your questions about EPIC, product choices and application questions.

The formal transition will take place October 1. EPIC users do not need to do anything - your account, credits, and stored reports will be transferred automatically. Before and after this time I will be in touch to introduce you to Sharon and her team so you can see for yourself the type of support you can expect to receive from them.

A huge THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for the interesting conversations and thought-provoking discussions we have shared. I plan to continue doing a bit of consulting and academic teaching, spend more time with my new granddaughter, continue my Making Training Stick writing and presentations, and do more travel for fun. I look forward to staying connected with you in these and other ways!

Warm regards,


Barbara Carnes, Ph.D.


Electronic Profile Information Center

EPIC (Electronic Profile Information Center) is an online platform that provides a simple way to deliver Inscape's most advanced learning instruments via the internet. From added features to an enhanced narrative style, EPIC-based profiles offer advantages even Inscape's paper instruments can't match — this is what we call the “EPIC Edge.”

Through EPIC, organizations can use their training time more effectively. Employees can complete assessments online in advance of training sessions, ensuring that every minute of training time is used to its full advantage. Plus, the EPIC system takes care of scoring the profiles, saving time and increasing accuracy.

EPIC system administrators control access to Inscape’s online profiles. Administrators can issue access codes to anyone in the world via email, making the platform ideal for the needs of multilocation businesses. System administrators also determine when and where respondents view their profile results to manage every step of the learning process. Plus, the EPIC platform allows trainers to personalize the response process by customizing the splash page and the report cover with their company or department’s contact information and logo.

The EPIC system also offers advanced functionality that permits system administrators to track various activities. This functionality allows administrators to audit system activity and determine how many profiles have been completed by training participants at any time. Through EPIC, administrators can also view, print, or email completed reports, as the system maintains an archive of completed profiles.

The EPIC system offers reports and features not available in Inscape’s paper profiles through a variety of auxiliary features, ranging from composite group results to overviews of a team’s interpersonal relationships. EPIC also gives organizations the capability to build group reports from data stored in the system, providing an analysis of team dynamics. As teams change, new group reports can be generated from existing data, adding new understanding without requiring more training time.
