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,


DiSC Classic

DiSC is a popular system for understanding oneself and others, to communicate and work together most effectively.  The increased understanding to be gained can be applied to almost any workplace situation:  managing and supervising, communicating with customers and coworkers, teaming, sales, and vendor relationships.  Participants learn more about their unique strengths and areas to improve.  They then apply it to understanding others and appreciating each others’ strengths.

This workshop is customized for specific needs and objectives.  A typical format will include:

  • Before class, participants respond to one of the Everything DiSC assessments – Workplace, Management, or Sales.  They will view their personalized report prior to the workshop.
  • In the workshop, participants learn more about DiSC styles that are similar to theirs and those that are different.  They view video clips of typical workplace interactions, and identify strategies to maximize effectiveness.
  • Various small group discussions and activities help participants apply what they are learning to their “real world” experiences.
  • Goals and action plans are formulated, focusing on how to strengthen relationships by using DiSC style strengths.

Note:  This workshop may also be used to train internal trainers to use DiSC in their organizations.
