Many thanks to Executive coach and trainer Bob Peter for stepping in at the last minute to lead us in discussion on the use of the DiSC assessment to inform our leadership styles.  We went through a series of exercises within our parish teams and throughout the whole group to gain additional insights into how we can partner with others to drive change and progress in a productive fashion.  Participants were given a personalized DiSC score to use in their work and keys to how they can best work with others in the community who may have a different leadership style.  For future sessions, we hope that the insights gained here will allow every member of the Institute to become more effective in managing teams and organizations to deliver services in their communities, particularly to those members who have experienced trauma.
