Take Flight Learning

Take Flight breaths new life into the age-old DISC model. By linking four birds to the model, people remember the styles like never before. Take Flight Learning makes self-awareness easy, which creates better teamwork, higher levels of team engagement, lower turnover, and better results.

What is Take Flight Learning?

Take Flight Learning provides the means for employees to have a clear understanding of themselves and a deeper understanding and appreciation of those they interact with. Participants will leave the initial training with an understanding of the four unique behavioral styles, the knowledge to identify the styles of others, and the best approaches they can take to ensure good communication pathways.

Who is Take Flight Learning for?

  • A school campus
  • All principals in a district
  • All leadership at the central administration
  • Other groups who would benefit from knowing the talents and traits of themselves and peers

Why Take Flight Learning?

Most DISC sessions generate a high level of excitement because in general, people enjoy learning more about themselves. But does the training change behavior? Do the participants remember the training? Did the training give a good return on investment for the school?

Instead of focusing on letters, the Take Flight Learning DISC training program focuses on application, not on a model that will soon be forgotten.
