Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals: Understand Your Personality to Advance Your Career


Have you ever experienced two employees that are frequently in conflict? A manager that does not seem to “get you”? A baby boomer or millennial employee who are asked to work together on a project but just cannot figure each other out? These are examples of when it’s time for DiSC to step in!

At this event, we will explore DiSC, a personality assessment designed to help you understand yourself AND other people too. It is a critical tool for determining your natural behavior style, which in turn, improves communication, reduces conflict and helps to understand people who are not like you…. or too much like you.

Our goal is to help you work more effectively with others especially cross-generally and up the ladder. Through personal insights into your own behavioral strengths and challenges, you will learn to better relate to others and potentially ask for that promotion you want!

Ask your HR professional, management and leadership team to join you! We highly encourage you to take advantage of taking the assessment before the program. It will be the best few minutes of your career development, trust us!

Our YP Series is for all members and includes light refreshments.
