    Location: DePaul - O'Hare Campus, 8770 W. Bryn Mawr, Room 207, Chicago, IL (the building is on the NE corner of Bryn Mawr and EAST River Road.)

    Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” Ferris Bueller

    The 21st century moves at a pace not even Ferris Bueller could imagine. This has led to a desire for faster ways of connecting with each other in the workplace. Many companies are using the DiSC model to assess different work styles and promote self-awareness and social-awareness, bridging communication gaps and working more effectively together.

    DiSC is comprised of 4 key work styles Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness. Participants will complete the Everything DiSC Workplace assessment in advance and bring the report to the session. Angela will review the 4 work styles and how this model can be used to improve communication with others of varying styles.

    Special notes about the assessment: 

    • Anyone who previously completed the Everything DiSC Workplace assessment should bring your report and will not need to pay for the assessment. DiSC Classic is a different version.
    • If you purchase the assessment and complete it we will not be able to supply refund for a no show. Incomplete assessments may qualify for a refund if you are unable to attend.

  • Finding the Linkages between Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and Gallup StrengthsFinder 2.0

    Saturday, September 16th, 2017 at 11am - 1pm
    Location: TENTATIVE: Downers Grove Public Library: 1050 Curtiss St, Downers Grove, IL 60515

    Participants will need to purchase StrengthsFinder 2.0 by Tom Rath where they will find a code at the back of the book to take the online assessment to identify their top 5 strengths as defined by Gallup’s research. Participants will gain the most if they know their MBTI type.

    Several weeks prior to the meeting, participants will receive articles that compare and contrast the two instruments. Meeting discussion will allow time for participants to reflect on their own results, and for the group to share insight they’ve gained from the readings.


    Peggy O’Connor is an organizational change management consultant who has a keen interest in Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and Gallup StrengthsFinder 2.0. Throughout her
    career, she has worked with leaders and employees to engage and prepare people for change, resolved conflict by improving communication, and achieved results by aligning talent to the challenge.

  • Our Functions Are Our Gifts in Life! - Let's Talk About Our Gifts!

    Wednesday, October 25th, 2017 at 7pm - 9pm
    Location: DePaul - O'Hare Campus, 8770 W. Bryn Mawr, Room 207, Chicago, IL (the building is on the NE corner of Bryn Mawr and EAST River Road.)

    "Type" as we know it, has revolved around measurement using the MBTI. But type itself is so much more than that. What we call 'functions' are our GIFTS as humans. They are essential and deep, yet abstract. Together we can improve our understanding of their strength and importance, and that could be a major benefit, not just for us practitioners, but for all people.
