Assessing the Assessments with Denise Myers & Jamie Gairo
In order to be an effective leader, you need professional development, I believe that you also need personal development just as much, if not more, than traditional professional development. I know many great leaders who have used their personal development growth to impact teams & businesses.
When it comes to assessments there is no shortage, love assessments, relational assessments, skin/hair/muscle/fat assessments, the list goes on and on. An assessment is a tool, and as with all tools, it is how you use them that is important. On this week’s episode we explore the DISC & the Generation 2 DISC, to help me do this I enlisted the help of 2 experts, Denise Myers and Jamie Gairo
