Michael gives us an accurate comprehensive understanding of the people in our leadership team. We are more empathic, meet other’s needs, and more productive. I use what was learned in the reports repeatedly every day.

It was a comprehensive study of the DISC. I came away with a very thorough understanding. It was as though light bulbs kept going off in my head with everything new Dr. A said. I felt I knew the DISC pretty well before I took this, but found out I had a lot to learn!

Many business management presenters (particularly if they have an academic background) have a tendency to complicate relatively simple concepts. Dr Michael Abelson however is a master of taking complicated concepts and presenting then in a simple, logical manner.

  • Each webinar consists of instruction, examples and application of the materials in that webinar.
  • In addition to our BluePrint™ Training Manual, you will be guided through the necessary reading in THE standard of textbooks (the one all others strive to be like) on DISC; The Universal Language DISC: A Reference Manual. You are directed to read the exact pages that pertain to the lesson at hand via our BluePrint™ manual.
