DISC Training at NSSA Develops Essential Leadership Skills
PeopleKeys recently received a request from the National Nuclear Security Administration (NSSA) to assist the organization in becoming a more effective team in regards to communication, integration, and working collaboratively.
Lead trainer, John Schindell, of PeopleKeys, Inc. was able work with members of the Savanah River Field Office (SRFO) at a training held at the Georgia Cyber Center. The goal of the workshop was to build self-awareness by understanding personality styles using the PeopleKeys DISC model of behavioral analysis. This training focused on increasing understanding of personal priorities and demonstrating how DISC style impacts leadership, productivity, time-management and decision-making skills.
The goal was to leave the SRFO staff better equipped to understand and adapt to others using the awareness of different peoples’ personality styles, and respond appropriately through behaviors. This insight will allow participants to be more effective as individuals as well as a part of the team.
In the workshop, self-awareness was established through familiarization with the PeopleKeys DISC personality system and a review of individual DISC assessments.
Participants learned how to read the styles of others and strategies for improving communication. Participants were also challenged with the understanding of this information and realization that there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to leading, but rather the best approach to lead depends on the individual(s) they are working with.
The National Nuclear Security Administration plays a vital role in the defense of our country. Established by Congress in 2000, NNSA is a semi-autonomous agency within the U.S. Department of Energy responsible for enhancing national security through the military application of nuclear science. NNSA maintains and enhances the safety, security, and effectiveness of the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile without nuclear explosive testing; works to reduce the global danger from weapons of mass destruction; provides the U.S. Navy with safe and effective nuclear propulsion; and responds to nuclear and radiological emergencies in the United States and abroad.
PeopleKeys began providing DISC Behavioral training to the NSSA in 2017 when they we invited to work with staff at The Livermore Field Office in Livermore, California.
