Using DISC to Build Strong and Successful Churches

By Tiffany Myers Cole on July 11, 2014

Potential unlockedDISC is a useful tool in any organization that relies on people for its success. Businesses, sales teams, life coaches, consulting practices, and educational institutions have all found ways to use DISC and William Marston’s theories of human behavior to enact positive changes for their members and employees. DISC can be used to increase productivity, strengthen communication, build strong teams, and capitalize on the innate strengths of staff, volunteers, and employees.

Churches and ministries are excellent examples of organizations that rely on people for success. Churches and ministries are only as strong as their congregation, volunteers, and staff. PeopleKeys understands this, and offers DISC solutions specifically tailored to meet the unique needs of Christian organizations. Christian Perspectives in Applied Behavioral Analysis and the Certified Behavioral Life Coach courses are two examples of popular DISC training courses with a Christian focus. Now, PeopleKeys is planning to take things one step further with its newest product for the Christian market: MinistryKeys.
