Management Essentials Training Series

Let Purple Ink lead your management development efforts with an interactive training series! Our Management Essentials series consists of six interactive sessions based upon proven, best-practice management techniques and methods that will equip managers with the necessary skills to lead great teams.

The series utilizes the DiSC assessment, a behavior assessment tool based on the DiSC theory of psychologist William Moulton Marston that centers on four different behavioral traits: dominance, influence, steadiness, and compliance/contentiousness. The DiSC model provides a common language that can be used to help individuals better understand themselves and to adapt their behaviors in relating and working with others. This tool will be a foundational element to support all components of the training.

This is a six month program that will meet virtually via Zoom on the fourth Wednesday of each month.
