What You'll Get

Whether you’re working with an overly assertive employee, one that seems too sensitive, or one that simply won’t budge—the DISC Leadership Kickstarter Course will help you communicate more effectively.

Here’s what you’ll get:

A DISC Leadership Assessment and Report - Valued at $77 on Its Own!

You’ll complete the online DISC Leadership Assessment before starting the course.

The assessment takes about 10 – 15 minutes to complete and yields a personalized and actionable 55-page report.

If this sounds too daunting, don’t worry. I’ll break it down for you.

You’ll get your link to take your online assessment within one business day of enrolling and paying for the program. Then, as soon as you complete the assessment, you’ll get your report instantly via email.

Certified by the Assessment Standards Institute

As you shop for a DISC assessment, remember that not all assessments are created equal. The DISC assessment I use is certified by the Assessment Standards Institute (ASI) and won’t break the bank.

ASI provides verifiably objective testing and reporting that meet the standards established by the American Psychological Association (APA) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). ASI’s battery of tests is both voluntary and transparent.

Four Self-Paced Online Learning Modules

You also get four on-demand, online learning modules totaling 25+ tutorial videos.

In Module 1, I’m going to help you build a strong foundation for success. You’ll review the key elements of the DISC Model and uncover the major sources of conflict between the Four DISC Styles. You’ll also identify the DISC styles of your direct reports.

In Module 2, I’ll guide you in interpreting the results of your personalized, 55-page DISC Leadership Report. You’ll analyze and reflect on your results in alignment with DISC principles. You’ll also develop an action plan for leadership communication success.


In Module 3, I’ll walk you through my step-by-step process for getting three-level feedback—from bosses, direct reports, and colleagues—to evaluate your self-perception. You’ll use checklists, tips, and tools to secure, compile, and evaluate vital insights for your development. These tools will also help you relieve the anxieties associated with feedback-seeking—yours and theirs.

In Module 4, I’ll teach you how to facilitate less stressful and more productive performance-related conversations with your direct reports. You’ll walk away with tips, tools, and strategies to adapt you leadership communication based on each employee’s DISC style. What’s more, I’ll show you how to integrate DISC adaptability into my step-by-step process for effective performance improvement conversations. 

Downloadable Course Workbooks

The course comes with four downloadable workbooks containing worksheets, checklists, and tools you can use over and over as you manage other people’s performance.

You Can Have Effective and Rewarding Performance Conversations

The complete course including the assessment is Only $97.00 if purchased by July 22, 2021.

Why So Inexpensive?

This is a brand new online self-paced training  comprised of pre-recorded lessons. I’m looking for a group of leaders who will provide valuable feedback so I can fine tune the course before I sell it at full price. 

It's a Win-Win

You get a complete course using the ASI-certified DISC assessment that will help you implement the DISC Model quickly to elevate your leadership communication.

You’ll also have access to me for additional questions throughout the course at no extra cost. 

And I get your valuable feedback that will help me improve the course.

Who Am I To Teach This?

Hi, I’m Sylvia Melena. 

I’m the Founder and CEO of Melena Consulting Group and the international award-winning and best-selling leadership author of Supportive Accountability: How to Inspire People and Improve Performance. I’m also a Certified DISC Trainer and an Association for Talent Development (ATD) Master Instructional Designer™.

With a Master of Arts in Leadership and Organizational Studies and 20 years experience in the trenches of management, I have coached, developed, and trained hundreds of managers and supervisors in person and have impacted thousands more through my work.

My leadership philosophy has been featured by the Society of Human Resources Management HR Today, the Human Performance Association, Entrepreneur, LEADx, Fit Small Business, and other outlets.

And I’m Still Working on My Leadership

You see, strong leadership is a work in progress.

I’m an off-the-charts DISC “D.”

If you don’t know what that means yet, don’t worry, you will by the end of this course.

In my early career, I was frequently blunt and sometimes even rude. But I was fortunate to work with people who cared about me enough to give me honest feedback.

I particularly remember a brutally honest reaction from a co-worker like it was yesterday.

I don’t remember what I said to trigger him or how I said it, but I vividly recall the horror on his face and his shocking response to my affront: “Shoot from the hip, why don’t you! Next time, try using a little tact!”

I was stunned, momentarily speechless, and in disbelief. And I’m never speechless.

I didn’t know what he meant. So, I asked him to explain, and he did.

Thanks to his honest feedback and the support of others, I had an amazing 20-year leadership career in health and human services. I had the honor of directly managing workforces from about 80 to 300 employees and supporting performance for up to 1,400 in my senior leadership roles.

And most people enjoyed working with me and giving their best.

Yes, I said, “Most.”

The truth is, not everyone will enjoy working with you no matter how much you adapt your leadership communication. And that’s okay. Not everyone will like you. But that’s not your goal anyways.

Your goal is to be the best leader you can be, create a great workplace, promote accountability, and achieve measurable results. These are the things I intentionally worked on to elevate my leadership.

Because of my ongoing journey, I’m a firm believer in the power of positive feedback and supportive accountability to transform lives. But I also know it’s hard sometimes.

That’s why I’m excited to launch my upcoming online DISC Leadership Kickstarter course. It will give you everything you need to adapt your approach and communicate more effectively with the people on your team.

I hope to see you there! And if you have any questions, feel free to email me at smelena@melenaconsulting.com.

Warmest regards,

Sylvia Melena
