What You'll Learn

In addition to the DISC Assessment and Report, you get four learning modules totaling 20+ tutorial videos. Here's what you'll take away:

In Module 1, I'm going help you build a strong foundation for success. You'll review the DISC model, the 4 DISC styles, and the DISC assessment. You'll also practice identifying the DISC style of one of your direct reports using behavioral cues and simple tools.

In Module 2, I'll guide you and show you how to interpret  the results of your personalized, 54-page DISC Leadership Report. You'll analyze and reflect on your Report and identify your leadership strengths, as well as your peaks and valleys and opportunities for growth.

In Module 3, I'll walk you through my step-by-step process on how to get three-level feedback -- from bosses, direct reports, and colleagues -- so you can evaluate your perceptions of your leadership communication. 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, you'll uncover the source of conflict between the DISC Styles and master the art of adaptability. You'll walk with away tips, tools, and strategies to lead more effective and productive conversations with your direct reports.

A Message from Sylvia Melena

Hi, I’m Sylvia Melena!

And 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 truly 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.

It was such a gift to me, and it made a profound difference in my life.  I wouldn’t be here today, teaching others how to adapt their communication approach, if he hadn’t given me that jolt.

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/executive 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. 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 to create a great workplace, promote accountability, and achieve measurable results.

These are the things I intentionally worked on to elevate my leadership. 

Today, I’m the Founder & CEO of Melena Consulting Group, a leadership and management talent development and consulting company in sunny California. I have a Master's in Leadership and Organizational Studies and I'm the author of Supportive Accountability: How to Inspire People and Improve Performance.

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

I'm also an Association for Talent Development (ATD) Master Instructional Designer™

and a Certified DISC Trainer.  I've had the honor to coach, develop, and train hundreds of managers and supervisors.

But most importantly, I have a profound love for people.

And by the way, I still fall short sometimes. But leadership is a work in progress.

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 you lead regardless of their personalities.

I hope to see you there!

Warmest regards,

Sylvia Melena
