In today’s episode, Lee and I talk with Mark Horstman of the Manager Tools podcast on using the DiSC model for more effective communication. Manager Tools is currently the #1 business podcast in iTunes in the US and in Canada. Mark and his partner, Mike Auzenne, produce a weekly podcast covering management topics and steps you can take today to become a better manager. So many of their topics are very relevant to the world of project managers as well! If you’d like more information on the DiSC model, please become a registered member of the Manager Tools website and you’ll have access to their special monthly podcasts - the March, April, May, and June podcasts cover each of the four communication types in detail. Enjoy!

    Amazing discussion!
    one tips for the listeners - it’s better to download the summary PDF before listening, so you can look at the 4 personality types during the conversation.

    Hi Oren! Thanks for the tip! I wish I would have told the listeners to do that before starting the conversation! Lesson learned for next time. Thanks for listening!
