SLP conducts DISC Analysis Workshop
The Student Leadership Program (SLP) at American University of Sharjah (AUS) recently conducted the DISC Analysis Training Workshop for 15 students. DISC is a tool that builds mutual understanding, communication, teamwork, trust and respect among team members.
"The DISC analysis workshop was a wonderful experience," said Ayisha Saleem, a junior business administration and management major. "The best part of the workshop was to analyze and figure out our own personality types. Attending the workshop made me aware of the various personality-types around. Based on the DISC personality elements, I learned how some people get along with a particular type of a personality while others do not. I also got to understand and learn how to deal with the different kinds of personalities around me," she added.
For senior electrical engineering major Uzma Ahmed Din, the workshop proved extremely useful. "The workshop helped me to discover who I am and how people react to my personality. It also helped me understand how to deal with different people," she said. The workshop provided students with a new terminology for describing the differences between personality-types, and helped them learn how to deal and communicate better with people in a personal and professional environment.
"Learning and understanding how to deal with the different personality-types is a key skill to success. We are pleased with the feedback received from students who attended the DISC Analysis Workshop and will continue to conduct it every semester and encourage more students to take part in it," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students.
The workshop was organized as part of the Student Training and Workshop Series by the Office of Student Affairs.
