Student Leadership Program conducts DISC Analysis Workshop
Thirty AUS students attended the DISC analysis workshop conducted by the Office of Student Affairs' Student Leadership Program (SLP) on November 10, 2014 as a part of the Student Training and Workshop Series. The widely used DISC Behavioral Style Model focuses on understanding and communicating and provides students with training opportunities that sharpen and develop their skills as well as prepare them for successful leadership.
"Attending the DISC Analysis Workshop gave me a great opportunity to understand people's personalities around me and especially understand my own. The workshop was an event that gathered some AUS students from different backgrounds, different majors, and different academic levels to discuss personalities and how to deal with each personality effectively.
I believe that the information I got from the workshop will definitely help me in my studies, designs and my future career as an interior designer. It is important to be able to predict others' behaviors and understand their needs, which will make my communication skills effective," added Hanin Hazeem, a senior majoring in interior design.
"By participating in this workshop, students became self-aware and got a better perception of their own personality. They learned that individuals are different but can easily be predicted. We know the importance of understanding the personality of others in eliminating conflicts, therefore, our aim is to ensure that students have the knowledge and information to make better and more realistic future decisions," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.
