Student Leadership Program conducts successful DISC Analysis Workshop in Spring Semester 2016
Seven students from the Student Leadership Program attended the DISC Analysis Workshop on April 18, 2016 as a part of the Student Training and Workshop Series. The widely used DISC Behavioral Style Model focuses on understanding, communicating and appreciating the four primary behavioral styles.
"The DISC Analysis Workshop was not only useful but also fun and interesting," said Maitha Alhosani, a sophomore majoring in biology. "We were engaged in unique activities and got to know our personalities and learn about others as well. On a personal level, I think I will carry what I learned in this workshop throughout my life since its applicable in every situation."
Nada Mourad, a senior majoring in finance, said that the DISC Analysis Workshop was by far one of her favorite workshops among the ones that attended at AUS. "It was quite interesting to learn and know more about different personality types. In my opinion, every AUS student should attend this workshop at least once before they graduate in order to learn the best techniques and practices to deal with people based on their personalities. What I enjoyed the most about this workshop was when we were divided into pairs and we had to come up with a scenario that included two different personality types, while other participants had to guess what these types were. This activity enhanced our team working skills through dealing with new people," she said.
"We are pleased to hear that AUS students learned and enjoyed the workshop. Understanding people's personalities goes a long way in minimizing conflicts. The DISC Analysis Workshop is conducted every semester and we encourage more students to participate in it," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students.
