On-Line DISC Behavioral Studies - Level 1 Train-The-Trainer Certification Program...for teachers, coaches, consultants, facilitators, trainers and thought leaders/experts.


 Why you should be in the virtual room for this program?

Have you ever found yourself in any of these situations:

  • Frustrated with people at work or at home?
  • Wondering what people around you are thinking?
  • Scratching your head in confusion about the way people around you act and behave?

Chances are your answer to at least one of these questions is yes. Humans are described as “individuals” for a reason. We’re all wired in different ways. So, it’s not surprising that we behave in different ways. Figuring out what makes others tick can be challenging. Figuring out what makes you tick can be equally difficult.

What if you could gain a Behavioral Based GPS Skill Set (GPS = Great People Skill) to guide you to connect with and build relationships with others — by design rather than chance? What if you could gain insights into your own behavior and then modify it to get along better in different situations? Wouldn’t life be better and easier? If, the answer to any of these questions is yes, then the On-Line DISC Behavioral Studies - Level 1 Train-The-Trainer Certification Program is for you.

This unique program will give you the tools and insights you need to deal with others effectively and to heighten your own self-awareness. In the space of two days (4 x 3-hours session with reading assignments), you’ll learn how to:

  • Cut to the core of human actions and interactions and draw conclusions
  • Use your conclusions to gain a deeper understanding 
  • Gain incredible clarity to achieve positive and productive communication.

Equip yourself for success in all of your relationships.

You’ll start your DISC training by learning why people often behave the way they do. Then, you’ll learn how to apply key behavioral insights to understand and deal with human behavior. The final result? You’ll walk away equipped to make a positive impact on your relationships, whether they are professional or personal.

During Level 1 training, you’ll cover the DISC Model of Human Behavior. This framework is based on the work of William Marston, a psychologist and inventor who developed the DISC theory in the early 20th century. Marston argued that people largely behave in predictable patterns. He illustrated his theory with a chart that showed basic personality profiles divided among four quadrants. Today, people still rely on Marston’s ideas to understand themselves as well as to analyze and respond to how others think, feel, and act.

"Gord has helped me tremendously over the years and really transformed my approach to teaching and coaching. He inspired me to be more aware of different styles to communicate and connect with people I coach and work with on a daily basis. If I run into a unique situation, he has provided me with terrific advice. I feel very supported by Gord and his style in helping has been of great value."

"Every conversation with Gordo has inspired me to have more meaningful interactions with those around me. As the head coach of my hockey program and leader within the college, the mentorship and coaching has been invaluable to me. To have the ability to regularly talk with Gordo about ways to be a more transformational leader and motivator has proven to be a key part of my ongoing development and influence.

Simply, Gordo gives me confidence that I can handle anything that comes my way, which allows me to be a more successful individual."

"Gord as a performance coach, is the real deal for me. He has coached and spoken powerfully into my life over the last 12 years. I have always found that in 5 minutes or less, when I am in a face to face with Gord, he speaks directly into every role I have in life. It is literally mind blowing.

It has been like that from our first face to face, 12 years ago to just a month ago. I've never seen anything like it before. If you allow him, Gord can get right past all the BS and speak directly into your mindset in no time. His coaching isn't just pumping your tires with motivation, Gord gets to the core of who you are and helps remove any blocks you have in becoming the best version of yourself and living your life's purpose to the fullness.

If you are a coach or leader needing a performance mindset coach, a life coach or a relationship coach, I highly recommend Gord... and get your pad and pen ready because you will walk away with more than you can imagine."

"I have known Gordon MacFarlane for 9 years I have learned how to develop and grow my relationships with my players and colleagues more effectively to produce the desired success and results of a top developmental Junior hockey program. Working with Gordo over the years has helped me develop a champion's mindset that has allowed me to grow tremendously as a leader and coach. As a direct result my programs success continues to grow along with my player advancement list which includes capturing our first National Championship last year.

I can't stress enough the importance of having a performance mindset coach to help anyone who is in a leadership role and works with people on a regular basis like I do."

"I have known and worked with Gordo over the past 15 years and he has been an excellent resource for me as a coach when I was looking to improve my overall communication and connection skills with my athletes.

The step by step process he has provided me has allowed me to be able to influence and coach my athletes to their potential. Thanks to his investment in me, I have been able to rise through the coaching ranks from Juniors to NCAA Division I and eventually to the NHL.

I would highly recommend Gordo as a performance mindset coach and trainer to take your confidence and influence to the next level.

Gordo’s ability to lead you and train you in performance mindset training concepts is second to none. His influence allowed us to be better prepared and better equipped to deal with people issues that would have kept us from performing to our potential years earlier. Highly recommend adding Gordo as a must have to your team of coaches.

He has been my secret weapon for several years, and I owe a lot to him. Not only has been a great role model but is one of my closest friends."
