- Dr. Michelle Harcha - Empowering You and Your Team

to Achieve Your Highest Potential

Everything DiSC® uses the DiSC model to discover your style, priorities, motivators, and stressors through a detailed assessment. Those who undergo the DiSC assessment receive personalized insights that help them better understand themselves and others. With these insights and strategies, the result is a more engaged, collaborative workforce and cohesive work culture.

The Five Behaviors® helps individuals and teams harness the power of teamwork through a unique assessment. The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team® is based on the best-selling leadership book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, by Patrick Lencioni. The goal of this assessment is simple: "To help people discover how to build a truly cohesive and effective team."

The Work is meditation, using the power of inquiry to question our perceptions and the limiting beliefs we create in our own minds. When doing The Work, we’re able to find and challenge the thoughts that cause our stress and discover the answers and wisdom inside ourselves.

Using the DiSC model (Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness), this assessment will help you better understand your own tendencies and preferences. This, in turn, helps you to grow in your role with your company or practice.

The Five Behaviors® often work in tandem with Everything DiSC. It helps your team understand each other’s unique perspectives so they can all better communicate and operate as a team. With continued practice, you’ll develop a high-functioning, cohesive team.

The Work is a meditation, using the power of inquiry to question our reality and tear down the restraints we often create in our own minds. When doing the Work, we’re able to diminish and even eliminate the suffering in our lives caused by stress borne from our own perceptions.
