MARLTON, N.J., Jan. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Take Flight Learning announced that the company has been recognized in the 2016 HR & Training Awards. Corporate Vision Magazine named Taking Flight with DISC as the Best Personality Styles Training Program in the United States. The award winners were announced on Friday, January 13.
Launched in 2012, Take Flight Learning began as a spinoff of Team Builder Plus, a team building company founded by Merrick Rosenberg and Jeffrey Backal in 1991. They created Take Flight Learning to teach the DISC personality styles, the subject of Rosenberg's first book, Take Flight!
Take Flight Learning reinvented the DISC model by representing the personality styles with birds instead of letters. This approach enabled people to remember the personality styles and use them in the daily interactions with coworkers, friends, and family.
As Corporate Vision writes, "By representing the styles with visually appealing eagles, parrots, doves, and owls, not only do the styles come to life, but people can more easily identify with the characteristics typically associated with the birds. The birds imprint upon the mind and users retain style insights more effectively with the birds than with the letters D-I-S-C."
In 2016, Take Flight Learning cemented its leadership in DISC training with Rosenberg's second book, The Chameleon: Life-Changing Wisdom for Anyone Who Has a Personality or Knows Someone Who Does. To date, Rosenberg has taught the reimagined DISC model to two-thirds of the Fortune 100 and more than 25,000 people total. Take Flight Learning's newest program, Chameleon Selling, applies the lessons of The Chameleon, teaching salespeople to adapt their strategy to each personality type.
Corporate Vision chose Take Flight Learning through a rigorous selection process, which determined the winners by a combination of votes gathered from industry partners and in-house research performed by the magazine's industry insiders and corporate specialists. According to Corporate Vision, its award programs aim to "shine a spotlight on the brightest, best performing and most deserving companies and individuals from around the business world."
"We set out to share the DISC model in an interactive, relatable way, and the response has been powerful," said Merrick Rosenberg, CEO of Take Flight Learning. "For us, it's rewarding to see the four birds go viral in organizations and transform the way people work together. We're honored that Corporate Vision has recognized our company, and we're excited to keep the DISC renaissance going."
