The DOPE Bird Personality Test, which is an acronym for Dove, Owl, Peacock, Eagle, will assist individuals in creating more effective work relationships and understanding how to communicate among different personality styles. This 4-Bird personality test promotes self-assessment, intensifies self improvement, complements career and personal development and can be used to improve how we interact with others.

 Employees who are self-aware, are more likely to maximize their talents, recognize and manage their challenges and produce better results. Every employee is a co-creator of workplace culture. When people understand their own style and show respect for individual differences, they impact the culture in a positive way. By applying the wisdom of the styles, each person improves the culture, one interaction at a time. Theres an expression in neuroscience, what wires together fires together. This training wires DISC to existing knowledge and thus it fires at just the right time.
