When he had his first responsibility as a leader of a technical team, in an insurance company, he discovered that he was going to need a lot of skills to achieve the objectives of the team. Unfortunately, those skills should come from what his intuition. At that time, nobody had told him clearly what it means to be a leader and how he should carry it out. He was lucky and the team's results came through, but he wasn't sure why he had achieved it. A few months later, he would have the opportunity to participate in a workshop on interpersonal skills with DISC, that day everything became clear, he began to understand what soft skills were.
A couple of years later, he was trained as a consultant in DISC and later he started to train consultants on how to use this methodology to develop leaders, to improve teamwork, to decrease conflict and appreciate diversity in work groups, to train sales and customer service teams and to help other to improve communication, among many other applications that DISC gives us.
Something very particular with his experience as a consultant, working with other consultants and executives, is that all people (without exception and after having trained thousands of people) were absolutely satisfied with what they learn and the experience itself, as well as they understood easily the concept and know how to apply it in their daily lives, personal and professional. This made him passionate about the DISC concept.
He has worked for years with multiple methodologies, tools and different types of consultants from different cultures and countries.
