Client Experiences Workshops & Hiring

Going through the DiSC workshop has been, by far, the best experience. It has helped me in my professional and personal life to see things more clearly through an understanding of others’ personalities.

DEBBIE BROWNE, DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS, TIMMINS FINANCIAL INC.

Debriefing the DiSC® profile was a great experience! I was surprised at how accurate it was. I have known these things deep down but I chose instead to believe what others said about me and my capabilities, keeping buried who I really am and how I truly like to behave. I took on roles in the past that required opposite behaviors to how I naturally prefer to be.

DiSC® is a valuable tool for our team. We have been able to learn how to better communicate with each other, which has improved our work environment. 

MARIELLE JULIEN, OFFICE MANAGER, VOCARI FINANCIAL SOLUTIONS INC.

It is so cool to review this DiSC® profile again and learn more about personalities. Comparing myself side by side with my team provides great tips for me.

The DiSC training with Kim Poulin and her colleagues was an excellent experience for our Communications team. The best element was not so much that everyone’s profile was an exact fit to their personality, but that it got the team talking together. It raised awareness of how people work most effectively, how to navigate conflict situations, how to bring out the best in each other and the strength that comes from having a team with many strong qualities. With a greater understanding of each other and a willingness to learn from the strengths of our colleagues, we are a better team. Highly recommended!

I found the DiSC concept fascinating! I think that the training gave our team an opportunity to get to know each other better and gain a greater understanding about the way we work - both differently and the same! I will use what I learned about how my style can positively impact my co-workers and how to recognize and appreciate what they bring to the table as well. I think it's super important that we use the DiSC training to support a better understanding of how we can interact with each other, but not to pigeon hole each other based on our style profiles.

We were so strapped for resources within our firm, that recruiting externally felt like a daunting process! So glad I made the call to enlist help from The Personal Coach - Kim reached out right away and within days helped us build the job description. She looked after ALL of the details, getting it posted and scanning all incoming resumes to help us find a best fit.  It turned out she found us two amazing candidates and we ended up splitting the role and building the capacity we needed. Kim was very good at keeping us in the loop every step of the way; had great tips and ideas to share to really pinpoint the right candidates; did the preliminary interviews and assisted us with great questions to ask during the 2nd interviews. We felt very confident in the hiring decisions that we made, knowing that Kim had vetted the top skills we were looking for. Thanks Kim and TPC - we could not have found the candidates we did without you!

We knew Kim and the TPC team from a previous coaching engagement.  When it came time to expand our team, we knew who to call. Kim led us through an efficient, smooth process including helping define the job need, creating a job posting, screening resumes, doing the first interview and ensuring the ideal candidate was vetted, provided an offer letter and hired. We only involved ourselves where we had to and this saved time for us which is greatly appreciated.

  

KRISTIAN ROBILLARD, FINANCIAL ADVISOR, MCBRIDE ROBILLARD FINANCIAL SERVICES INC.

I planned to hire someone myself which I now realize would have been a daunting task and I probably would have settled for less.  I didn’t really know what I was looking for until we went through the process. Kim was patient with me as the role and job description evolved.  Kim’s professional, thorough approach not only put me at ease, so that I quickly became confident in the selection process, but as I heard from the candidates that made their way to me, she also put them at ease.  I am pleased with the outcome, and after benefiting from the value of Kim’s service, I wouldn’t try to do this on my own again. Thanks again Kim!
