Catalyst™ is a personalized, learning platform that acts as a single access point throughout a learner’s DiSC® journey. Designed to support instructor-led facilitation or for individual exploration, Catalyst integrates DiSC into the flow of work, ensuring takeaways are readily applied.
There are currently three Everything DiSC applications available on Catalyst: Everything DiSC Workplace®, Everything DiSC® Agile EQ™, and Everything DiSC® Management.
The Catalyst™ learning experience is designed for the emerging trend toward shorter, more bite-sized learning sessions. Instead of the traditional "one-and-done" training event, Everything DiSC on Catalyst is modular, extending training over a longer period of time—which is more effective for producing long-term behavior change.
There are four parts to the Catalyst learning experience: the Everything DiSC assessment; a personalized, mobile-enabled narrative; an optional, instructor-facilitated experience (virtual or in person); and powerful follow-up tools.
Participants begin with a proprietary, computer-adaptive assessment that uncovers their DiSC styles and starts the process of raising behavioral self-awareness and understanding.
The assessment results are translated into a personalized narrative that's easily accessible on the Catalyst platform. Each participant's DiSC style is described in detail—beginning the process of social and emotional skills growth. In Catalyst, learners can also compare their DiSC style with their colleagues—along with receiving extensive tips for improving interactions and working relationships.
To further drive home the lessons of the Catalyst experience, facilitator tools support virtual or in-person training with three levels of support materials—"advanced tech" (break-out rooms, polls), "basic tech” (basic video meeting), or face-to-face in the classroom (coming later in 2020).
Facilitators can meet learners where they're most comfortable—on their own devices and in their own time. They can also assign pre- or post-session work on Catalyst and walk through features together, one-on-one or in a group.
Presentations, videos, and other dynamic teaching tools help drive home the lessons and make the benefits of the Catalyst experience a lasting part of your organizational culture.
