Getting to know you

Our consultant from Singapore, Mr. Wen-Wei Chiang, used various games and activities to help participants build awareness of their own and others’ emotions in team dynamics.

Building straw towers

Learning about pitfalls to communication

Wen-Wei also used the DISC Behavioural Profile to increase students’ self-awareness. With this as a framework, they will be able to better understand others’ differences and build more effective communication and working strategies.
