"To have an effective organization - a really effective high-performing organization - you need to build a strong team. I have found DISC to be one of the best tools available to develop self awareness and understanding of how to work with and within a diverse team effectively. I have worked with Fred in developing leaders for over 10 years, reaching over 800 men and women. His ability to administer and help others understand DISC is phenomenal. Through his extensive experience, Fred has developed the ability to not just explain DISC results, but to also answer the question “so what” so that you can put what you have learned to practical use. Fred is my go to resource for developing leaders’ interpersonal abilities!"

"When I first talked to Fred on the phone, his personality was dynamic. I could tell he was a passionate person. Then, when I met him in person his energy and enthusiasm for helping people made me realize that he would be a great motivator for our Market Center. Fred frequently presents “KNOW THYSELF” workshops at Keller Williams to help raise awareness of DISC characteristics. In the last 3 years we have had over 200 agents go through his programs and they are all better Realtors and people because of this. Not to mention what this has done to their relationships with their spouse, their friends, and their client's. I would highly recommend Fred to teach and train any group or company about interacting with their people and their clients. We are very thankful he has impacted our staff, agents, and our clients' lives over these last few years."

"When Mr. Fred Afshar was in New Hampshire, I asked him to provide the DISC Self-Assessment for my NEW AGENTS entering real estate. I felt this would be a great tool for them to know the skills and traits they possessed—and more importantly—recognize the skills they would need to evaluate the clients they were trying to work with for their real estate transaction and communicate effectively. Fred Afshar was FABULOUS! He was so prepared to show the agents on a live presentation with a powerful PowerPoint presentation showing them how knowing their DISC could help them with their profession but also their personal relationships! It was a HUGE success! Fred is an exemplary presenter for the DISC Self-Assessment—I highly, highly recommend his expertise for you and your group needing this kind of revelation about their personality traits!"

"I have exercised throughout my adult life and when I recently moved to Clemson, I was thankful to find Mona's yoga class so that I could continue to work on my balance, flexibility and muscle tone. As a 90-year-old, I know that the number one injury is due to falling, and I need to keep fit. Mona encourages me and everyone in the class; she is also fun and has a sense of humor. I find her dedicated to health and fitness for people of all ages."
