How does the process work with behavioural profiles?
All participants for Team or Management Sessions complete a quick online survey (15mins) a few weeks/days before the meeting/conference/webinar. Each participant receives a soft (PDF) copy for review 2 days before the event and then a hard copy at the event.
What are the typical group sizes for your Team Meeting sessions?
Client off site/in-house team meetings have typically had group sizes of 20-60 participants. For conference sizes, we customize the delivery for 70-1000 participants. During times of the covid pandemic there are some facilities that have set up to allow for safe socially distanced meetings so check with your meeting facility or event planner for safety protocols. For diversity of behavioural styles in a group to provide experiential learning and economic viability, we suggest a minimum of 16 participants. We can also customize online sessions for team webinar formats.
Does each participant receive a behavioral profile?
Yes. Each participant receives a personalized behavioral communication profile for their team meeting or conference. Each participant's profile is generated by an online survey they complete (about 12mins) approximately 10 days in advance of their session.
What geographic areas do you work in?

(in both French and English) From Toronto, Collingwood, Niagara On The Lake, Banff Springs and Montreal, to Tampa, LA, Belgium or Jamaica it is common for our facilitators to serve clients wherever they need us.
Do you facilitate online team sessions?
Yes. We have customized online team sessions on preferred client platforms for a webinar experience that can adapt a team's needs. The process is similar in that participants receive their behavioural profile a few days in advance of the online session with instructions about reviewing it. For the online session one of our certified facilitators will unpack more details and learning applications as a a team.
Do you offer train the trainer for HR professionals/teams?
Absolutely! Often for organizations of various sizes rolling out talent management initiatives, we partner with HR teams to equip them with learning to be coaches/consultants in supporting their internal clients.We customize practical sessions for HR teams involved in talent selection, onboarding and talent management support in using the XLDisc profile systems. The sessions are generally for 3 or more when online or when we have public sessions companies may send 1-5 HR professionals for a live session or online with HR pros from other organizations.
Do you customize for sales teams?
Yes. Why do some sales professionals succeed more than others? One factor is the ability to read and adapt to the style of the buyer/customer. Research shows that customers/clients prefer to purchase from people who exhibit a similar behavioural style to their own. Excel Group's Behavioural Selling shows sales professionals how to understand and adapt to customer/client personalities for superior client relationships, sales volume and profits.
