Carol's formal education includes a Bachelor Science degree in Education and Music from UCLA (1960) and a Masters of Science in Counselling from San Diego State University (1977). She lives in San Diego, California.
After a satisfying career as a high school and college teacher in San Diego for 15 years , her pivot into Personality Style Consulting came with the awareness that most people do not know themselves well in terms of their strengths, needs, emotions, and motivators, much less understanding how to "read" another person's primary Personality Style well enough to build relationships that work for both.
Carol has trained and taught people since 1979 how to administer and interpret the DISC Personal Behavioral Style reports, and with her business partner, Sandra Davis, who she met in New Zealand on what was planned as a short visit, but whose family hosted Carol as she extended her "visit" to one over 4 1/2 years which lasted from 2000 to 2004 because, together, they attracted so many clients and Carol ended up teaching for Unitec in the Masters Program for Entrepreneurism, and they led many staff development seminars and created many books and trainings to meet the demand. During that period, they also co-founded the PeopleSmart Enterprises, LLC which added divisions focused on different markets and purposes - PeopleSmartWorld.com for training and where their master shopping cart to purchase their assessment tools, books, and programs is. The PeopleSmartHr.com is the center for corporate talent development and hiring tools for PEO's (Professional Employer Organizations and HR applications, DISCoveringMe.org.nz is where Sandra presents her curriculum for Home Schooling, Family and Youth training that she developed and created special Educators Guides and books for each student to use. She also helped design and develop the PeopleSmartAcademy, which hosts courses in Conflict Resolution, Leadership and DISC Basic Education for the managers and users of DISC profiles. Carol also features her personal favorites and more on her background here at CarolDysart.com.
The team provides customized DISC Assessments in different reporting versions which include a seminar version of (DISC-M), as well as separate reports based on DISC for Coaching, Leadership, Sales, Customer Service and Career Path Planning. Each version starts with the same assessment input form, so multiple versions can be generated without having to retake the questionnaire.
They offer Private Label versions of all the assessments and reports so any companies or organizations can get trained and have their own customized assessments to offer, featuring Report Covers with their logo and other customizing of the reports - turning each one into a "brochure" for their own services as well.
Carol and Sandra's overriding Mission and Vision is for a "World that Works for Everyone" because people can recognize their own and each others gifts and strengths, making it easier to build balanced teams. Her influence as a "DISC Master" has taken her around the globe, as many of her licensees are her international clients too.
PERSONAL HISTORY: Carol's mastery of the art and science of personality styles started with her experience in teaching first and finding out how few students or their parents actually had a language to acknowledge or talk about a person's "gifts" and personal strengths. Students were seeking careers based on the salary potential instead of what really interested them, and because of this, employees had low job satisfaction and it was hard for owners to hire the right person for the right jobs. She became a leader in the human potential movement leading courses for business and government employees that helped develop people's full Human Potential.
Following graduating with a Masters of Science in Counseling degree in 1977, she fell in love with the DISC model for observable behavioral styles in 1979 and realized that Personality Science was a specialized niche she wanted to pursue because it "checked all the boxes" that included Developing the Human Potential, Understand Self and Others, and DISCovering how to "people-read" so you could make faster choices about who to spend time with and what jobs would provide satisfaction.
Less than a year after being fully Certified as a DISC Consultant, and upon registering for both the Money & You and Excellerated Business Schools for Entrepreneurs programs to learn how to form a business plan, upon arriving, she found THEY were also using the DISC profiles in their curriculum teaching business owners how to surround themselves with balanced teams and how to form powerful relationships.
She became the school's DISC Master upon graduating from their Business School and since then has seen thousands of their graduates bring it into their own business toolkit as well. Thus her business has steadily grown through this leverage of Carol's efforts to help people "get" their own strengths and apply that knowledge to having a much happier life. Her business clients now use her services to help develop their Team Alignment and Collaboration relationships.

Given Sandra's background in a Franchising and Licensing Consulting firm, she saw how to develop PeopleSmart Licensing contracts for those consultants who wanted the benefit of using the PeopleSmartIP to validate their own work with people. These are popular ways to bring family applications for Youth, and Sandra's DISCoveringMe and You curriculum via YouTube and Facebook Live videos are just getting out to the world using the popular social media live presentation mode.

Companies can now select and hire the right employees for their best roles and learn how to lead, motivate and manage each employee so that everyone wins at work.
This interest in PEO's led Carol to meeting best-selling business book author, Steve Farber, and Jenna Lynch, who also uses DISC in their outreach to clients. So it didn't take long for their Extreme Leadership Institute process that operationalizes LOVE into the culture of a business was the perfect new place for Carol to contribute her deep DISC understanding. She is also certified in Steve's popular LEAP (Love, Energy, Audacity, and Proof) model and loves her new role in the promotions and teaching of Steve's popular his books like "Radical Leap" and "Love is Just Damned Good Business".
