Every journey starts with a single step

About Us


We are a team of committed professionals who understand that Business and Personal Mastery is only achieved through the conscious commitment by an individual and/or business to a process of continuous improvement.

Studies have proven that there is a measurable financial advantage for both individuals and organisations when they are committed to learning, are able to respond faster to change and are open to new opportunities.

The additional value of creating an organisational culture where Personal Mastery becomes intergal with Business Mastery is clearly demonstrated by both an empowered, happy and effective team and a more successful, productive and profitable enterprise. 


"One can have no greater mastery than mastery of oneself"   Leonardo da Vinci

PeopleSmart World.com is the main site for Carol Dysart and business partner, Sandra, and where is found "All things related to "DISC". This includes the most popular of all personal profiles because this self-and-other instruments helps create compassion, authenticity, and extraordinaryily harmonious relationships. 

By staying completely in the present and optimistic about the future, we see a world that works for everyone. It is now possible to know and value ourselves first, get the right people on the right bus and in the right seat so that everyone around them can stay "in the flow" and relaxed. Focusing on what the other person needs, wants, and fears FIRST, then both can get all these important agendas and objectives met.
