TYSONS, Va. – The National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) and Reflection Software won a gold award from the Brandon Hall Group for excellence in the category of Best Use of Video for Learning.

The award-winning training video module, “Finding Meaning Behind the Words: How Video Scenarios Brought the DISC Model to Life for Dealerships,” is part of NADA’s Professional Series course in Leadership, which centered on teaching how to effectively utilize the DISC Behavioral Model when interacting with colleagues and customers.

Reflection Software, which offers custom-built training and career development products, created the video module to supplement NADA’s instructor-led training classes.

“We are developing industry-leading curriculum for our members, and it’s satisfying when it is recognized beyond the auto industry by an organization as established as the Brandon Hall Group,” said Mike Stanton, NADA executive vice president and chief operating officer.

NADA and Reflection Software worked together to develop the video module, which included real-life video scenarios with interactive decision points to enhance the learning experience through observation and action. The video scenarios created for the module were designed to be authentic to the dealership setting.
