With tight deadlines and demanding priorities, many organizations don’t have the luxury of wasted time due to conflicts often caused by differing personalities.
Most miscommunications can be solved if you understand how to best approach different work styles and realize how others perceive your own behaviors.
A great tool for doing this is The Everything DiSC® suite of assessment and facilitation products.
What is the Everything DiSC®?
Everything DiSC is a behavioral style assessment that brings out the best in your employees and managers by helping them:
- Understand their behaviors and how others perceive them.
- Learn how and when to adapt their behavior for more effective interpersonal interactions.
- Manage conflict productively.
Have you ever found yourself working with someone who you just couldn’t figure out? Despite your best efforts, you just weren’t clicking. Your stress level was high and productivity was suffering.
Or maybe you’ve been tasked with assembling a high-functioning team for a large project on a very tight deadline.
Just like architect Brad Pollitt who was challenged with connecting a team of 150 independent contractors to build a $400 million hospital in under four years.
An incredible project like this would require nothing less than a team with a commitment to collaboration, effective communication, and trust.
Pollitt knew he would need backup and he sought out Wiley’s Everything DiSC® tool to avoid mistakes and resolve any issues right away.
Speaking of his experience with Everything DiSC, Pollitt said it ¨allowed us to assess who we are individually, who we are collectively, and helped us assume the characteristics and behaviors of a high-performing team in a very, very short period. Everything DiSC® has been essential in bringing the group in this pressure-cooker situation.”
Dealing with people is an art, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use some science to enhance your interactions.
Everything DiSC® is a research-validated model that helps you understand yourself and others while saving you time, energy, and money. Better employee communication equals efficiency for both the worker and the company – not to mention reduced struggle and stress.
The DiSC® model offers a simple, memorable way of understanding four basic personality styles: Dominance (D), Influence (i), Steadiness (S), and Conscientiousness (C).
All DiSC® styles and priorities are equally valuable, and every person is a blend of them. To see a sample Everything DiSC® Workplace Profile look here. This sample will show you how detailed the results are.
What Will Everything DiSC® Tell You?
- How to work more effectively with people who aren’t like you (or who are very similar to you).
- The personality styles of you and your team members, and how they “mesh” as a unit.
- A common language that will ensure teams understand each other and work better together.
- How to reduce conflict and misunderstandings by inciting more conversation and team building.
Everything DiSC offers a variety of assessments that will help you and your team build a more effective working relationship.
