Soft skills for the workplace
It could easily be assumed that this just seems to be suited to valuing soft skills, as appose to the technical or hard skillsets. Yet without soft skills you haven't got a healthy productive team. Interestingly, a LinkedIn’s Learning Blog found that the most in demand soft skills are:
- Emotional intelligence
Noticeably Emotional Intelligence seems to have superseded time management, which has fallen off this top 5 list completely recently. Of course this list is not exhaustive, and we feel that things like resilience, curiosity and the desire to learn really is a given when it comes to desirable soft skills.

Courageous conversations can turn into something more straightforward
for Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientiousness.
It was first created by Dr. William Marston, a physiological psychologist in his book ‘Emotions of Normal People' in 1928. Over the years, his findings were built upon and gradually evolved until today, when they now form a four-stage process called ‘DiSC®’. Obviously this is then defined into more defined categories with some overlapping..
As a facilitator of DiSC, the message is clear each time I implement it within a team. You can see how individuals come to realise that they can approach others differently, in a way that minimises friction. Huge thanks to Sian at My Training Shop for the support I have received too.
I found this assessment helpful in the way that my chart clearly showed that I sit 1/2 way between focusing on detail and focusing on the big picture. This confirmation has equipped me to open up my mind moreso when identifying solutions
One of the things I have learned is that it is perfectly fine for me to work quietly behind the scenes. In the past, I sometimes felt different from others.
The Facilitation kit is designed to revolutionize professional, in-DiSC training sessions. They provide all the necessary tools to effectively shape training and cater to the diverse needs of different groups.- Great ongoing support from My Training Shop too!
Running courses that bring together sympathetic and supportive individuals with competitive and results-oriented individuals can be highly beneficial. This allows both groups to gain a better understanding of each other and creates a win-win situation.
Disc reports really help with recruiting for my clients and Sian has helped enormously with all aspects of providing the guidance around them.
Recently, I was assigned the responsibility of facilitating comprehensive training for our employees to enable them to adapt and communicate more effectively with each other. My approach was grounded in utilising a workplace report for every participant. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and demonstrates noticeable progress, as each participant is enthusiastic and actively striving to enhance their communication skills across various communication styles.
I must express my gratitude to My Training Shop for their outstanding service, which made the process of generating and distributing these reports a seamless experience. Thank you."
Now I have learnt about my style (and me), I feel I can contribute my views with more conviction. Whereas previously I often compared my communications to others and sometimes held back.
I loved how this report gave me an insight into how other people are likely seeing me. As an over-thinker, this is something that has always bothered me. I now actually feel more confident in who I am as a person - thank you!
Acquiring Confirmation is the one term that jumped straight into my mind following taking this assessment and receiving my report (very comprehensive). Upon reading about most of my traits (and recognising myself) I found it so reassuring to learn not only about me but how other people can be different and why. This is a sentence that stood out and one that I will be acting upon: 'When you express your passion, others become more committed'
Far from feeling labelled, seeing my disc report instantly gave me a sense of relief and empowerment at the same time.
Its really helping me understand my emotions and how they relate to my behaviour's of which am already explaining to others.
This has been a timely reminder not to create obstacles, and to start my life plan today! Simple to use but it packs a punch!
I found the learning module very user friendly. I loved the inspirational quotes, enjoyed the video and found the whole module to be very beneficial. It has been an effective learning tool and has definitely helped boost my resilience. Thank you 😊
Having already been an organisational avid disc advocate, Following consultation with Sian, it was agreed we would transfer to Catalyst. A sound decision as we now have our own in-house DISC platform which has helped enrich our disc culture even more so. On hand, easy to use and on the fly, We particularly like the 'motivator and stressors' element along with the management bolt-on. Great support from Sian too!
Sian's team and coaching sessions were insightful as she ensured all participants were empowered by continuous words of encouragement.
Sian's capabilities are varied and what she doesn't know she takes great care to find out.
