If you haven’t worked with us yet hopefully you may have already realised our passion about helping businesses work better as a whole. The founder possesses hands of experience as a senior manager, entrepreneur and a qualified trainer and assessor.  Positioning us very well to assist others and are eager to do so.  Creating workplaces that thrive through understanding, is a key aspect of the founder’s ethos. Who whole-heartedly believes in the Everything DISC® model and eager to share more about it with you.

The following information relates directly to team working. It’s a part of the overall Everything DISC® Workplace Profile process that has been designed specifically for those at the top to get tangible results with the teams you work with.

Team Profiling

The Everything DISC® team report offers vital information on how you can create a greater rapport with each other.

By taking the core ethos of Everything DISC®, this 20-page profile gives you everything you need to know about your own style, but more importantly, goes one step further and looks at how individuals can work effectively with those around them.

 I know more than I say, I think more than I speak, and notice more than you realise

Everything DISC®  produces a personalized profile for each individual. Personality profiling in the workplace hits that mark and has been designed to be used by anyone, regardless of the role they play in your organisation.

Problems can never be solved with the same way of thinking that created them (Albert Einstein)

By taking the core ethos of Work Place Teams Profile, the 20-page report issues you everything you need to know about your own style, but more importantly, goes one step further and looks at how you can work effectively with those around you.

If you’ve never made a mistake then you’ve never tried anything new (Albert Einstein)

Human beings can be assumption based and whilst this occurs naturally embarking on an activity such as this can really be an eye opening experience. Permits increased understanding, in turn leading us to enriched decision making.

You might be thinking that this just seems to be suited to identifying soft skills, rather than those technical skillsets most companies request when hiring, but that’s not necessarily the case.

Interestingly, LinkedIn’s Learning Blog found that the most in demand soft skills are:

Creativity - Persuasion - Collaboration - Adaptability - Emotional intelligence.

It’s noticeable that Emotional Intelligence seemingly supersedes 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 curiosity and the desire to learn really is a given when it comes to desirable soft skills.

Interestingly:

One of the recommendations in the The Commission on the Future of Management and Leadership report places emphasis around recruiting people based on their personal attitudes and capabilities, not just their technical skills

Learning in context

My Style is also where individuals can lean more on how their DiSC style impacts workplace preferences and where a handy podcast will be situated containing an in-depth account of styles and preferences of the persons style.
