Often what you think you want is not what you want at all!
I'm lucky enough to have a really special team of leadership and management trainers who get to work with some pretty amazing organisations, businesses and NGOs.
Most clients are sure they know what they need from us when we first meet. They come to us to fix a particular problem with their team, business or organisation.
They often want a quick fix. They just see a problem that needs fixing. But often the problem they think needs fixing is just a symptom of a very different issue altogether.
DISC is a fab tool for teams that can help them work together better and avoid unnecessary drama.
Here are 7 reasons why you & your team should learn about DISC profiling:
1. Say goodbye to awkward misunderstandings: By understanding each other's communication styles, you can avoid a lot of miscommunication. No more wondering if your co-worker meant to sound rude or if they're just having a bad day! 😀
2. Better team work: With DISC profiling, you can identify each other's strengths and weaknesses and use that knowledge to work together more effectively.
3. Be a better leader: When you understand your team members' personalities, you can lead them more effectively. Think of yourself as a wizard who can cast spells to motivate your team and make better decisions. 😀 ...
Interestingly, a LOT of managers and leaders really struggle to praise their team.
This can often depend on their DISC profile (if you are not sure what this is and manage a team - we REALLY need to talk 😊).
D profiles will struggle to praise unless you go way above and beyond their expectations.
I profiles will be over the top and possibly even praise you for arriving to work every day. 😉
S profiles will take giving praise seriously and will probably be pretty good at it.
C profiles probably won’t think to unless your work is perfectly perfect. It’s your job after all.
How good are you at praising?
