We all know having an engaged and motivated team is essential for the success of any organisation. However, it’s often one of those things that seems too aspirational or unrealistic to actually achieve. It’s hard enough doing everything you are meant to do, let alone have the time and the energy to motivate and engage every individual in the organisation.
I am an accredited trainer in DISC behavioural profiling and use this incredibly effective tool to do just this – build productive, harmonious and motivated teams, quickly and effectively.
DISC behavioural profiling helps you to understand yourself and your staff better.
I love using DISC profiling.
It’s accurate (90-95%), it’s quick (10 minute online questionnaire) and it’s very effective.
In fact, it’s the leading profiling tool being used by millions of people and businesses to improve communication, team work and productivity, and it will make the difference to your organisation.
You know that all your staff are different. DISC recognises this.
Everyone is different but we are predictably different. Our behaviour is driven by a unique blend of four styles that combine to make each and every one of us.
Which style(s) do you recognise in yourself and others you work with?
- More dominant, determined, fast paced individual, ticking off the tasks as you go through your day?
- More people orientated, influencing, leading and getting people on board with ideas and enjoying it in the process?
- More methodical in your approach, you like to be in a supportive team environment, actually you are more like the glue in that team supporting everyone else?
- More concerned with the details of a situation, you like to know where you are and what is expected of you, you like to have data and information before making a decision?
Four different styles, but four styles that make up every member of your staff. Four styles that on a daily basis are bringing different qualities, different strengths, different potential challenges and four styles that are interacting every minute of every day in your organisation.
No wonder conflict arises, no wonder your workplace at times can be a challenging place to be, no wonder some managers spend a lot of time every day dealing with miscommunication and misunderstandings.
Are you wishing you didn’t have to spend so much time dealing with such issues?
Using DISC profiling in your organisation will enable you to recognise these differences, acknowledge them and importantly engage them. It will make your job as a manager or leader easier as you will know how you can get the best out of yourself as well as the people you work with.
It will free up more time for you to get on with what you want to do.
Not only can you use DISC to motivate and engage your existing staff but also to recruit effectively and ensure you have the right person for the right job. Making you a more effective leader and manager of your new employee, right from day one – ideal!
Profiling enables you to tailor feedback for maximum impact and tailor rewards for maximum motivation. You will be more aware of how to involve, listen to and develop each member of the team. Profiling highlights individuals’ strengths and potential challenge areas, allowing them to be recognised, acknowledged and developed, ensuring your staff are continuing to grow both professionally and personally. All these are key factors when engaging staff.
I passionately believe DISC is the powerful communication tool that will quickly and effectively make your role managing and working with people easier, more effective and ultimately more enjoyable.
