Are you frustrated in your attempts to get along with others in your work or personal life? Does it seem like you’re working with “difficult” people? Or, perhaps they are just different. Our success in life is determined primarily by how effectively we communicate and interact with others. The DISC assessment helps you improve your ability to communicate, influence, and motivate others. And, these leadership skills are crucial in creating successful, lasting relationships with customers, prospects, co-workers, managers, and subordinates, not to mention friends and family. The DISC assessment helps you understand others so you can adjust your behaviors according their behavioral styles.
Navigate More Easily with DISC Map!
The DISC assessment is similar to a map. If you don’t know where you are and how you’re going to get where you want to go, it is very difficult to reach your destination, right? Well, the DISC provides you with a framework to help you make the necessary adjustments at the individual, team, & organizational levels to achieve your objectives successfully.
Use It or Lose It!
Many people take their DISC assessment or other behavioral assessments and read the reports, but never truly use the information. Or, worse yet, they use their new knowledge as an excuse. I’m sure you’ve heard someone say, “I’m a high D (or I, S or C). That’s why I’m so ….” Fill in the blank with whatever undesired trait that holds the person back–impatient? disorganized? scattered? passive? rigid? Or, you may have heard someone say, “I’m a high I (or D, S, or C) so I can’t do that!” To address this, we help you understand all four DISC styles then we help you:
- Learn and accept your unique strengths and areas of development
- Recognize & identify the behavioral styles/preferences of others
- Modify your behaviors so you can be more successful working/living with others
Determine the Best Plan
Processing the DISC assessment with us doesn’t just give you information about your unique behavioral traits and tendencies. It also helps you determine the best action plan for reaching your goals. Following these steps, we create an Action Plan, using what you’ve learned from the DISC assessment:
- Identify your goals (for example: increase company’s sales by 10%)
- Break down goals into specific activities (for example, require salespeople to make 30 calls per day)
- Convert behaviors into a DISC map (for example: take on more assertive, results-oriented D-style behaviors to hold employees on your team accountable)
Adjust for Personal & Professional Success
As your coach, I make sure you have the knowledge to start making deliberate adjustments to your Behavioral Style so you can succeed personally and professionally. For example, a “high-D” or I-style may want to work on active listening and talking less. Or, if you want to close more sales and you’re a “high” S-style, you may need to be more “D” like (more assertive, out-going, and driven to move sales forward. Or, if you have a dominant “C” style, your goal may be to be more people-oriented and better communicate with your team members. The DISC will also show you how to adjust your style to communicate with each of your team members based on their style.
Once we have determined the type of changes you need to make, we help you come up with specific strategies and discuss how we can begin to make the behavioral adjustments.
