Utilizing the Right Tools is More Important than Ever.
Being an effective leader and pulling out the talents of my team are skills I pride myself on and work very hard to achieve. Getting to know each member and understanding what motivates them and what they need from their leadership team was where I spent a great deal of my time and energy. The landscape has changed quite a bit in the past two years making it difficult to do this on a one to one basis, luckily we have tools that can help fill the gaps.
Communication is the cornerstone of building a good culture and having a connected team. Knowing the motivations behind how and why people do things can help every team be more effective. DISC is a valuable tool that enables a leader to gain insights into the “how” and “why” people do things.
What is DISC?
DISC is a universal behavioral model that goes over four separate factors: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance.
Put simply: the DISC assessment measures how a person does what they do. It creates a language around observable behavior.
To fully understand DISC, it’s important to understand how the four individual components work together to create the whole. While a typical person may have one or two dominant characteristics, it’s the combination of the four components of DISC that defines a person’s behavior. The four components of DISC create a “behavioral makeup” unique to every individual.
I am a firm believer that this is the single most important thing you can do as a leader, an entrepreneur, a business owner, a teacher, anyone that is responsible for leading a team. Knowing your team and how they communicate makes the entire organization stronger. If you nurture the people, they will nurture your business. If you grow your team and invest in them, they will grow your business and invest in your business. They are your number one priority.
