Adapting Teams: Powered by Everything DiSC Agile EQ

Would you say that your organization is ready to adapt to the future, whatever it brings?

We live in challenging times, and now more than ever, professionals need to keep their eyes glued to the horizon. Today’s workforce may be perfectly suited to today’s challenges. But what about next year’s?

The Everything DiSC® Agile EQ™ program is one answer. It’s an assessment and group training program grounded in the proven Everything DiSC® assessment, which measures two central aspects of personality: pace and skepticism. On top of that, Agile EQ™ measures each employee’s comfort with eight EQ mindsets.

What is really unique about this program is that it has an optimistic foundation, clearly showing each employee the EQ strengths they’re starting from. From there, the emphasis is on their development. Boosting EQ and becoming more agile is like building a muscle, and the profile outlines the exercises that will lead to growth for each individual. #GameChanger #EQWorkouts

Embracing and Democratizing Regular Recognition

Don’t underestimate the power of recognition! Do we get up and go to work each day just for a paycheck? Recent research suggests we don’t.

If you’re looking for an easy way to motivate employees and boost engagement, start with recognition. But don’t make recognition one directional. Make recognizing achievements everyone’s responsibility. The entire responsibility cannot fall on leaders and managers alone. Everyone can take it upon themselves to recognize their co-workers for a job well done. Praise from executives lets employees know how their work contributes to the overall goals of the organization. But since we work closely with our everyday coworkers, praise from them means a lot too.

Besides democratizing recognition, what are some other ways to do recognition right? Reach out to us for your copy of PXT Select’s eBook “Leading With Confidence: Top Ten Tips Managers Need to Drive Success”.

Lower Employee Stress By Listening

Wiley surveyed 4,500 working professionals from a variety of industries in July 2021 to find out what organizations can do to help employees maintain a healthy balance and lower their stress levels.

58% of people surveyed currently experience the benefit of having regular listening sessions with leaders. When leaders reach out and listen, people report feeling less stressed. Team members want to feel heard and acknowledged for their unique needs and contributions and will, in turn, be more committed to their work. We can all agree it makes a big difference when we feel the leaders in our organization care about what happens to us and invest time into making our work life better. Although listening sessions can be time consuming, they send a clear signal to your employees that you value them.

Leaders, are you prioritizing time to listen?

A Leadership Tip from PXT Select: Vision

There’s no greater leadership responsibility than being able to craft and cast a compelling vision for your organization. And though crafting a vision isn’t easy, when it comes to leadership, only one “vision question” really counts—are you actively pursuing your vision?

Leadership mentor John Maxwell said that a leader “knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way,” and that “people buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.”

Do you have a vision? Do your colleagues and employees know what it is, and do they believe in it? Do they believe in your ability to get them there?

Create a vision for the future that your employees can’t wait to get to. You’ll be setting an example that people can’t resist following. This is what being a great leader looks like.

Productive Conflict in the Remote Workplace

Have you found it harder to engage in productive conflict since working remotely?

Avoiding tension, conflict, and difficult conversations can stunt a team’s growth, especially when the groundwork of trust—where mistakes can be made, forgiveness is granted, and our vulnerabilities aren’t used against us—has eroded or, worse, never existed from the start.

Whether it’s holding someone accountable or sharing that you don’t feel heard, when we lack that interpersonal foundation of trust to stand on, we find it more difficult to do the hard, but necessary, work of being an effective team member.

The Policies Every Organization Should Consider to Minimize Employee Stress

For its latest eBook, How to Navigate the Great Resignation, Wiley asked questions about what policies organizations have in place and examined the impact that those policies have on reported stress levels. They discovered some compelling insights about which organizational policies have the biggest impact on lowering employee stress levels.

One of these policies is Additional PTO & Mental Health Days.
32% of people surveyed currently experience this benefit.
The pandemic highlighted mental health in the workforce in a way we’ve never seen before. According to Wiley’s research, providing additional PTO and mental health days had the strongest impact on lowering stress levels for employees at the height of the pandemic and continues to play an important role in lowering stress moving forward, so it’s surprising that only 32% of respondents said their company modified this policy.

This means organizations that actively prioritize, discuss, and cater to its employees’ mental health moving forward will be in a better position to retain and attract top talent.

Reflect on if your organization implemented or updated this policy in the last year. Want more info on the research? Request your free copy of the eBook from us:

The Critical Nature of Effective Teamwork Skills

Teams are comprised of individuals, each of whom needs the skills to make effective teamwork a success. Sounds obvious, but that’s why it’s so critical for everyone to have a clear picture of what individuals and teams are experiencing—and why every leader must foster a culture of effective teamwork in their organization.

It’s astonishing to think that some teams are able to be successful despite poor teamwork. Imagine what is possible when teams achieve true cohesion!
