How to Navigate The Great Resignation – A New eBook from Everything DiSC

Here’s the deal – things have changed in the workplace. WE have changed, as a workforce. And that can be a good thing.

Not only are employees reviewing how their organization has handled the pandemic from a people-perspective, but they’re also deciding if their organization’s future of work policies match their needs. In fact, a recent study by Microsoft indicated that over 40% of the global workforce would be willing to leave their job this year.

Maybe now you are thinking, “Okay, well what exactly should I do to create a more people-centered culture, so my employees want to stay?” It would be the right question!

Everything DiSC: The Truth Speaker

DiSC As a Framework for Better Relationships

There are many examples of ways Everything DiSC should and shouldn’t be used in the workplace (or in general). DiSC gives us a framework for understanding behavior, but the real value of DiSC is not just in knowing a person’s DiSC style—it goes much deeper than that. It’s about relationships.

The real magic happens when DiSC becomes part of an organizational culture where people have open dialogue about their priorities and preferences and use DiSC as a springboard for discussion. This dialogue is an opportunity to learn more about a person’s style, and then figure out ways to adapt to their needs. Because DiSC is used as a catalyst for conversation—versus a tool to categorize people—it becomes more about growing and building effective working relationships. Beyond this, learners are empowered to take what they learn from DiSC and #Stretch outside their comfort zone, manage their team more effectively, or actively improve their emotional intelligence, depending on which solution is being applied. And that’s when we see real, lasting growth for organizations and individuals alike.

The Value of DiSC

Vital Virtual Teamwork Skills

Understanding the virtual teamwork skills gap is the first step to overcoming it. Creating a culture of effective teamwork requires a set of skills and a common language for ALL employees, and these are 100% learnable— no matter where employees are located.

It starts with trust—specifically vulnerability-based trust. By acknowledging our own human failures and foibles while appreciating the strengths of our colleagues, we unlock the other behaviors that lead to successful teams. #VulnerabilityIsAStrength #TrustIsGlue

The Do’s and Don’t’s of DiSC

It’s true that Everything DiSC has the power to be a culture catalyst by starting each learner on the path from personalized insights to real behavior change. But achieving this powerful impact requires the appropriate use of DiSC in the workplace.

While DiSC is a tool that supports a variety of social and emotional contexts in the workplace, it’s possible to misuse the tool. Here are some of the biggest mistakes:
– Arguably the most-common misuse of DiSC is “pigeonholing” a person based on their DiSC style. Pigeonholing happens when a person’s abilities are limited or dismissed based on their DiSC style. This results in unfair stereotypes or generalizations. For example, “All C-styles get too bogged down in the details to see the big picture.”
– Using DiSC as an excuse for poor behavior, and a reason not to adapt! Unfortunately, this action often winds up stunting development and encouraging stereotypes, which is the antithesis of what Everything DiSC stands for.

The reality is that the behavior of people with the D, i, S, or C style does not all look the same across the board. There is a lot of variation, even within one DiSC style. That’s why it’s so important to use DiSC as a dialog tool to better understand how your DiSC style influences (or doesn’t influence) the way you work. #DontEncourageStereotypes

Now, let’s talk about DiSC DO’S. Do:

  • Apply a framework for understanding behavioral tendencies.
  • Use as a conversation catalyst to get to know, adapt to, and value others.
  • Instill a common language in an organization.

Authorized Partners for DiSC solutions, like us, are here to help you leverage the tool correctly, so you and your organization can get the most out of your experience!

The importance of understanding DiSC do's and don't's

A Framework for Team Challenges

Whenever your team faces challenges—say, not everyone has committed to an idea—what’s your framework for working through it? What questions do you ask?

Employees are empowered to apply their skills on a day-to-day basis when tied to a simple, memorable, and actionable framework and through a common language. When employees at all levels are equipped with the essential skills of effective teamwork, they can move seamlessly from team to team—knowing what it takes to build an effective one—and immediately begin contributing to collective results. And when challenges inevitably arise, they know what to do.

Questions like “Why is that so?” and “Did we not fully listen to and debate each other’s ideas?” allow the team to quickly get back on track. Ultimately, the absence of any of The Five Behaviors® can cripple teams and organizations.

Knowing what to do when facing team challenges

Self Awareness and Team Dynamics

Each of us approaches teamwork in a unique way, and those differences in perspective and personality are part of what helps teams thrive. They allow us to debate and discuss concepts and ideas and to uncover one another’s blind spots.

So when each employee develops their self-awareness around their own personalities and behaviors, they become empowered to “team” in a way that feels meaningful—and therefore memorable—to them.

How are you creating the space to discover in what ways you show up and motivate others to do the same, so that your whole team can rise together and achieve true cohesion?

PXT Select for Leadership

PXT Select not only helps with finding and onboarding the right talent, but also with leadership, equipping leaders to achieve higher engagement levels in their teams.

Leaders generate excitement and take time to celebrate hard work and achievements. They make space for affirmation, even with everyday tasks. Leaders understand that the well-being of their organizations depends on the emotional well-being of their employees. Consistent doses of encouragement, joy, and celebration all contribute to emotional health and organizational success—especially when stress levels run high. That’s the fuel people need to keep going, stay focused, and maintain motivation!

How does PXT help with this?

Once leaders have the right individuals in the right places, they can use information from the PXT Select Teams Report to build and maintain teams of people they know will work well together. By providing information on how each individual functions in the context of a team environment, the Teams Report allows managers to help each person realize their strengths and areas for improvement while working with other team members.

Similar to the Teams Report, the PXT Select Coaching Report helps managers assist their employees in identifying strengths and areas for growth while working alone, which is especially important for remote workers.
