Leaders don’t work in isolation. They’re charged with partnering with and motivating their team to achieve concrete business goals. The most effective leaders understand that each team member brings their own communication style, strengths, weaknesses, motivations, fears, and goals to the team.
The Leveraging Style Differences in Teams Using DISC workshop employs the DISC profile to help team members reflect on their natural style and learn about the styles of their colleagues. Team members learn to appreciate their own and others’ strengths and contributions to the team. They also get an objective view of where team members and the team as a whole are challenged by differences in communication styles, and what they can do to make it better.
Team members learn:
- Their communication style and how others perceive it
- The strengths they bring to the team and how to capitalize on them
- The roots of interpersonal conflict and frustration
- The team’s natural focus and priorities, and how to make sure that other areas of focus and priority don’t get lost
- How to engage, inspire, and motivate team members based on their individual goals, values, and interests
- How to create a safe environment to discuss differences and challenges
- How to accept and value all team members and roles
