Why a change is as good as a rest (and why your team will thank you for it!)

We’re all facing our own unique challenges right now – home-schooling, keeping ourselves motivated, caring responsibilities, pressured workloads, balancing work/life, maintaining our ability to bounce back…

Connecting with others – especially work colleagues – is key to building a support network to help us through these tough times. But finding opportunities to connect whilst so many of us are working from home can be challenging.

Everything DiSC is a great way of building better connections, compassion and understanding of your colleagues – and of yourself. And it’s a great way to bring a team together to discuss something other than workload!

Everything DiSC is a powerful yet easy to understand model which describes four basic personality styles:

D for Dominance

i for Influence

S for Steadfastness and

C for Conscientiousness

Ever wondered why connecting with some people is easier for you than connecting with others?

Maybe you’ve noticed you relate better to colleagues who focus on creating lively environments or relationships.

Or maybe you’re more comfortable with those who focus on getting accurate and timely results.

Or perhaps you relate best to people who are more supportive than competitive.

Understanding yourself – and understanding how your priorities, drivers and motivators may differ from those of your colleagues – can help you improve your workplace relationships and keep them supportive, constructive and helpful during these trying times.

And let’s face it, getting your teeth into something other than your everyday workload – something different and exciting – can be just what is needed at the moment. A change is as good as a rest!

Everything DiSC helps people develop the social and emotional know-how for more effective interactions at work. And if an organisation’s true potential lies with its people, introducing DiSC to your team is a great step in helping people bring out the best in themselves and each other.

And to bolster a sense of team spirit in the process!
