Communicate Better with your Team and your Boss!
In a recent Inscape Publishing study of management perceptions 47% of respondents said, “My manager enhances my job satisfaction and work quality.” Unfortunately, 53% said “My manager either diminishes or does not contribute to my job satisfaction or my work quality.”
Leading others effectively means moving from a “one size fits all” approach to providing direction, motivation, and development in a way that aligns with each individual.
The most successful managers and leaders notice the needs of their employees and adapt their style accordingly. That may seem daunting but these are important skills that can be developed with the Everything DiSC® Management Profile and Workshop.
Participants in our workshop first learn about their own management preferences. Next, we help participants figure out how to understand how each DiSC style likes to work, what motivates them, and how to identify areas where the people they manage have strong potential and areas where they may face obstacles.
We also help participants figure out how to work with their own manager by providing insights for understanding their manager’s priorities and preferences. The report also provides information on dealing with conflict with their manager.
Everything DiSC Management is the most in-depth and easily customizable DiSC-based management-training solution available.
Our management-specific, personalized content from the individual profile creates an in-depth learning experience.

The introductory One Day Workshop offered for ‘Everything DiSC Management’ was well received by our leadership Team members. It provided an understanding for leadership and managing people, and served as a foundation for providing our Team with shared language around leadership, and awareness of each of our strengths and leadership styles. It provides the understanding of how to effectively communicate with each other, and to read our respective employees’ behaviour types. The Workshop provides effective techniques for motivating and developing the staff who report to us. I have received only positive feedback from all participants and look forward to further building on this foundation to build a highly effective team.
