Everything DiSC Management Explained
It all starts with learning about the manager’s style. It makes sense that a managers style would affect how they manage. The DiSC profile is a simple tool that offers information to help the participant understand themselves and others better; this knowledge of oneself and others can prove tremendously useful to the individual and managers. The profile begins with an assessment that asks the user to describe how frequently each adjective describes them. Based on the responses, a visual representation of the information in the form of a “map” is created. The map provides a point highlighting where you (the user) fit on the map.
We then move beyond the map to provide a written description of your style, preferences and priorities. This is the Everything DiSC profile.
The Everything DiSC Management profile, highlights the manager’s management style – their priorities, preferences and motivations. For example, one manager’s style might be one prone to action and be very action oriented; while another might rely more and utilize encouragement and collaboration, OR perhaps their style focuses more statistics, objectivity and reliability – perhaps more fact oriented. These are very different, not better or worse, but very different styles.
As mentioned previously, the manager’s style can say a great deal about how the manager approaches their role as a manager. In the previous example, a manager with a style engaging action, encouragement and collaboration would suggest this manager tends to be friendly, upbeat, sociable.
The Management Profile provides additional insights into what the manager enjoys about managing and conversely what drains your energy as a manager. Additionally, the report considers how the various styles manage time, goes about making and solving problems, delegating, directing. Also, when delegating and directing, the report highlights how the manager might accomplish these responsibilities with other styles that may work on their team, or perhaps that are colleagues, their managers or even their clients.
