Supervising people can be tough, different personalities, motivations, fears, and goals all play into the dynamic that make up the people we work with. Further, it seems there are some people we just ‘click’ with while others remain a mystery. Great managers can read people. They know that employees have different skills, different concerns and different levels of motivation. These differences can lead to misunderstandings and conflict. Resolving that conflict, or better yet, preventing it from ever developing is integral to becoming an effective supervisor/manager.
This course provides managers with a simple, direct way to understand the different fears that drive much of the conflict and resistance they see. Through DiSC® managers learn their style of handling conflict and understand how that style might differ from their employees’ methods.
Leveraging DiSC®, managers learn to adjust their style to the employee’s style and needs of the situation. This course is designed to help managers recognize the employee’s style, needs and adjust to garner better results from their staff and teams.
