FULL ARTICLE PUBLISHED ON DISCINSIGHTS BY PEOPLEKEYS On a typical day at the office, managing a workforce in-person is challenging. As more and more businesses are evolving toward a virtual workplace, the need for leaders to optimize their remote teams is more critical than ever. While typical office communication problems have no discretion for the type of workforce they will go on to plague, remote work teams can be most vulnerable. Not only does communication become a concern, but how we actually communicate as leaders with our remote workforce becomes a concern. According to FlexJobs, within the last 10 years, 91% of businesses have drastically been making the shift towards a more remote-based infrastructure. With more flexibility, a remote workforce presents many opportunities to businesses, including: Lower cost of operation Higher rates of retention; lower rates of turnover A happier, more productive workforce Accessibility of markets, customers, vendors and additional resources A broader pool of qualified talent A 90% higher rate of job acceptance While we experience the same types of conflict and communication issues in a brick-and-mortar environment, in the virtual team scenario you can almost always expect disruptions to occur – especially where globalization is concerned. Whether we […]

READ THE FULL ARTICLE ON DISCINSIGHTS BY PEOPLEKEYS The American Psychological Association labels psychological resilience as “the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress — such as family and relationship problems, serious health problems or workplace and financial stressors.” Having resilience does not mean a person will not experience difficulty or stressful environments. It’s how well they deal with stress and pressure when confronted with sadness, fear, anxiety and any other negative emotion which could otherwise lead to trauma. Their ability to endure such conditions, deflect negative experiences and manage their reactions is what we would call psychological endurance. Think of resilience as a shield and endurance as the way we perform during battle. Resilience and DISC Style A person’s ability to persevere and even use negative situations to their advantage reflects a high level of behavioral intelligence which is more easily understood through the adoption of DISC theory and insightful behavioral analysis. PeopleKeys’ DISC Personality Profile measures the instinctive response to pressure, and on some occasions, you may notice people have different primary and secondary styles under pressure: READY TO DIVE IN AND FIND OUT WHAT RESILIENCE COULD MEAN […]

READ MORE OF THIS ARTICLE ON DISCINSIGHTS BY PEOPLEKEYS Many coaches get accredited in DISC Behavioral Analysis as a first step or as a part of their coaching training. Once they complete their training as a Certified Behavioral Consultant or as a Certified Behavioral Life Coach, one of the most often asked questions is how do I reach my potential clients. We, at PeopleKeys, are here to help while you’re expanding your coaching network. One of the first places you should start developing your brand is on social media, and here are a few points for you to consider. Social communication is not only an “I” job. While I-type personalities tend to be natural influencers and communicators, not all personalities are accustomed to the impact social media can bring upon a community. For some DISC styles, social media can be a bit uncomfortable because it means you will be required to interact with others. It means you will have to be informative yet entertaining, concerned yet empowering, and ready to engage in small talk in order to build loyalty amongst consumers. Taking a more “us” approach to social media, as opposed to a “me” approach may be one concern, while […]

READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE ON DISCINSIGHTS BY PEOPLEKEYS You’ve heard it time and time again (and, you’re going to continue hearing it) … “We’re all different. But, we’re all predictably different.” As true as this statement is to our walking life, why would it be any different when it comes to social media? We’re on social media, because everyone else is. But, not all of us are on there to communicate. While Grandma is busy giving “love” to all of her grandchildren, others are networking. Some are trying out new recipes, and others are busy looking at stats. So, who’s doing what and why from a personality point-of-view? Let’s take a closer look. The Dominant Style “Ds” don’t always speak on social media as they use it mostly to accomplish a goal or find information quickly. When they speak, however, they’re most passionate about the subject. They’re jumping on our posts, soliciting unwanted advice or showing why they are most qualified to speak on a specific subject. “Ds” usually will share something related to business, politics, the sporting world — or maybe even religion. They’re telling us about their accomplishments or the lives of those they admire. Yet, they’re still […]

How newborns change your DISC personality

DISC Personality Types, DISC Insights, Babies, Kids, Children, Personality Traits, DISC Theory,

READ THE FULL ARTICLE ON DISCINSIGHTS BY PEOPLEKEYS Fall has finally arrived – and so have those babies we’ve had our watchful eyes on all year! There may not have been a baby boom, but it sure did feel like there was. Didn’t it? Your sister had a baby. Your neighbor had a baby. Your co-worker had a baby… even you and your wife had a baby! And diapers aren’t the only things about to change. Our personalities change through life experiences, and like our newborn family members, we tend to look at the world totally different. Things we thought were once important just seem to be trivial anymore. If you’re a “D” personality… You may find yourself wanting to control everything. You feel you are that baby’s lifeline and he depends on you, so it’s no wonder you wouldn’t trust anyone else to make decisions on his – or your – behalf. You want everything to be right and to keep your little treasure happy, safe and protected. You’ll also be impatient. Your baby may show early signs of advancement, and you’ll want to run with it. You will expect more from your baby from the beginning. You’ll want […]
