Some exercise ideas for DiSC trainers

Trainers and consultants always find it challenging to create DiSC exercises and tasks that have an immediate practical value and that would also encourage users to apply and remember those learned skills and techniques.

Why teamwork often fails?

Teamwork, and how to influence it, has historically been one of the favorite topics of people interested in leadership and social psychology. Stable teams, who have learned working together for a long time, can be very powerful tools in the business or political world. Unfortunately, however, the rapid changes of today’s world, the intense competition, and unpredictable customer expectations, don’t any longer allow or support the formation of such teams. On the contrary, organizations are increasingly forced to put together short-term and randomly selected units that operate together only as long as the task is finished. It can also be that one employee belongs into several different teams, all with a different duration, strategy and working atmosphere.

Case study: Team Works at school!

The Mission

At a Secondary School in Singapore, there was a need to form ad-hoc, non-academic project teams for various events and initiatives. The school’s leadership wanted to know how to form more effective and efficient teams so as to maximize manpower resources.

They contacted Authorized Partner OTi Consulting (OTi), to address this issue.

New product coming out soon!

The biggest news of this year’s annual MindLab48 conference on March 26-28 is the imminent launch of a new Wiley product. We will have a chance to be among the first to qualify as authorized partners for The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team - an all new, proprietary offering for the EPIC platform based on the best-selling Wiley book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni.
