New DiSC Profile Coming Soon! Everything DiSC 363 for Leaders

This week our staff attended an Inscape Publishing webinar about Everything DiSC® 363™ for Leaders, the newest DiSC profile in the Everything DiSC Application Library.

We've been working with 360 degree feedback for over 15 years and understand some of the frustrations leaders may have with 360. Open-ended comments can be unfocused, hurtful, unhelpful, and potentially derail the learning process. The data can leave leaders thinking, "Now what?" if it doesn't provide clear explanation or coaching.

Everything DiSC 363 for Leaders offers a new solution that combines the simplicity and power of DiSC with the best components of 360 degree feedback. The report also provides 3 strategies to improve leadership effectiveness that are written to the leader's own DiSC style.

The Everything DiSC 363 report is easy to understand with clear visuals and a conversational narrative style to help interpret and explain the data.

The exclusive CommentSmart feature helps raters give constructive feedback. Raters choose from highly-tested, behavior focused comments that add richness, context, and depth to the feedback. Early users and beta testers commented that the 22+ pages "include all of the core info from a 360 without the snide comments." Everything DiSC 363 offers a "good mix of data and friendly feedback."

If you've been reluctant to implement a 360 feedback program for your leaders, we encourage you to try Everything DiSC 363 for Leaders - arriving later this month!

DiSC Training Exercise: Creating a Group Map

DiSCHere's another great DiSC training exercise you can incorporate into your next session.

If you use the DiSC Classic Paper Profile or the Online DiSC Classic 2.0 Profile, create a poster using handout 4-2 from the Everything DiSC Classic Facilitation System.

If you use the Everything DiSC Application Library Profiles, create the Poster Template from the Support Materials Folder on your USB drive.

Have each DiSC participant write their name on a sticky dot and place it where they're located on the DiSC map. This will provide a great visual of what the group’s DiSC styles are.

By looking at the DiSC Group Map, everyone can see that:
  1. We all fall on different places of the DiSC map. Throughout your DiSC session you can teach participants how to adapt their natural style to meet the needs of others.
  2. Even though some participants might be the same D, i, S or C style, we fall in different areas of the map. This really demonstrates that not all D’s are alike, not all i’s are alike, not all S’s are alike, and not all C’s are alike. There is diversity, even within the styles.
  3. Learning more about DiSC will help participants learn how to work with people who have a variety of styles and preferences.
