Happy New Years!

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.”
-Edith Lovejoy Pierce

Happy New Years from Resources Unlimited! We look forward to sharing in 2013 with you. 

Dec 27, 2012

As we wrap up 2012 and look forward to 2013, you may be wondering how to keep DiSC alive and the training that you have conducted in the past from falling by the wayside.  Resources Unlimited has generated a few ideas on how you can keep people excited about DiSC and use it in their everyday work environment. 
  • Group Culture Report (DISC Classic and Everything DiSC)
  • Comparison Reports (Everything DiSC only)
  • Annual learning events for those who want to freshen up on DiSC
  • Nominate a DiSC Champion in the workplace or highlight success stories
  • Accountability Partners
  • Interaction Guides (available in Workplace, Sales, and Management)
  • Style Guides for employees to have an ongoing reminder of their style
  • Email Campaigns created by different groups within the organization and how they are using it
  • DiSC Bulletin Boards with tips and tricks on how to deal with different styles
  • Game Show style learning such as Jeopardy to reinforce the styles
  • Steadily Reinforce in meetings

Take some time to think about what works in your workplace to keep things actively moving forward!

Adaptive Testing for Everything DiSC

Starting this month, Everything DiSC is getting a lot more sophisticated. The new scoring algorithm will use adaptive testing, a more advanced technology that adapts each question to the respondent's previous answers. Adaptive testing is used in a variety of standardized tests, such as the GRE for graduate school admissions, and now it has come to DiSC.

What does this mean? For Everything DiSC users, the new methodology will give participants the most precise DiSC results possible, along with better feedback and reporting.

Please note that DiSC Classic 2.0 is not being updated with adaptive testing. If you're still using DiSC Classic, this is a great reason to upgrade to Everything DiSC.

For additional information about adaptive testing, feel free to download the DiSC Adaptive Testing research report or give us a call at 515.278.1292.
