Recruiting In Style – DiSC

Recruitment can be a tough process to go through, especially as a wrong decision can result in a lengthy process to exit that person from your business.

Fluid Business Coaching would never advocate basing a recruitment decision based purely on someone’s communication profile. However, tools such as DiSC can be a brilliant to help you understand a potential employee's motivations, goals and fears when going through the recruitment process. This type of insight is also important and useful when introducing a new employee to your company.

The table on the right outlines the basics of each DiSC profile type. Hear more about each of the different profiles (D, I, S and C) on the Fluid Business Podcast below.

So what is the point of disc-recruit-styleunderstanding why people are motivated to join you and your organisation? A strong team can make or break a company and developing an ‘All Star Team’ rather than a ‘Team of All Stars’ we can unlock infinite value.

If you're interested in developing an ‘All Star Team,' find out more about our services or speak to one of the team about how we can help you with DiSC profiling. If you'd like to talk to one of our coaches about how we can help your business, call 01245 423377 or schedule a call back.

What is Effective Communication?

Everybody has their own unique style of communication that is influenced by their current situation, the relationships that are involved in and the expectations they have of themselves and others. We all have different goals, fears and motivations of the world. If this is the case how can we communicate effectively with everyone we come into contact with?

Before we can understand if we are communicating effectively we first need to understand what communication truly is. Let’s go right back to basics. The dictionary defines communication the successful conveying or sharing of ideas and feelings. The word itself has been derived from the Latin word “communis”, meaning to share, so to communicate is to make common. So our first major key to communicating effectively is to create a common, neutral language that is safe and accessible for everyone to use. That sounds all very nice and fluffy but in practice it is hard work, requires a lot of effort but brings immense rewards to an organisation.

Feedback is essential to effective communication. Actually, it is only when we communicating effectively that we read the feedback the other person is giving us and make changes accordingly. Many people miss the feedback signs, carrying on regardless and causing a mis-communication or conflict. People have different ways of communicating and giving feedback but there are some basic principles that we all instinctively follow.

DiSC is a personality profiling tools to help us understand these principles. With such tools we can interpret and understand the feedback people give us and adapt our communication accordingly, thus creating a safe, common, neutral language.
