Team Building Workshop 

With Extended DISC® profile

 

Effective teams read and understand each other.

Sometimes an individual’s ability to succeed in a professional role is about more than just their technical skill. Very often their behavioural style can have a significant effect. How do they prefer to think, to relate to others, to make decisions? These preferences are all the more important when individuals with different styles need to work together.

Behavioural analysis can help people understand themselves and each other. Where necessary, they can adapt their own style to get the best from their working relationships – be more productive and satisfied and waste less time and energy in misunderstandings.

How this workshop helps.

Using the psychometric behavioural profiling tool Extended DISC®, this team building workshop motivates teams to work towards high performance and cohesion.

Extended DISC provides a framework for understanding human behaviour. By better understanding ourselves and others in the team we can improve how we relate with each other and work better together.  Extended DISC profiling is an easy-to-use framework to understand complex issues, quickly solve problems and improve team communication and co-operation.

Our Team Building Workshop with Extended DISC equips the team with the skills to become more successful:

  • Discover and understand their own personal behavioural style
  • Develop confident self-awareness
  • Recognise and appreciate the different style of others
  • Develop strategies to adjust their style to improve interactions with others.

Participants become aware that their success is determined in a very large part by how well we interact with others.  They learn how to effectively relate, communicate, influence and motivate others.  With a better understanding of behavioural styles, working relationships are enhanced, communication skills are improved and conflict is reduced.

How does it work?
Includes: Extended DISC assessment for each individual + half day team building workshop.

Firstly, individuals complete the online Extended DISC self-assessment which takes about 10 minutes to complete.  Each participant receives a personalised report identifying their style, natural strengths, priorities, motivators, stressors, and workplace preferences.  A Team Report aggregates individual results for the team leader, revealing team attributes and dynamics.

Then we bring the team together for our hands-on and interactive Team Building Workshop.  We explain the Extended DISC framework and get to know the different styles.  Individuals develop a better understanding of themselves and their own preferences. Then we shift focus to understanding our co-workers at a deeper level.

An experienced facilitator will encourage and guide the team with facilitated discussion and fun activities to help the team understand, appreciate, and work more effectively with people who have different styles.

Who is it for?

The Team Building Workshop with Extended DISC is ideal for teams and cross functional workgroups who want to improve working relationships and team performance.  This workshop is recommended for teams wanting to:

  • Build trust with established teams experiencing stress and conflict
  • Bring together and build rapport for new or developing teams
  • Establish new leadership – understand personalities and team dynamics

What is Extended DISC? 

Extended DISC is a leading behavioural assessment tool based on the theories of well-renowned Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung and American psychologist William Mouton Marston. It is a non-judgmental tool used to identify and explore behavioural differences among individuals. The model provides a common language that people can use to better understand themselves and adapt their behaviours with others in the workplace.

The Extended DISC model divides people into four main behavioural styles. Individuals are identified as either People-oriented or Task-oriented. They are further distinguished as either Reserved or Active. The resulting behavioural styles are called:

  • D-style (Dominance)
  • I-style (Influence)
  • S-style (Steadiness)
  • C-style (Correctness).

Extended DISC recognises 160 different behavioural styles and reports in full on each style. It is scientifically validated, producing precise and statistically accurate reports, with a high level of validity and reliability.  It has been used by organisations all across the world with over one million assessments completed annually.
