Size Matters. Here’s Why

As a practitioner that relies heavily on behavioural assessments, I have been asked to make a distinction between the traditional DISC tools and my preferred solution – Extended DISC??.

As I said in the subject, size matters.

DEPTH OF ANALYSIS

I remember before I transitioned to Extended DISC?? having individuals in an intervention get the same exact report. Many tools are happy to identify 16 unique styles.

Extended DISC?? identifies 160 behavioural styles ??? 40 for each of the four quadrants.

Many DISC tools identify a fraction of those styles. This gives the appearance of generic reporting and impacts negatively on the credibility of the tools among users. In large groups, there is the high probability that participants may get identical reports.

In addition to the depth of the identified styles, Extended DISC?? has over 200,000,000 unique DISC results to ensure employees receive very personalized and specific results.

THE MISSING ELEMENT

Just this week an executive shared with me that the close colleagues with whom she had shared her Extended DISC?? Leadership DNA report had not seen her Natural Style as reported. They just did not know that part of her. However, she was fully aware of the difference between her presented persona and who she is in her safe space. Not everyone is as in tune with themselves as she is. Consequently, many experience constant internal conflict bridging the gap of the conscious and unconscious domains. This can be stressful and may lead to early burn out or high turnover levels.

Traditional DISC tools fail to capture that inner self and miss a critical component of meaningful behavioural assessment deployment.

Extended DISC?? provides insights into both the conscious and unconscious domains. The reports address the individual???s Natural Style and the Perceived Need To Adjust.

Let???s have a conversation about how Extended DISC assessments on the revolutionary FinxS Platform can make a difference for you.

Did You Know?

E-COMPETENCY FRAMEWORK 2.0 (ECF2.0) is the answer to modern Workforce Planning.

In a nutshell, it lays out in clear terms the pathways to performance excellence in an organization. ECF2.0 captures, gains consensus and communicates the behaviors that are aligned to the values of the organizations and which in turn drive high performance.

Unlike staid, fixed competency-based approaches, ECF2.0 infuses technology to give the framework a dynamic role from Recruitment & Selection, through Training Needs Analysis, Learning & Development planning, Work Plan development, Performance Management, Career & Succession Planning and Reward structures.

The WHY

ECF2.0 cascades values through the organization in such a way that it is communicated at all levels in terms of not only what is done but critically, why it is done and how it is to be done.
ECF2.0 defines the knowledge, skills, personality, attitude, values and norms that are required at each level for each role.

The WHO

ECF2.0 informs the recruitment & selection of staff to achieve right person, in right role under right style of leadership. It matches existing competences against what is desired (Gap Analysis) and pivots Learning & Development to fill gaps.
ECF2.0 lays out transparent career pathways and supports succession planning. Above all, it provides a pervasive reminder of ???who we are??? and what behaviours and actions are aligned to that common understanding.

The HOW

ECF2.0 is a boon to Performance Management and Appraisal. The descriptors/identifiers that are linked to each level in respect of each competence spell out in clear, easy to follow language how things are to be done.
ECF2.0 outlines observable behaviours which facilitates daily performance management and productivity enhancement. Contentious performance appraisals are rare.

Why Employees Love ECF 2.0

  1. Gives clarity about what your unit does and how it does it.
  2. Shows the relationship of your role with other positions.
  3. Outlines the key skills, abilities, knowledge, aptitude and attitude required for your role.
  4. Supports identification and analysis of skill gaps.
  5. Provides structure for process review and strategic planning.
  6. Places your role in the context of the overall structure.
  7. Adds objectivity to personal and group performance appraisal.
  8. Supports Career Development & Succession Planning by defining role requirements at all levels.
  9. Lays out learning objectives for roles with clarity.
  10. Supports SWOT Analysis and identification of gaps.

Let’s have a conversation about ECF 2.0. Happy to answer all your questions and to discuss how ECF 2.0 can provide the framework for building resilience and future-readiness in your organization.

Team Dynamics

It sounds corny, but it is true ??? Teamwork makes the dream work. An examination of team dynamics can tell the story about the long term success of an organization. Our vast array of customizable individual and team diagnostics will present your story using a compelling mix of graphics and text.

TeamArrowMap_TeamBuilding_LandingPageImage

We guarantee that you will gain insights about your organization, each team and individual members that are not available to you from any other source!

It is from those insights that a successful strategy to increase employee engagement and retention is finally crafted.

Are your teams fully aligned to the requirements of the current and future environment?

Our Team Maps graphically depict how the team will cope in a changing environment and undergird the critical importance of resilience and reliability as pillars on which your operations must be grounded.

Front-line Presence

How are you being represented by your customer service/client care representatives?

People see your organization through the experiences they have with those individuals. Have you taken extra care in your selection, training and management of those team members?

We have some specifically-crafted assessments and reports for client care that are guaranteed to move the relationship with your clients and stakeholders to a higher level.

As with other roles, the Ideal Job Template is created with input from individuals who fully understand the requirements of the role. They decide on the ratings of the competences that are drawn from the vast FinxS?? Behavioural Competency Library.

Employee Engagement

Consecutive Deloitte studies indicate that 2 out of every 3 employees are not engaged on the job. Two-thirds of your employees are merely going through the motions. What does that mean for your overall effectiveness and goal attainment?

Monitoring the workplace climate and level of engagement with easy to implement Satisfaction Survey instruments is a good starting point. You can also add the use of 360 assessments to identify where your leadership challenges lie and what to do about them.

The flat-fee licence also includes the new Remote Worker Assessment.

Training/Coaching

One-size-fits-all training and coaching is a regular occurrence. However, it is not the most effective solution. Our behavioural assessments provide the opportunity for laser-like, targeted training and coaching that addresses the specific needs of each individual in ways that suited to their behavioural style. Improved competence drives enhanced performance!

We routinely include behavioural assessments in all our training programmes. With the flat-fee licence, you gain access to the revolutionary FinxS?? Platform which facilitates the creation of multiple, situation-specific reports on any individual in the FinxS?? database. This means that once an individual has completed the assessment you can look at them in a variety of contexts. The FinxS?? Playground allows you to conduct this review on screen with the ability to view a group and compare their respective level of comfort with displaying any competence from the library.

How does the budget-friendly, flat-fee licence work?

We have a conversation about your organization and we will send you an agreement that outlines the package that is designed to meet your unique needs.

We will also be happy to have a no-cost, no-commitment online consultation with you to better explore how we can add value to your organization and answer any questions that you might have. E-mail: info@successwithpeople.org

Limited Time Opportunity

We are currently offering an HR/Talent Management support package to licence-holders that incorporates in-demand, online courseware and downloadable e-books >>> At No Additional Cost!

In real terms, that offer can dramatically increase the reach and impact of your training budget!

My Gift to You

These publications have been very well received. You can get your copy at no cost by replying to this e-mail and changing the subject to the publication that you desire.
