A new article on our learning hub explores various strategies and soft skills that can help individuals and managers improve work performance.
We look at ways to limit distractions, methods for prioritizing tasks, why multitasking is a myth, and how soft skills like listening and giving feedback can help you get more done. For managers, we offer four steps to improving employee performance.
If you want to improve your own or your employee’s performance this year, you’ll need to be specific about what that means. Set tangible goals and follow through.
Taking the time to talk about our assumptions and what our team’s norms should be can save time and accelerate results down the line.

🙋 Featured FAQ 🙋
Q: Can I have one style at work and another at home?
A: Most people have a similar style at home and work. Efforts to validate the measurement of these separate parts of one’s self in an instrument have not been successful from a research perspective. That’s why you don’t see an adaptive style in any Everything DiSC profile.
Nevertheless, this is a common question. We may act more from one style than another because of need. If you’re caring for an elderly parent in your home, you are likely calling upon the S style. If you’re leading a new project at work, you may employ D-style behaviors. But this doesn’t make you an S style at home and a D style at work.
Activate different parts of your learners’ brains by asking them to draw or be creative in another way. For example, ask them to draw what it feels like to stretch to the style opposite theirs, then have people share their drawings.
