For managers looking for easy team building activities, a DiSC® Personality Training Workshop isn’t usually the first thing that comes to mind.
That’s because personality training has a reputation for being slightly complex and hard to understand, not mention lengthy and involved. It’s easy to understand why it has this reputation, too. After all, the world’s most commonly used personality training module is the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).
The MBTI Isn’t on Our List of Easy Team Building Activities
The MBTI is now almost a century old. What’s more, there are some groups who find it to be very complex. The steep learning curve means many participants get lost along the way. Plus, in a workshop setting, there’s not much time to cover extremely complex models such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.
Experience has taught us that easy team building activities are best because there’s less frustration among participants, which leads to a more conducive atmosphere for building teamwork across the board.
DiSC® Personality Training Speaks in a Universal Language
DiSC® personality training is definitely counted among one of our favorite, most effective, and fun workshops. Past groups who’ve completed the DiSC® workshop say it’s very effective for getting people to work together more effectively.
The language used to describe the personality types and how they affect communication and collaboration is refreshingly simple. In fact, even international groups, where everyone comes from different countries and cultures, have found much common ground during DiSC® workshops.
DiSC® is Easy to Interpret
Since the language of DiSC® is easy for everyone to understand, it’s also easy to interpret the results of the DiSC® assessment. Practitioners know they can get their group up to speed quickly on how DiSC® works and what it means.
That means they can then quickly and easily move on to what’s really important: how DiSC® personality types can initiate positive change in the workplace.
It’s Easy to Keep the Conversation Going
Again, it’s the universal language that makes DiSC® so easily adaptable for all groups, and anyone who wants easy team building activities. That helps, because another goal of great team building is to keep an open dialogue going about what makes great communication and how collaboration takes place.
Applying the lessons learned from taking the DiSC® assessment will come easily for groups, simply because the conversations they’ll have during the course of a DiSC® workshop will help everything sink in.
And of course the more they discuss and ponder their DiSC® training, the more readily they’ll be able to transfer their lessons to the workplace.
