Managers must focus on improved leadership to avoid employees quitting because employee turnover can be costly and disruptive to an organization.

Results Driven Managers who want results meet with their employees to talk about long-term goals. They do this at least once a year. They also have quarterly meetings to discuss progress toward the goals. I think it would be better if we had this meeting at a different location. If that's not possible, we need to make sure that there are no interruptions for the 4 hours of the meeting. During the meeting, managers and their team members should talk about what is happening with the business and what could be improved. They should also set new business goals, with their team’s help. You do...

The first step for annual goal setting is to reflect on your current situation and assess your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats.

Now we're going to start sharing how to prioritize like Eisenhower. Now, this isn't going to be much of a history lesson on Eisenhower, but I think you need to know a little about the man.

Management styles vary between individuals. And though most tend to gravitate towards a particular style type, a manager could choose to use different management styles depending on what fits best for a particular situation. Your management style will depend on various factors, including your personality, the organization you work for, the person you work for, your team, and your goals. So know that rarely is there a one-size-fits-all style; you likely put on multiple style hats throughout the course of a day or week.

She and I were talking about DISC, her DISC profile, and she asked, have you ever done a podcast on DISC? I wanna go back and listen to it. And I had to stop for a minute. In all these years, no, I haven't, I haven't done a show talking about DISC explaining DISC, the value of DISC, how DISC works, what it tells you, what it doesn't tell you.

And so today, this is gonna be a little longer podcast because I can get a little long-winded on this. But I'm gonna go into a fair level of detail on what. D I S C, the DISC profile is, and with that, let's get started. So DISC starts with people are different. However, they're predictably different. And with DISC, it helps you understand, based on the dominance, influence, stability, and compliance on those four scales, what your style is, where you fall, and what blend your DISC style is.

With that and with the knowledge you're going to get with today's show, you're also gonna be able to start recognizing the styles of others. And the real value of DISC is that once you know yourself and start recognizing these behaviors in others, you'll then understand how you might need to adapt a little bit to interact with others in the most beneficial way. I've provided this session today, either individually or in groups, probably north of a thousand times.  So I'm gonna say every time, the participants in the discussion walk out with a fairly new outlook on their coworkers, their boss, and themselves. And when we can start talking in DISC language within our teams, our employees, our bosses, and our peers. We can start thinking about and communicating using the disc, approach the DISC, and understand it changes the game.

I've seen this change, the dynamics, the inner workings of teams of all sizes, of all types. Non-profit, aerospace, industrial sales,  you name it, b2b, B to C, no matter the industry, the size, the type of company, this works with everybody. I'm a huge fan of it. And I'll get out there right now that I provide disc profiles and DISC assessments, and I'll put it in the show notes. If you have not gotten your own DISC profile, I'll put in the link.

DISC Assessments are the same for everyone. Other assessment methods, like screening calls and unstructured interviews, can be unfair. Interviewers ask different questions to different candidates, and there’s no consensus on how to rate candidates’ answers. DISC, by contrast, is standardized and administered in the same way to all candidates. If they’re crafted according to strictly job-related criteria, they give everyone the same opportunity to succeed. DISC will save you time on interviews.
