Solving The People Problem Key Ideas
Do you work with anyone who thinks or acts differently than you, or even frustrates you? Of course! But how well you interact with those coworkers has an outsized impact on your career success.
In Solving the People Problem, Brett M. Cooper and Evans Kerrigan, co-founders of Integris Performance Advisors, teach you how to speak the same language using DISC-EQ -- a unique combination of personality assessment and emotional intelligence. If you and your teams understand each person’s DISC personality type, and improve your collective EQ, you will improve workplace relationships, results, and happiness.
There’s a brand new way to understand and teach empathy: DISC-EQ.
For years, two distinct frameworks (“DISC,” the language of personality style, and “EQ,” or emotional intelligence) have been used independently by leaders, teams, and organizations around the world with impressive results. Now, for the first time, Brett and Evans have combined these ideas to provide leaders with even more powerful advice and guidance.
We have a conflict problem. Over 60% of workers blame workplace conflict on clashes in personality style.
Negative conflict carries a tangible business cost: U.S. employees spend 2.8 hours per week dealing with conflict, amounting to approximately $359 billion in paid hours, or the equivalent of 385 million working days. Having low DISC-EQ can trigger disruptive conflict in the workplace, leading to fractured relationships, unhappy workers, and business inefficiency. You need a new framework to solve these issues.
Having a greater awareness of your DISC-EQ style can fine tune your decision making skills and make you a better leader.
Examine your recent decisions. Did you move too quickly? Too slowly? Were you too concerned with the feelings of others? Not concerned enough? If any of these issues have surfaced for you, you can use DISC-EQ to develop strategies to check those impulses the next time a big decision comes your way.
