The best-selling Everything DiSC Workplace application and the all-new Everything DiSC Agile EQ application.

 

  1. How do the applications work together within the Everything DiSC on Catalyst learning experience? 

 

From Workplace, you can extend the learning journey to include Agile EQ™, which can be unlocked in EPIC for just 10 credits. 

 

Workplace and Agile EQ are just the beginning. Our future vision is to migrate and create more applications of DiSC to Catalyst. Whether it’s learning to transform conflict or manage with impact, you will be able to continue adding value to your learners over time using Everything DiSC on Catalyst.

 

 

  1. How are the Everything DiSC® on Catalyst™ applications different than the traditional Everything DiSC® applications? 

Everything DiSC Workplace® on Catalyst™ and Everything DiSC® Agile EQ™ on Catalyst™ refactor the traditional Workplace and Agile EQ™ experiences to better support real-world application of the learning concepts. The result is an experience that transforms the traditional once-and-done training event into an ongoing learning process. Three notable differences are described below: 

 

Modular Design: The traditional Workplace and Agile EQ content have been refactored into eight learning modules. Unlike the traditional experiences, each module is self-contained and can be done alone or in conjunction with others. The design enables group training sessions that can be easily customized to meet a wider range of time or group-size constraints.  

 

The Workplace learning modules include the following:

  • Fundamentals Module 1 (60 minutes classroom/65 minutes virtual): Your DiSC® Style 
  •  Fundamentals Module 2 (30 minutes classroom/20 minutes virtual): Your Colleagues 
  •  Workplace Module 1 (75 minutes classroom/70 minutes virtual): What Drives You 
  •  Workplace Module 2 (75 minutes classroom/60 minutes virtual): You and Other Styles 
  •  Workplace Module 3 (60 minutes classroom/55 minutes virtual): Build Better Relationships 

 

The Agile EQ experience has been refactored into three learning modules.

  • Agile EQ Module 1 (45 minutes classroom/40 minutes virtual): Your EQ Strengths 
  • Agile EQ™ Module 2 (95 minutes classroom/100 minutes virtual): Beyond Your Comfort Zone 
  • Agile EQ Module 3 (60 minutes classroom/60 minutes virtual): Develop Your EQ

 

Please note that all learning modules can be delivered separately or together in a single event. The intent of the modular design is to equip Partners and Facilitators with more options to address emerging learning trends around shorter-format sessions. 

 

Immediately Relevant and Applicable to Each Learner’s Day-to-Day Work Life: The Catalyst™ platform acts as a personalized, on-demand single access point for learners to call on throughout their DiSC journey. Here, learners take their DiSC assessment, gain access to their personalized results and their Workplace and/or Agile EQ™ application content, and can compare their DiSC® style to their colleagues and get tips for more effective interactions in real time. This contextualized experience allows learners to apply what they learn with their colleagues and more easily come back to DiSC to help achieve lasting behavior change.

 

Virtual or In-Person Instructor-Led Facilitation: To address the remote work implications brought on by COVID-19, the Everything DiSC Workplace® on Catalyst™ and Everything DiSC® Agile EQ™ on Catalyst™ facilitation has been designed to support virtual OR in-person training and include the following: 

  • Virtual facilitation (for use with videoconferencing technology)

People will appear in the style filter for only the first letter or the first quadrant of their style. This is true for both the Your Colleagues page and the You and Other Styles page. For example, a learner with an Si style, will appear in the S-style filter but will not appear in the i style filter.

 

  1. Can a learner have additional priorities with Everything DiSC Workplace® on Catalyst™? Where does a learner find their additional priorities? 

Yes. A learner’s Workplace priorities, including additional priorities when applicable, are found within the Workplace feature on the Catalyst platform, and first introduced in the module, What Drives You. Here, the learner will find out their shading, their motivators and stressors, and three key strategies that might help improve effectiveness at work.

 

A learner’s Workplace priorities can also be viewed on any of the individual Your Colleagues pages within the Your Colleagues feature. Any learner can compare their Workplace priorities with those learners in the same organization using this feature.

 

  1. Can Catalyst be linked to a learning management system (LMS)?

Not at this time.

 

  1. Can I use Catalyst as a virtual platform to host the facilitated sessions (instead of a platform like Zoom or Microsoft Teams)?

No. Catalyst is a platform where learners access their personalized DiSC content. Facilitators can use a webinar or video conferencing tool of their choice to run a virtual session. 

 

  1. Can facilitators add content to Catalyst™? 

No. The content on the Catalyst platform is created and managed by Wiley and based on a learner’s DiSC® results and the DiSC results of the people within their organization.

  1. Will learners be able to access the Everything DiSC Workplace® on Catalyst™ or Everything DiSC® Agile EQ™ on Catalyst™ facilitation PowerPoint ® slides and handouts on Catalyst? 

No. Learners cannot access the facilitation materials (videos, PowerPoint decks, and handouts) from the Catalyst platform. These will be provided by the facilitator.

The Your DiSC® Profile Report (PDF)

 

  1. Is there still a PDF profile with the Everything DiSC® on Catalyst™ experience?

Yes. The PDF profile is called Your DiSC Profile and is available for download from either EPIC or the Catalyst platform. It’s a dynamic report, and the content will change based on which DiSC applications the learner has access to. A learner will have Workplace or Workplace and Agile EQ™ content depending on what the EPIC Administrator has provided. See sample report for details.

 

  1. What is the role of the Your DiSC® Profile report in the learning experience now that the Catalyst™ platform is available? 

The report can be printed from EPIC and used for in-person classroom training in the same way it’s always been used. In addition, learners can also download their reports directly from the Catalyst platform.

 

  1. How is the Your DiSC Profile report different from the content on the Catalyst platform?

Most of the content in the report is the same as the content found in corresponding sections of the Catalyst platform, though there are some minor differences in presentation and organization. The report also contains introductory pages for each section that are not found on the platform and are intended to support modular facilitation. Conversely, some content on the platform, such as the Your Colleagues section, is not included anywhere in the report. 

 

  1. How is the Your DiSC Profile report different from the traditional Everything DiSC Workplace® Profile and the Everything DiSC® Agile EQ™ Profile?

Many of the pages in the Your DiSC Profile report will closely resemble the content found in the Everything DiSC Workplace and Everything DiSC Agile EQ Profiles, and the personalized information remains largely the same. Notable changes include the following:

  • Introductory pages have been added that allow each module to be facilitated independently, if desired. The DiSC map at the bottom of each introductory page can be used as part of the “catch-up” content to reacquaint participants with the model. In addition, the You Will Learn section on this page identifies the highlights of each module.
  • The Your DiSC Overview, narrative, and Overview of DiSC pages from the traditional Workplace profile have been grouped in the Fundamentals section at the start of the report. 
  • The Three Key Strategies for Effectiveness from the Workplace profile now follow the Motivators & Stressors page. 
  • To support modular facilitation, a table of contents page has been added at the beginning of the report, and the page numbering calls out the section of the report. For example, the four pages of the Fundamentals section mentioned above is numbered FN 1-FN 4, and the first Workplace module is numbered WP 1-WP 4, etc. 
  • Language changes such as new module names and some minor rewording of definitions and concepts.
  • A new page, Learning to Stretch, has been added to the last Agile EQ™ module to help participants determine which mindset they’d like to work on first.

Privacy and Security

Any learner at any time can opt out of sharing their DiSC style information by visiting the Privacy tab within their account settings on the Catalyst platform. If a learner chooses not to share, their colleagues will not see their DiSC style information, nor will they see their colleagues’ information. Learners who choose this option can change their settings any time. 

 

  1. How was the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) considered while building the Catalyst platform? 

Catalyst was fully designed and developed within a post-GDPR world, and it is one of the first platforms across all of Wiley to incorporate privacy and security in every feature through a fully integrated Privacy-by-Design program. This has enabled feature level consideration within the context of GDPR and with other privacy regulations such as the California Consumer Privacy Act. As global privacy laws evolve, we will continue to evaluate privacy needs for future updates.

  1. Does the Your Colleagues feature comply with global privacy laws?

Yes. The Catalyst platform incorporates privacy and security in every feature, including the Your Colleagues feature. Each feature complies with GDPR, and with other privacy regulations like California Consumer Privacy Act. Wiley will continue to evaluate privacy needs for every future update. Specific actions taken to ensure the Your Colleagues feature compliance include:

  • At the Catalyst account creation stage, all learners are asked to accept the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use prior to engaging with the platform. This information covers the interactions on the Your Colleagues feature.
  • Catalyst, and the usage of the Your Colleagues feature, have been included in Wiley’s Privacy Shield certification (available to view here) and has obtained the TRUSTe seal by an independent third party to verify compliance with privacy regulations.
  • In compliance with privacy rules, learners can update their own data that is shared in the Your Colleagues feature in their Account information. While this does not allow learners to turn off the sharing of their DiSC style information, it does offer the autonomy to ensure that their name, photograph, and department are accurate and complete.
  • Any learner at any time can opt out of sharing their DiSC style information by visiting the Privacy tab within their account settings on the Catalyst platform. If a learner chooses not to share, their colleagues will not see their DiSC style information, nor will they see their colleagues’ information. Learners who choose this option can change their settings any time. 
  • Any learner at any time can ask to be removed from Catalyst™ by contacting their EPIC administrator. Administrators may delete a learner’s access code(s), which will completely delete the learner’s record in EPIC (including their Your DiSC® Profile report) and their access to the Catalyst platform (as long as there are no other active Catalyst access codes for that learner). After this, the learner will no longer be able to log into the Catalyst platform and their information will not be visible to others in their organization.
  • In the case of a learner who has access to Catalyst but changes organizations, administrators are able to edit a learner’s organization within EPIC. 

 

  1. When a learner leaves an organization, can their DiSC® information be removed from Catalyst, then reinstalled with a new employer? 

Yes, learner accounts can be deleted. For a full learner account deletion, administrators may delete a learner’s access code(s), which will completely delete the learner’s record in EPIC (including their Your DiSC Profile report) and their access to the Catalyst platform (as long as there are no other active Catalyst access codes for that learner). After this, the learner will no longer be able to log into the Catalyst platform.
