This cast describes how to delegate and manage projects more effectively based on the DISC profiles of your team members.

Cast Note: This cast does not address in detail each of the four general styles of behavior suggested by the DISC behavioral profile. We'll take a minute and give a quick overview, but you'll probably want to know more. For that, please refer to our series of 4 casts to get much more detail on the model and how each of the 4 "styles" behaves. And, we do provide a way on our site to order and take the DISC assessment. We price it lower than most websites do, because we're more interested in you learning your natural behavioral preference than we are in making money from it.

Two of the most frustrating "lessons" when we're starting out as managers are ones that many of us ignore. The first one is, "Hey! Not everyone is just like me!" Some of us just ignore it, rely on our power, and struggle through with less than ideal relationships with our team members. Some folks Mike and Mark know never change this behavior their entire careers. And the second one is closely related to it, but still different: "Hey! Not only is everyone not like me . . . they're not like each other, either! THEY'RE ALL DIFFERENT!"

If we want to be effective as managers, we've got to manage everyone who works for us as an individual. [Hey - maybe we need to meet with them one on one every week ;-) ] And using the DISC profile, the best behavioral profile and communication tool we know of, makes one to one managing within all of our reach. Here's how to use DISC in a simple way.
