Case Studies

Finance Team: 15 participants

Purpose: Improving Self-Awareness, Communications and Team Effectiveness

Value:  Since the workshop, they have put their learnings into practice by way of: –

  1. Yearly Think Tank, which takes place at the beginning of each calendar year. It’s a ½ day project review and used knowledge of DISC to complement their framework by determining how they could support the business / better understand what they could do for the business.  Conversations referenced DISC by identifying stakeholder’s styles to gain buy-in / influence / not biting off more than they could chew / identifying motivators etc.)
  2. Staff reviews – Using DISC during chats with staff (source of input) to better understand their wants, needs, how to work better as a team.
  3. Production Staff – Using DISC to better understand which production staff should work on certain shows. Alignment of internal and external stakeholders.

Mia Mia Child & Family Study Centre:  20 participants

Purpose: Self-Awareness, Who’s in the Team, Improving Communication and Adapting behaviours

Value:  Client feedback post session

  1. “There was a buzz after the retreat and we’ve had staff commenting on how relevant they felt the DISC session was to their daily work life. They commented on the session being engaging and enjoyable. They also understood why it was a valuable exercise – to enable them to work better with others and also gain a better perspective of why and how people respond in certain situations. Most have readily offered their profiles (just the generic pages) so others within the immediate team get to read and understand each other better.”
  2. Since the workshop, key team leaders have requested Leadership Style pages to gain further insight to how their natural behavioural style reflects / impacts a range of leadership tasks.

Purpose: Inclusion of DISC Assessments in hiring process to improve hiring decisions.

Why do you use our service?

We use Cross Check’s DISC profiling service as part of our recruitment process. For us, it is about creating clear expectations with a manager, aligning the job description to a “DISC style” and then using that knowledge to hire the right person for the right role. This has helped us remove emotion and “urgency” from our recruitment process, in turn allowing us to hire based on skill and will not desperation or over inflated need.

 

How has it benefited your hiring process?

It has created a clear playing field for all our managers to play in, using a vocabulary we all understand and removing emotion from the hiring process, so we are getting it right, the first time.

 

Has it added any value to your business?

So much. We have had 3 cases where we have not hired candidates, and 1 where we hired a candidate but in an entirely different role to what she had applied for. This has saved us in recruitment costs, as well as the impact hiring the wrong person would have had on our culture.

I would highly recommend Cross Check’s DISC profiling service for a recruitment process.
