Building a Winning Team

by | Feb 9, 2010 | Consulting, Leadership

No matter how small or large your organization may be or what industry you are in, you are probably under pressure to find and keep high-performing employees that can move your organization forward.

Regardless of how quickly or cost-effectively employees are brought on board, if they are not the best fit with your organization it could cost you valuable time and resources.   Your employees make up “the face” of your organization — how you are perceived by clients and by peers in the industry.   Finding and hiring quality individuals is very important to your organization, period.

Over time, the cost of turnover, poor quality, and low productivity will always be greater than the cost of investing in an effective hiring process.   That’s why it’s important to incorporate assessments into your hiring process.   Assessments can appear in several different forms including computer and web-based assessments, personality tests, or behavioral interviewing.   While assessments alone should not be the basis through which you hire, they can help you understand “fit” and improve communication.

At Infinity Concepts, we incorporate DiSC® personality tests into our hiring process and also offer the various DiSC assessments as a service option for clients.   The primary tools used at Infinity Concepts are DiSC profiles and the Inscape Core Collection.   The following four areas of measurement are included in the DiSC system:

  • D ominance –
    relating to control, power, and assertiveness
  • I nfluence –
    relating to social situations and communication
  • S teadiness –
    relating to patience, persistence, and thoughtfulness
  • C onscientiousness –
    relating to structure and organization

The technologies of this ground-breaking system will give you key insight into how individuals behave, communicate, and how they view their environment.   You will also ga in a better understanding about your personal behavior, the needs of others, and how to use the DiSC personal profile to adapt and build positive relationships.  With this knowledge, you will be able to:

  • Improve communication among your team
  • Increase productivity in your organization
  • Improve overall employee morale
  • Minimize conflict and stress
  • Maximize and build on personal strengths

Through the results of the DiSC assessment, you will be able to better understand yourself and others.   When you understand why people do what they do, you can place them in an environment where they are best suited.   When an individual is placed in the right place and right position, they will be more apt to thrive in your organization and be a loyal and productive contributor.

As good stewards, you want to be as effective as possible when it comes to building the right team.   Infinity Concepts will work hand-in-hand with you to maximize your potential in every aspect and level of your organization.

Infinity Concepts proudly offers the DiSC Core Collection of assessments and workshops to help you build solutions for a wide range of needs from communication to conflict management to teambuilding.   Contact us today to see how these resources can empower your team!
