When team members are placed in roles that are not a true fit for them, it can make that person feel stuck, or uncertain that they add value to a project or business. Thriving in any workplace depends on your role aligning with your natural gifts. We all fit into a category that complements our gifting: entrepreneur, manager/leader or maybe you are an artist.
Conflict: Square Pegs in Round Holes
In every business, there is conflict and a need for conflict management. The key is to minimize conflict. More often than you may realize, conflict is caused by poor alignment! Someone is in a role that they are truly and simply not aligned for. Their natural gifts are not being utilized, and they are trying to fit into a role that is not meant for them. Now you have a team member whose gifts are going to waste and this may be causing frustration and lack of vision. DiSC® will help you avoid this in the future and help you make the proper adjustments now! No more round pegs in square holes.
Perhaps you are that round peg? Starting with ourselves is always a good place to start so we can show others how to apply it with their own teams.
