Managing remote teams with DISC

Posted on 2019-03-14

We live in a versatile economy. It’s not unusual for companies to hire on a project-by-project basis or let their employees work remotely. Thus, they are minimizing overtime pay and overhead, and in some cases eliminating costs associated with office space or tax laws. In return, their employees are enjoying a little flexibility, taking on more than one project at once, and often earning more than they would as a full-time employee with the company. Remote or temp employees and project-based managers are in more demand than ever.

4 Ways Small Business Can Benefit from Cognitive HR

Posted on 2018-10-31

Cognitive computing is here to stay and it is revolutionizing healthcare, the way we shop, and the way we work. Data analysis in human resources (i.e. people analytics) is having a surprising impact on corporate profits by way of increasing job satisfaction, retention and productivity, which has made executives take notice. Over time, HR leaders are thinking more like owners, as HR departments adopt cognitive HR systems to increase hard numbers (like profits) with softer ideals (like job fulfillment).

Matching career to your DISC personality

Posted on 2018-07-02

What do you want to be when you grow up? I think back to my childhood and the expectations of adults to answer this question. Not only from family members, but then the hard-skills assessments thrown at me in middle school, then high-school, and even again in college as I was struggling to figure out where I truly belonged.
