An organization’s true potential lies within its people.  Finding those talented individuals is the first step, but the biggest leap in people satisfaction, collaboration, and performance is realized when you connect everyone on a more human level.  Hawaii Employers Council (“HEC”) will give you the tools to do just that.  We want to transform talented individuals into collaborative, thriving cultures by empowering people to engage, unlocking hidden potential, and arming your organization with personalized and actionable insights that make change tangible.

HEC, through its partnership with Wiley, offers customizable workshops utilizing the Everything DiSC® assessment tool, and the innovative team-building program The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™.

What is Everything DiSC®?

What if people had their needs written all over them?  You would know which coworkers like being the center of attention and those who prefer to share their ideas privately.  You would know which coworkers need a little extra reassurance and those who like more independence.  You would be able to realize that the coworker who is constantly discussing worst-case scenarios does not think the project is going to fail, but simply wants to be sure that it’s successful.

Everything DiSC® provides you with a tool to quickly recognize the needs and priorities of your coworkers and helps explain why people are the way they are and why they do the things they do.  Using adaptive testing and sophisticated algorithms, the DiSC assessment tailors questions based on an individual's responses to provide the most powerful, personalized feedback possible.  Everything DiSC® helps people at any level of an organization or industry to understand their own personality styles as well as the styles of others.  It will help you determine what you need to do to work better with the people around you.
