How to Develop an Agile Workforce with Agile EQ

Rebooting Employee Morale and Productivity Series 

The events of recent months have tested the leadership mettle and the agility of people in organizations in ways we’ve not seen before. For years we have been talking about a VUCA world in which the business environment is volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous and now we have that on steroids. The more disrupted our “normal” lives become, the more critical a truly agile workforce is to success.

The opportunity for leaders in organizations now is to equip themselves and their people with the tools, training, and coaching to enable people to be self-directed, flexible, and resilient. Agile takes on a whole new meaning today. Companies tended to consider restructuring alone as a “transformation effort” without taking the agility and flexibility of its workforce into account. For more on the need to understand the Psychology of the Agile Worker, see this ebook entitled “Agility Unlocked: Revealing the Connection Between Agility and Emotional Intelligence.”

While redesigning organizational structures from overly bureaucratic, hierarchical organizations to more fluid, flatter, matrixed ones is a part of the solution, it is not enough. We need to prepare people with the increased emotional intelligence in order to become more agile and flexible in the new world of work.

To learn how to begin this journey, please join us for a complimentary webinar, Thursday, May 21 at 12:00 noon EDT. REGISTER HERE

We’ll introduce you to the new Everything DiSC Agile EQ Learning Experience. This solution is an assessment-based learning experience designed to teach people how to read the emotional and social needs of the situation and respond accordingly. People learn to develop an agile approach to workplace interaction and team situations by learning their EQ strengths and areas for growth and development. They also learn how to stretch outside their comfort zone so they can better meet the demands of any situation that this new world of work throws at them.

As a coaching tool, The Everything DiSC Agile EQ Profile helps employees:

  1. Discover their instinctive mindsets which shape their default responses and interactions.
  2. Recognize opportunities to stretch beyond what comes naturally to them.
  3. Take action to become more agile in their approach to social and emotional situations.

In short, these tools help people to increase their self-awareness and self-management skills. They also help develop a greater social awareness of their colleagues and team members so they can better manage their relationships at work.
