As your business grows and your team expands, the complexity and frequency of “people problems” also increase. While growth is exciting, it brings its own set of challenges, particularly in managing and understanding the diverse personalities that make up your team. The good news? People are predictably different, and DISC offers a way to easily navigate these differences.

Common “People Problems” in Small Business

Running a small business means facing a unique set of challenges every day. Among these, “people problems” can be the most perplexing due to your team’s and clients’ varied personalities and behaviors. Here are some of the most common issues:

  1. Misunderstandings and Miscommunication: When team members don’t speak the same “language,” confusion reigns.
  2. Personality Clashes: Different work styles can lead to friction and disrupt workplace harmony.
  3. Leadership Challenges: Finding the right way to motivate and guide a diverse team can be daunting.
  4. Customer Service Issues: Providing every customer with a consistent and understanding service experience requires insight into their preferences.
  5. Team Imbalance: Building a team where everyone’s strengths are utilized and weaknesses are balanced is often easier said than done.
  6. Resistance to Organizational Changes: Introducing new strategies or tools can meet with pushback from those set in their ways.
  7. Hiring and Retention Difficulties: Attracting and keeping the right candidates can be a puzzle if you don’t know what makes them tick.
  8. Sales Strategy Misalignment: A one-size-fits-all approach to sales ignores the varied buying behaviors of your potential market.

Empower Your Team with DISC Assessments
