Assessments  - 
 
And older article, but it gives you some insights into how assessments are created. (At least at Wiley.)
Curious about how a personality assessment like DiSC gets developed? We spoke with two of the developers for the new Everything DiSC Work of Leaders and asked them to explain their process. Mark Scullard, director of research (an S style) and Emma Wilhelm, senior writer and product developer (a DC style), give us some insights into their work at Inscape Publishing.<div class=

OMG. I'm also a high C so this is driving me nuts. PDF files are almost impossible to edit. This has been out in the public for a long time and you're the first person to point it out. Thank you. I truly appreciate being able to fix problems. This document will have to be completely recreated. 
   You can find the answers, of course, at http://www.discprofiles.com/blog/2011/12/test-your-knowledge-of-disc-styles/

Container homes  - 
 
Good works.
Getting homeless veterans off of the streets. That’s the goal of the newly formed nonprofit Veterans Housing Development Corp., an organization working to turn 8-foot by 40-foot shipping containers into homes for veterans who don’t have them.

How come whenever I start working on a presentation about Google Analytics or Google Webmaster, they go and make changes? 
Google aims to get more on users Google Webmaster Tools by renaming it to Google Search Console.

Discussion  - 
 
I gave a presentation today, having been told I'd have a PC hooked up to a screen. Instead I had a Mac hooked up to five screens around the room. It's a challenge to keep participants' eyes on you or to receive feedback from them when they are looking at a screen with their backs towards you. So my advice today is to avoid the multiple screen setup, if possible.
   I brought my presentation on a USB drive. The location for it at the podium meant that it stuck out. And, yes, I leaned into it and bent it beyond repair. Luckily, I had saved my presentation to the desktop. So my second piece of advice is to have multiple sources for your slides/video.

Anyone else have any disasters-avoided stories?

Laurie sent me a copy of a letter she sends out before using Everything DiSC during onboarding. I made a few modifications to it and would love to see what you use.

+Welcome aboard!!+

My name is _ and I am one of the [job title or function] for [company name]. One of the areas that I manage is the Everything DiSC Profile Personality Assessment Program. In addition, I will also be conducting New [job title, function or department] Onboarding on [date]. 

Please read the info below as it will explain Everything DiSC® and why [company name] has chosen to use this tool.

I am looking forward to working with you all next week,

[signature]


As full-time employees, we spend 40 hours a week at work. Over the course of a year, that adds up to 2,000 hours, which is the equivalent of spending 83 days – all day long – together. 

If we are going to spend that much time together, communicating effectively and finding ways to get along are very important. 

[Company name] has chosen to use Everything DiSC, a behavioral assessment tool that is used to improve work productivity, teamwork, and communication. 

DiSC profiles will help you and your team:
• Increase self-knowledge: how you respond to conflict, what motivates you, what causes you stress, and how you solve problems 
• Learn how to adapt your own style to get along better with others 
• Facilitate better teamwork and minimize unproductive team conflict 
• Develop stronger sales skills by identifying and responding to customer styles 
• Manage more effectively by understanding the dispositions and priorities of employees and team members
To complete your assessment, please look for an email from [company or facilitator name] (mailto:name@inscape-epic.com). The assessment is not a test; there are no right or wrong answers. It will take 10-15 minutes to complete, answering the questions instinctively based on how you see yourself at work. 

The results will be discussed during the DiSC portion of Orientation on [day]. 

Let me know if you have any questions,

[signature]

Your Container Store - we sell, modify and deliver containers.

I've worked with Katherine for several years. She and her staff have always graciously answered my stupid questions and they've made me money.

Very competitive on pricing. Their shipping charges were about the same as the other quotes I received, but the price for the container was less. They answer their phone and were quite helpful with my long list of questions. I eventually decided to delay making a purchase and was not strong-armed or shamed for that.

The menu is small but the food was tasty. The service was excellent, but they did run out of tea. Having done so, they deducted the cost of the tea we've already enjoyed from the tab.

You get what you pay for. I'd be much happier if the equipment was kept in better repair, if they cleaned thoroughly and much more often, if reps were friendly, and even a waste basket by the front door would be nice. I go during the day, before or after noon, and there are no problems with crowding.

I took a friend out for her birthday. We both had tempura. We were both sick the next morning. I also had sushi which was OK, but the ginger was dry. My friend received a free ice cream. The service was slow. Very disappointing.
