Coaching Employees Through Interpersonal Differences

Since the pandemic, many employers have experienced a rise in the number of interpersonal disputes among employees. These conflicts may reflect long-standing friction that went dormant during COVID, employees out-of-practice at making small talk by the proverbial water cooler, or employees no longer willing to tolerate an aggravating co-worker or demanding boss. Lake Effect has helped many organizations address these employee relations issues quickly and effectively using the Everything DiSC® methodology.

Everything DiSC is a versatile tool that can be used in employee and executive coaching sessions, mediation, and group training to break down friction among coworkers, strengthen teams, and professionally develop individuals. The personalized Everything DiSC Workplace Profile® that each employee receives provides a great starting point to coach employees through challenging situations, transitions, and pivots. Even in the face of conflict and stress, employees who know their own DiSC style and those of their co-workers can modify their behavior and approach to communicate more effectively and productively with others. Very quickly, the DiSC framework helps your employees improve teamwork, communication, and productivity by developing a common communication language in the workplace.

In the post-COVID world, employees are returning to the workplace with new expectations and aspirations. By providing them with Everything DiSC assessment and training, you are providing them with the resources to improve their workplace interactions and overall experience. You also demonstrate your commitment to their future and professional development. Contact your partners at Lake Effect to help you maximize your workplace potential.

Career Coaching Services

In response to continuing financial challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, employers may be compelled to consider layoffs, furloughs, or terminations. Even when faced with such difficult decisions, employers can take steps to care for their workers and help them transition to new opportunities. Organizations might consider offering career coaching and outplacement advisory services to affected staff. These services provide support, help and guidance to workers as they initiate new job searches or contemplate career changes.

Lake Effect can be a valuable partner in these efforts. Our experienced HR advisors and coaches can assist by meeting individually with staff, reviewing their skills, interests, and goals, and rebuilding confidence to explore new opportunities.

These personalized insights can help workers be more effective interviewers and strengthen future workplace interactions.
