Everything DiSC Management on Catalyst: Directing and Delegating
Everything DiSC Management on Catalyst doesn’t just explain how directing & delegating is supposed to work. It provides deep insights that are customized towards a manager’s behavioral style.
These insights increase in personalization if the manager’s direct report also has a Workplace on Catalyst profile. However, it’s not required for the manager’s direct reports to have one.
Whether a manager is joining a DiSC Training Workshop or using the platform on their own, Catalyst will provide the ability to immediately apply what they are learning towards with direct reports.
Learning to direct and delegate direct reports is a vital aspect of a manager’s job. Many managers know this, but they try to direct and delegate the same way for each employee.
However, before managers can learn how to more effectively delegate, they must learn what they do naturally so they know how they typically approach this process.
Once a manager learns how they naturally direct and delegate, Everything DiSC Catalyst will show how a manager is able to adjust their communication based on the employee’s DiSC Style.
This process is called stretching. It’s a crucial part for anyone when trying to better communicate. For a manager who wants to delegate effectively, they will need to learn how to communicate based on their employee’s DiSC style. Fortunately, Catalyst will show them how.
The Catalyst platform is foundational in providing managers space to connect these insights towards real applications. However, for the best results, it’s recommended to have an in-house trainer purchase the Catalyst Facilitation kit or to contract a third-party trainer to run a DiSC Workshop for your managers.
The Everything DiSC Catalyst facilitation kit includes everything that is needed to run an outstanding DiSC Management workshop using the Catalyst platform.
DiSC Management on Catalyst: Learning how to create a motivating environment
Everything DiSC Management on Catalyst doesn’t teach how you motivate people. It’s impossible.
Rather, the program helps managers discover how to establish an environment where individuals are able to motivate themselves. Ultimately, we all must choose to become motivated – it’s not something anyone can give us.
Managers must learn how to build an atmosphere that meets all employee’s basic needs and preferences so they can do their best work. However, before managers can start to create this environment, they must understand the atmosphere that they are creating based on their behavioral style.
After a manager is able to understand the environment they naturally create, Catalyst will help them recognize how they might need to adapt the environment on the team to be more open to other behavioral styles.
Similarly to the directing and delegating section of Catalyst, the Creating a Motivating Environment section is equipped with an intuitive tool where a manager can search for individuals on their team to learn how to adapt the teams environment towards their behavioral needs.
Learning how to create a motivating environment isn’t a skill that is developed by only using the insights on this platform. It’s a skill that requires constant practice. For organizations that are serious about developing their manager’s skillsets to include creating a motivating environment, we strongly suggest purchasing the Everything DiSC Catalyst facilitation kit.
Included in this kit are specific activities, videos, and instructions for how managers can learn to create a motivating environment.

Everything DiSC Management on Catalyst: Learning how to create a motivating environment
Many managers don’t recognize that they are responsible for their employee’s development. Their team goals are directly tied to how well they are able to coach, mentor, and upskill their direct reports. If employees aren’t able to upskill or have the resources to develop, team and organizational goals can falter.
Managers must learn how to support employees’ long-term professional growth by providing resources, environments, and opportunities to capitalize on their employee’s potential.
The DiSC Management program on Catalyst teaches managers how to learn this skill by first helping managers recognize how they might naturally approach developing talent. This self-awareness piece is crucial so managers can then learn how to adapt their approach based on the unique needs of their direct reports.
For any manager to learn and apply these insights, it’s recommended that managers participate in an Everything DiSC Catalyst training program that features the Management Training. The Catalyst platform is just one tool that learners will use to improve management skillsets like developing talent.
Organizations with an internal L&D or Human Resources team will benefit from purchasing the Catalyst facilitation kit because it contains everything that is needed to run an outstanding management training program. Additionally, it includes training modules for the Everything DiSC Workplace and Agile EQ.
DiSC Management Training Module: Managing Up
Many managers might forget that their management duties also require them to ‘manage’ their own manager.
This type of management won’t require developing their boss’s talent. Rather, it will require managers to influence the decisions that their own boss makes so the whole team can thrive.
