    We are into our third month of working virtually and different personality styles are responding very differently to our new way of working.

Others are only surviving, missing out on the connection and community that comes with being in the office.In this episode, Sal Silvester connects with top DiSC expert Tammy Krings to talk about the four primary personality styles in the workplace using the DiSC model and how to connect with each style in a virtual environment. During this episode, you'll walk away with insights on how to remain a caring and connected leader while adapting your style to what others need as you drive performance and productivity.You can download the Using DiSC to Connect Virtually Toolkit on our website.

    How Managers Can Address Loss and Grief in the Workplace

    It is normal to not feel normal during this time. Our grief may be a response to losing our familiar way of living and working. As we enter the third month of this crisis, the topic of mental health is arising more often in the workplace. The challenge for leaders is knowing how to respond effectively as a manager and coach without stepping into the bounds of being a counselor or therapist. During this episode, Sal Silvester speaks with executive coach and psychotherapist Barry Shapiro about (1) a normal reaction to trauma, (2) what managers should do and not do in response to trauma, and (3) how can you take care of yourself so that you can be there for others.To help you implement ideas from this podcast, download the Manager's Guide to Surviving the Pandemic Toolkit on our website.
