Mind Your Farm Business — Ep. 75: Personality assessments and their role in business culture

The work culture of a farm is much like its reputation — whether it’s intentional or not, it still exists.

What makes a work culture? It’s not just people, it’s the behaviour of the people and how well they live out a business’s core values that create a work culture.

People’s behaviour is shaped by their personality, explains Todd Millar, president and CEO of TEC Canada, and understanding personality in a constructive, objective way can pay real dividends when developing a farm team.

Personality profile assessments, such as DiSC, can help farm leadership teams better understand each other, what makes them tick, and how best to approach conflict. In this episode of Mind Your Farm Business, Millar explains how our personalities shape behaviour and the value in having a team perform an assessment.
