DISC personality and teaching style

Posted on 2019-08-07

Believe it or not, your personality not only dictates your behavior, but also the way you teach, the classroom environment you create, and even the results and motivation of your students. The more you understand who you are and the more you learn about behaviors in general, you will become a more "behaviorally intelligent" educator by applying DISC theory in your classroom environment and beyond. Have you ever had a student you just couldn’t seem connect with, no matter what you’ve tried? It may actually be a clash with your personality types, and you simply need to adjust your approach. Based on how the student reacts to your approach, you could find your own personality beginning to change and adjust to meet theirs with understanding. Easily discover which type of teaching style best relates to your personality type, and how can you apply it to the classroom by first taking your DISC Assessment.

Building resilient teams with DISC

Posted on 2019-07-29

Is your team better at dealing with stressful situations as they are taking place? Or, they are better at “getting over it” once they’ve had time to “cool down?” Psychological resilience is one of the key strengths we should all learn during our lifetime. Let’s take a closer look at how stress affects a team’s resilience and ability to overcome obstacles. A candidate's resilience strengths should be taken into consideration during any hiring process, especially when positioning new hires into immediate areas of concern and/or high-stressor environments. Team resilience development can also be applied when optimizing the existing workforce, replicating top performers and developing new leaders from within.

Every hiring manager knows it can be a daunting task to sift through resumes all day.

Coaching life changes for the passive personality styles

Posted on 2019-04-18

When it comes to dealing with stress, change and volatile situations, understanding DISC personality styles and communicating change in the proper way is always necessary. When you coach against life changes, a behavioral approach not only builds trust amongst all involved, but it allows each personality to contribute without the fear of conflict or confrontation. As we previously discussed in our blog about coaching life changes for the active personality styles, according to DISC theory personality styles can be separated into Active and Passive styles. The active “D” and “I” styles tend to react quickly to challenges and being stagnant drives them crazy. At the same time – the passive styles – “C” and “S” are more reserved and slower to accept change. Your main task as a life coach will be to help them understand that sometimes taking too much time to process an idea can become detrimental to progress and counterproductive to the situation. See more life coaching tips below.

Coaching life changes for the active personality styles

Posted on 2019-04-18

There are a lot of guidelines coaches implement to help handle transitions and support their clients from point A to point B. Let’s see how a coaching professional can best utilize the personality approach to guide change.

Turn Around a Failing Team by Leading from Within

Posted on 2019-04-12

When a client of ours, let’s call him Joseph, took over a company project, he knew it wouldn’t be easy to turn things around. The design team had fallen behind over the course of a year and a half. They were just six months away from the final delivery date originally committed and had blown through more than half-a-million dollars originally allocated to the entire project. Yet, there was still nothing ready to deliver to their client. There was a huge liability sitting on the table…one that would ruin the company entirely.
