PeopleKeys would like to announce a change in their DISC Certification and DISC Training requirements. A change in curriculum has taken place and in order to become a Certified Behavioral Consultant by PeopleKeys, one will now have to complete both the Level 1 Introduction and Level 2 Advanced courses of DISC Certification. The Certified Behavioral Consultant Accreditation will now be given when one completes both levels of DISC Certification and DISC Training either through online courses, paper courses, or through live DISC Certification and Training sessions. Anyone completing only the Level I DISC Certification Course, Introduction to Behavioral Analysis, will receive a certificate of completion. The second level can be taken at a later date to complete the DISC Certification and receive the Certified Behavioral Consultant Accreditation (CBC) Online.

Parenting Advice Based on DISC Personality

Posted on 2012-06-11

Since Mother's Day has recently passed, we want to talk about parenting for this month's DISC Insight. Naturally, a parent wants their children to be happy, healthy, and safe, but since parenting comes with no clear set of rules, how do we set about accomplishing this? It has much to do with what we choose to incorporate from our own parents, our values systems, our support systems, and our situations in life. But also, our personality style and natural tendencies in communication. To go one step further, our children are people too, so they also have personality styles, specific needs and fears, and natural tendencies in communication. By understanding our own styles and those of our children, we can increase communication, anticipate insecurities, and avoid some very predictable conflicts. Below is a very brief breakdown based on primary DISC styles.

History of the DISC Assessment

Posted on 2012-05-07

People often wonder, what exactly is a DISC Assessment?  Let’s start off with a little background on DISC and the man who created it, Dr. William Marston (pictured below).  He was a Harvard scholar and published a book in 1928 called Emotions of Normal People which explains his theory of how one’s normal emotions leads to behavioral differences, and that each persons behavior might change over time.  In his work he also came up with four behavioral styles: Drive, Influence, Submission, and Caution. These four styles became the building blocks to the modern day DISC assessment, although we have renamed "Submission" to "Steadiness" and we now use "Compliance" instead of "Caution."  Although Marston built the groundwork for DISC, it wasn’t until the 1940′s that an actual personality profile test was created by Walter Clark, an industrial psychologist.
