People Born April 1 Have Higher Intelligence

Posted on 2019-03-29

Whether you hate April Fools’ Day or love it, one strange fact about the day is people born on April 1st have a higher rate of success in life. They tend to be overachievers, stay in relationships longer, and as one scientific study put it, “they even seem to have a higher IQ than average.” Being a left-handed, I love facts such as “one half of all astronauts are left handed” and other such trivia. I guess being born on April 1 must be even better than being born left-handed!

4 ways to improve your teaching skills

Posted on 2019-03-28

Every educator deals with a wide range of personalities and behaviors on a daily basis. There are always some overachievers, as well as those students who need just a little bit of a push in the right direction. They require undivided attention, but sometimes are overlooked. If they are meeting the milestones provided by academic boards, the educators’ efforts are considered a success. Some students aren’t given the right support, as an individual, to compete against their peers academically. Truth is it’s not that they can’t comprehend what’s being taught to them, as much as it is how they are being taught. Many of these kids are recklessly thrown into programs and classrooms, and aren’t encouraged to go that extra mile towards success. See below for a few suggestions on how to improve this situation.

Managing remote teams with DISC

Posted on 2019-03-14

We live in a versatile economy. It’s not unusual for companies to hire on a project-by-project basis or let their employees work remotely. Thus, they are minimizing overtime pay and overhead, and in some cases eliminating costs associated with office space or tax laws. In return, their employees are enjoying a little flexibility, taking on more than one project at once, and often earning more than they would as a full-time employee with the company. Remote or temp employees and project-based managers are in more demand than ever. While many companies actually have a full-time project management office staffed with in-house professionals, it’s becoming the norm to hire project managers that may not ever reach a physical office or those who control remote teams, globally dispersed around the world.

From Struggle to Strength - A Gen Z View of Scholastic Success

Posted on 2019-03-06

It appears the main issue for students in my Generation Z is that we don't understand the best way we can learn, and neither do our parents and teachers. School systems are made uniform so every student is presented with class materials the same exact way, takes a test the same exact way, and so on. While on the surface this promotes equality, every student has a unique personality and they do not learn or think the same. If more school systems were to incorporate DISC theory into the classroom, students would have a clearer picture of who they are, how they learn best and how to develop themselves. For example, many students struggle taking tests, others have a hard time focusing, and for others, knowing even how or what to study can be difficult. Self-awareness and a customized classroom would improve the well-being and grades of students because they are working in ways that best suits their needs and natural strengths.

DISC for young students' motivation and engagement

Posted on 2019-03-04

The prominent American author Brian Herbert has said, “The ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice.” This is a good reminder for every teacher and parent as they all have to struggle sometimes with discovering new ways to develop their children or students’ skills to learn as well as maintain their learning motivation. And since every child has a unique personality, the same approach will not work equally on everyone. Increasing learning motivation and classroom engagement can be achieved with the application of DISC.
