Goal Setting for Students with DISC

Posted on 2018-08-01

Why should students set goals? You could say it is the same as for anyone. How do you know where you are going and when you will get there if you don’t set goals? For students, it is perhaps even more important to learn this skillset early on, as they are still maturing and unsure of themselves. By developing into a long-term competency, goal setting will progress beyond just helping to improve academic performance, developing self-confidence and increasing motivation to providing a sense of purpose and forward momentum in all life’s endeavors.

Nail Your First Job Interview: Showcase Your Strengths

Posted on 2018-07-31

My first job interview was a complete nightmare. As I showed up in a brightly colored dress and tan heels, wobbling like a newborn giraffe, I couldn’t believe how misplaced I felt. Moments later, waiting in the small, yet elegant, lobby the feeling grew until it consumed me. It was as if I just knew deep down inside the job wasn’t meant to be mine.

Posted on 2018-07-26

One of the top 10 new year’s resolutions is living healthier, visiting the gym more often and maintaining this perfect vision that most of the modern fashion icons suggest.

DISC Dating Tips: Let your personality shine

Posted on 2018-07-24

We’ve all been on a terrible first date. Maybe you could have smiled more, shared a bit more about yourself, remembered not to mention an ex love affair, or maybe you just overindulged on the wine and spilled a forkful of pasta on your new outfit. A handful of my recent first dates have ended with unmet gazes and awkward goodbyes as we both pretended we’d make plans to catch up the following week.

Leading People Who Don’t Want to Follow?

Posted on 2018-07-12

5 tips to help leaders to lead unwilling followers Is a leader still a leader if there are no followers? This isn’t a riddle as much as a reality for some leaders who don’t have people willing to follow them. Is it them or me? This is the question leaders ask themselves that can bring about change and solutions. While the answer is not always clear, and both may be true in some cases (inexperienced leadership and unwilling participants) the responsibility is on the leader to get everyone on-board and excited about moving forward together in the same direction.

Matching career to your DISC personality

Posted on 2018-07-02

What do you want to be when you grow up? I think back to my childhood and the expectations of adults to answer this question. Not only from family members, but then the hard-skills assessments thrown at me in middle school, then high-school, and even again in college as I was struggling to figure out where I truly belonged. Having no real working knowledge of what a “career” was supposed to look like, I knew I had a natural talent in art, and at the time computers were the way of the future.

Business leaders today have a lot on their plate, maybe more now than any other time in history. As both blessing and burden, today there’s a plethora of resources (theoretical and practical) at a leader’s disposal to help him or her manage, engage, and build teams. Because technology is a driving factor in the workplace and is continually advancing, management practices and workforce conventions are always in flux to incorporate the latest trends.

Know yourself to grow yourself

Posted on 2018-06-21

I received a fortune recently that reads, “Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see.” This proverb perfectly describes how our observable, human behavior is a direct reflection of the nuances that make up our internal beings – how we think, our core values, what motivates us, etc. These internal makings are not always visible to us and unless the unknown is made known, we can be blind to what is holding us back from reaching our true potential. It is our human nature to be on a constant quest for self-discovery and happiness, and sometimes we need to utilize tools to help us realize where to start.
