Posted on 2019-04-22

As we all know, there is a lot of pressure on high school students to set the right goals. Teenagers are pressured to know exactly what they want, where they are going to college, and to have a full-on life plan by the age of 18.

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.

Let’s see how a coaching professional can best utilize the personality approach to guide change.
