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.

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.

Expand your Coaching Network with your “Net Worth”

Posted on 2019-02-25

Networking can be an uncomfortable feat for many coaches entering their first few years in business. They’re intimidated by titles and worried decision-makers are unapproachable. In fact, making more connections means growing your coaching network and increasing your potential client outreach. Following up with your network not only warrants eventual contracts in the future, but it also keeps interested parties “in the loop.” As your coaching network begins to grow, your efforts will not go unnoticed. You can build your network by participating within local chapters and organizations, frequenting mixers and events, and even socially through sites such as Alignable and LinkedIn. While we have heard the cliché, “it’s not about what you know, it’s about who you know,” there is truth to the matter. Here are a few points to consider:

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.

A Positive Approach to Personality

Posted on 2018-05-29

  As someone who has embodied many aspects of the high S and C personality dimensions, I feel qualified to say that our more extroverted high I-style counterparts may have a slight advantage over S and C styles when it comes to staying positive.
