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.

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.

Manage Stress with DISC

Posted on 2013-05-01

When faced with a serious threat to survival, the human body is hard wired to respond with a “fight or flight” reaction. The fight or flight impulse is controlled by the brain and the central nervous system, and results in the release of over 30 different hormones into the bloodstream. These hormones speed the body up, making a person feel extraordinarily alert and focused. The heart races, the pupils dilate, the blood pressure rises, and the body tenses itself to either face the danger at hand, or flee.
