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 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.
