Why DISC alone may not be enough?

Posted on 2019-06-06

Being an “ID” DISC personality style (also known as a “Persuader”) I love learning about myself, and the DISC behavioral assessment is another valuable tool for understanding how I interact with others. What you may notice in a DISC report is that while it’s helpful, it may sound too general. For example, one of the lines from my report states, “Michael tends to make decisions quickly and is comfortable making high-risk determinations.” This helps me reflect upon previous interactions and predict how I might react in the future, but doesn’t necessarily apply to my specific job role.

Memorial Day and other holidays surrounding remembrance offer a fantastic opportunity to not only consider loved ones who may have passed, but also to make a difference in the world. People often use Memorial Day to attract attention to important causes. Fortunately, DISC theory is a great tool used to assess and provide ideas on how different personalities can honor people and causes they care about.

DISC Baby Facts

Posted on 2019-04-05

I don’t know anyone else who has ever talked much about infants and DISC or tried to determine a newborn’s style, yet William Moulton Marston spent a lot of time discussing and writing about this topic. A proud father of a newborn infant, I joked about wanting an “S” baby so he would always be calm and peaceful. My friends at work think he will become a little “D” since the apple doesn’t always fall far from the tree. I guess this will be an interesting study of heredity vs environment and nurturing in determining a future personality style in little Michael.

Useful advice for DISC parenting styles

Posted on 2019-03-04

DISC is a tool widely used in business environments for hiring, team building and improving communication. The power of DISC, however, can go a long way and has applications far beyond the standard office setting. Being a unique approach to understanding human behavior and avoiding conflict, DISC can be applied at home too! PeopleKeys conducted a short survey on DISC parenting styles, and our responders (all of them teenagers) reported the following categories of parenting styles:

Opposites Attract, Actually

Posted on 2019-02-11

Music artist Paula Abdul’s 1988 release, “Opposites Attract” (written by songwriter Oliver Lieber) couldn’t be more on-point in describing how two opposite personality styles really can attract. In the lyrics, it seems completely ridiculous that the two opposing personality styles of what seems to be an “I” and an “S” or “C” paired together shouldn’t repel each other (i.e. one liking to stay up late and party while the other prefers to be in bed early). However, there are many instances it couldn’t be more the case that opposite personalities actually do attract.

Using DISC to Communicate with your Valentine

Posted on 2019-02-11

What is the nicest thing a loved one ever said to you? I don’t mean “I love you” or “You’re my sweetheart!” I’m talking about someone who knew you well and offered a compliment that maybe even took you by surprise. Maybe he or she even spoke your DISC love language?

How to recognize DISC styles according to their goals

Posted on 2019-01-14

It has become somewhat of a tradition for people all around the world to make New Year’s resolutions or use the beginning of the year in order to motivate and challenge themselves for the months to come. Research shows that about 45% of the US population make at least one resolution, but sadly only 4% are still committed to their resolution by the end of the year. Setting goals is a positive approach to growth, so it is a good thing to set a lot of big and crazy goals, as well as some smaller and easier ones to accomplish. It’s really interesting to examine how people with different DISC types of personality arrange their list of goals and how to recognize their personality based on their aspirations.

4 ways to motivate athletes with DISC

Posted on 2018-12-20

Everyone is different, and we all deserve to be viewed as the unique human beings we are. People are motivated by different things, so it’s important for sport and fitness coaches to understand their athletes’ personalities in order to provide them with the most effective workouts at the right time. During any type of vigorous exercise, the mind of the athlete is constantly engaged with either a positive or negative thought. Planting the right, positive mindset could greatly affect an athlete’s performance; however, in order to accomplish this, the coach needs to conform to the athlete’s personality and way of thinking. Everyone is motivated by different things, which means what works for one might not really work for another.
