Soft skills to borrow from each DISC style

Posted on 2019-07-03

While hard skills, such as typing, computer programming, and proficiency in a foreign language may be emphasized in schools to prepare for the workforce, soft skills are just as needed and sometimes even underrated. Everyone is born with specific natural soft skills, which we develop and enhance as we grow. These skills are essential in many different aspects of life and some of them include: communication, effective time management, creative thinking, loyalty, and teamwork.

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.

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?
