We are big fans of the DISC Personality Assessment and have taken countless people through it over the last year alone. In fact, we became certified Human Behavior Consultants with Uniquely You. Criticized for “putting people in a box,” the DISC assessment has also been the rave of many who determined whether they have “otter” traits or “sanguine” characteristics.

The First Axis

The first axis is about how you interact with the world. Are you more active or more reserved? Do you want to tell people about your day or wait for someone to ask you?1 Outgoing v Reserved

The Second Axis

The second axis is about how you view success. Do you prefer to accomplish tasks and feel productive? Or is your success viewed through the relationships you made or the people you connected with today?

2 Task v Relationship

Now you have an idea of where you might land. You can continue your self assessment by looking at the four quadrants which then spell out the acronym DISC.

D– Driver, Determined
I– Influencer, Inspirer
S– Steady, Shy, Stable
C– Conscientious, Careful, Cautious

A Deeper Look

Why not let us walk you through it a little more? We have a 3-hour personality workshop coming on July 11, 2015 for individuals ages 10 and up. You an bring your friends, co-workers, family, spouse, neighbor or more! We are including the DISC assessment with the interactive workshop and it will be a lot of fun, too.

Why It Matters

Some might wonder what is the value of studying DISC? Or talking about personality at all? When you identify traits about the unique you, you are better able to connect with others and make a positive impact on the world. Personality impacts how people communicate and how they view the world. How have you seen personality awareness be a benefit?

    Abigail, I met both you and Scott at the Better Breathers Club (led by Dawn Thompson, RN) at Allen Presby. I would very much like y’all to come to a DFW Breathe SG meeting and share the DISC theory with the patient members. I also took the liberty of
    suggesting your coaching to the PFF Foundation up in Chicago since I am on a national committee to create a webinar for SG leaders globally. We want the potential leaders and the ones currently to look at the different personalities because not all learning styles are the same. When you couple it with a chronic illness such as pulmonary fibrosis, I personally believe it’s paramount to good communication as this illness can be a heavy load of stress during the journey. More later…
    Thank you, Cindi Brannum (972-754-1125 cell)
