WHAT ARE YOU DOING ?!
You've probably asked this question or been asked this question, and...
You’re probably familiar with the downpour of emotions that flood you when working with other people who make you go: “What the heck?”
I’ve made a short list of them.
See if you recognize some of these people:
- The bossy, “never say no” go-getter who rushes to get things done and stops only for a quick snack or to accept another challenge.
- The boisterous talker who doesn't seem to know when to be serious, lower his voice...or switch-off the entertaining mode for just a moment.
- The extremely patient peacekeeper who acts like all is well in the world... who compassionately eats lunch with the person who just reheated fish in the office lunch room microwave...again.
- The "know-it-all" doubter who pushes-back on you, questions everything, and finds a way to ruin the beauty of a rainbow with an bland, scientific explanation of this natural phenomenon.
Now that you’ve connected these behavior styles to people you know, and even recalled some events (both good and bad), you should know something...
There is a way to handle all these styles without scorching in an emotional inferno of negativity and stress.
The truth is that all these behavioral styles are really valuable.
Just a few additions to your skillset and you’ll open a treasure of achievement only few enjoy.
THE DISC IS MORE THAN A TOOL...
The DISC assessment provides you with a detailed analysis on how to better identify, understand and effectively use the various behavior styles.
Once the 15-minute questionnaire is complete, you’ll receive a report with detailed explanations of your “Natural” and “Adaptive” behavioral styles, and their strengths and weaknesses.
(We can tell you more about this during your DISC debrief and coaching sessions.)
Better still, it allows you to better recognize, understand and deal more effectively with the other people’s styles in your personal life and workplace.
That's the jackpot.
BUT THE DISC IS NOT MAGIC...
It doesn’t tell you who you are or who you'll be. That, right there, belongs to a Higher Power.
However, it is incredibly useful for revealing how people prefer to act and how others judge their behaviors.
DISC is a starting point to be aware of how you show-up now for other people, to then choose to show-up even better the next time.
The DISC helps answer the "What" questions. They're the age-old questions of:
"What’s the best way to work with them?"
"What can I do to better to reduce the tension with everyone?"
"What is the best way to improve team solidarity?"
Well, now you'll know.
The DISC partners well with the Motivators assessment...like this:
- The DISC shows you "what" you're doing and the MOTIVATORS shows you "why" you do what you do.
Put them together and you'll be ready for a great performance.
