Understanding Yourself and Others
The DISC measures observable behaviors and emotions. Just as the speed in which we talk is different, our behavior, our styles are different. Some people are outgoing, and some are shy. Some people are very detail-oriented and others see the big picture and details bore them.
I encourage you to read about Dr. William Marston’s DISC model and familiarize yourself with the four fundamental styles of people: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness. The “types” or “styles” of people are directional. Some people will be strong in one area or they may be strong in two or three. Understanding our differences allows us to understand and communicate more effectively and thus build trust and relationships.
