Everything DiSC Workplace: Understanding Yourself and What Makes You Tick!

Click here to watch a summary of the blog.

Have you ever wondered why some people love being the center of attention and developing new relationships, while others prefer to work independently and solve problems with logic?  Your DiSC profile can help you to understand yourself better and what makes you tick!

William Moulton Marston Emotions of Normal People

The DiSC® Model of Behavior was first proposed in 1928 by William Moulton Marston, a physiological psychologist, in a book entitled Emotions of Normal People. From his research, Marston theorized that the behavioral expression of emotions could be categorized into four primary types, stemming from the person’s perceptions of self in relationship to his or her environment.

Although people generally fall into one of the four categories (D-i-S-C), you will often find that someone will fall somewhere in between 2 categories.  This blend of two categories will likely have a primary (or stronger) type, followed by a secondary (not quite as strong) type, which allows us to understand the likely priorities (what is really important) to you!

The Everything DiSC Workplace profile will uncover what your personal motivators and stressors are.  Understanding yourself is the first step in improving relationships with those that surround you.  And that’s not limited to your peers, subordinates or boss – that includes your spouse, your aunt or your grandma.  This is powerful stuff!  When I facilitate Everything DiSC Workplace workshops, some of the comments I hear almost every session are “wow – it’s like someone is inside my head” or “have you been following me secretly?”.
