1 hour 5 minutes
Learn how DISC can function as your guide to understanding people and how to best interact with them.
Have you ever noticed that of all of the people in your organization, the one person you would like to avoid working with is usually placed on your team or projects? Do you ask yourself, why do I have to work with them again and again? You might have even said something like, ‘It is as if we are speaking two different languages.’ And you probably are. DISC. DISC is a personality and behavior framework model that is used to understand and communicate with other people. The DISC personality model classifies people into four overarching behavioral categories, and these categories represent four separate and sometimes conflicting tendencies that impact aspects of everyone’s personality, such as their risk tolerance, openness, optimism, autonomy, and more. The DISC framework gives us the tools to understand and communicate more effectively with one another. By using insights offered to us through DISC, we can learn to employ empathy and open-mindedness in our communication.
The more you learn about the DISC types, the better you can understand when to be calm, when to be excited, when to consider new ideas, when to be blatantly assertive, etc. DISC can function as your guide to understanding people and how to best interact with them.
