February. The month we look to the people in our life we are the closest to and tell them how much we love them. The foundation of great personal and professional relationships lies in understanding yourself, understanding others, and realizing the impact of personal behavior on others. When I work on improving relationships of any kind with my clients, I use an assessment called DiSC©.

For over thirty years, DiSC© Classic has unlocked the door to productive communication and relationships for over 40 million people throughout its DiSC© Dimensions of Behavior learning approach.

Set the Standard for Self-Understanding
DiSC Dimensions of Behavior provide a nonjudgmental language for exploring behavioral issues across four primary dimensions:

  • Dominance: Direct and Decisive. D’s are strong-willed, strong-minded people who like accepting challenges, taking action, and getting immediate results.
  • Influence: Optimistic and Outgoing. i’s are ‘people people’ who like participating on teams, sharing ideas, and energizing and entertaining others.
  • Steadiness: Sympathetic and Cooperative.S’s are helpful people who like working behind the scenes, performing in consistent and predictable ways, and being good listeners.
  • Conscientiousness: Concerned and Correct. C’s are sticklers for quality and like planning ahead, employing systematic approaches, and checking and rechecking for accuracy.

Which one are you? Are you a combination?
