  • What Happens When We Don't Adjust Our DISC Style?

    You absolutely should use your behavioral strengths to succeed, but what happens when you don't make adjustments? Oftentimes, when I facilitate a DISC session and talk about adjusting your DISC style, participants wonder, "are you saying I need to be someone else?" Actually, it's quite the opposite. The goal is to embrace your true self and have a full understanding of your natural behavioral style(s), and how others perceive the style(s). DISC assessments are more than just self-awareness; they provide a map to show you where you are, and guide you through effective behavioral modification. Check out the entire blog here. More »

  • Taking the KISS Approach to DISC

    You've likely heard of the KISS approach(Keep it Simple Stupid) to doing many things. While we're clearly NOT stupid, we can all benefit from a more straightforward approach to using DISC. The KISS approach is a design principle adopted by the U.S. Navy in the 1960s to build military jets. There are variations of what KISS stands for; other common meanings are 'keep it short and simple' and 'keep it simple and straightforward'. However you choose to define KISS, the concept remains the same; focusing on simplicity and avoid over complication. Check out the entire blog here. More »
