Your Relationships Are Your Key To Success!


"DISC personality model"Life and happiness are about relationships with other people.  Typically you will find that the people that are the happiest in life have good relationships with their significant other, children, friends, employers or employees and coworkers.  There are two books on my “Top Ten” book list that have personally helped me have better relationships.  The “Go-Giver” by Bob Burg and John David Mann and Who Do You Think You Are…anyway? by Robert A. Rohm, Ph.D.

The “Go-Giver” speaks more to making an attitude adjustment using the basic laws of life while “Who Do You Think You Are…anyway?” teaches you how to speak to people in the way they need to hear so that they are listening to what you say.  I learned about this method in training to be a real estate agent several years ago.  The method is called the “DISC model.”  It was devised by Dr. William Marston, a Harvard graduate, over 80 years ago.  Dr. Marston is also known as the “Father of the Polygraph” and he was the comic book writer that created Wonder Woman.  The DISC model has been tried and tested by researchers for a very long time and continues to be validated.

The theory or model states that people are driven by an outgoing or reserved approach to life and that our direction is steered toward tasks or people. Everyone has a dominant trait but their style is really a blend of all of the traits. The “D” type = dominant, determined, doer.  The “I” type = inspirational, impressive, influencer.  The “S” type = steady, stable, supporter.  The “C” type = cautious, competent, calculator.

    We tend to forget that we deal with people with different personality types. After all we see the world from behind our eyes only. It is important to study the other types to build that all important relationship.

    Thanks Lauren for your thoughts.

    Hi Lauren,
    I also learnt about Disc profiling when I was working in a sales role. You have reminded me that this information can be useful with all relationships and since I have been told that I have a tendency to let people walk all over me and need to be more vocal, I think that I should look at this again.
