DiSC, a model of human behavior, helps individuals understand how our normal emotional responses adapt to the demands of people, situation, and societal expectations. When people broaden their understanding of their behavioral styles and preferences, they gain new and valuable insights and awareness of self, others, and the situations (S.O.S.) they encounter. Harnessed with new S.O.S. insights, people are better equipped to more purposefully and intentionally respond and adapt to specific people and situations in order to work more effectively with individuals and teams. DiSC was developed by Dr. William Marston, PhD., and seeks to identify the degree to which we each utilize four “primary emotions” and associated behavior responses. Today, we know these “primary emotions” as Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness. The DiSC concepts created by Marston and later researched and updated by Dr. John Geier, PhD., have helped over 45 million people in 24 languages over the last 30+ years. DiSC provides a unique invitation to individuals to evolve into better integrated people who were more independent and able to realize true happiness in their work and personal lives.
