What Is DiSC?
Formally defined, DiSC is a behavioral model used to explain behavior, motivation and communication styles. It is based upon the work of Dr. William Marston and his book “Emotions of Normal People,” written in 1928. The purpose of DiSC is to demonstrate that though all people are different, their differences are predictable because of certain underlying factors that exist in combination within every individual. DiSC is an assessment tool that delivers information, but not judgment. There is no pass or fail, right or wrong. The results are simply informational and intended to help you understand your personality as well as those of others. In doing so, you will be equipped to make adjustments when dealing with others to result in a more happy and effective life.

How DiSC Relates to You During Divorce
How you communicate as divorce moves along can create conditions for inflammation, contentiousness, bitterness and fury. Or, it can create conditions for compassion, empathy, compromise and peace. You MUST understand your personality and why you do what you do so you can temper traits that cause friction or elevate ones that keep dialogue reasonable.

A DiSC Assessment lets you know whether you are inclined to be:

  • dominant
  • influential
  • steady
  • conscientious

It tells you which traits are operative when you are relaxed and which ones become intensified or suppressed under stress. Divorce implies a certain degree of stress in most cases, so it is imperative you understand how these conditions can impact you. It is even more imperative that you adjust your behavior, with this awareness in mind, to help keep all divorce negotiations as peaceful as possible.

A DiSC assessment is typically the first step of all my Coaching engagements, though it is available as an independent service without an extended Coaching commitment.
