Me, Kristin and Emma have been planing away for our up coming lecture next week. It’s amazing that our event sold out straight away! So excited for it all! Working with like minded souls is always fun,
Kristin and I have done a DISC analysist test with Emma recently and it was not a chock that both were dominant yellow. (+ a mix of the other colours, more about that next week)

Here is some more facts regarding DISC Theory:
‘Human behavior is not cut and dry or black and white, which is why DISC theory consists of a combination of these DISC Personality Styles.
It’s possible, but rare that someone only has Dominance within their Personality Traits, but more likely that they have Dominance as the highest factor, with Steadiness as a secondary factor, and a little bit of Influence as a third.
Taking into account someone’s primary, secondary, tertiary and even absent personality traits allows us to see the unique blend of their DISC personality types and how this affects their every day actions, preferences in different environments, communication with others, ability to organize, reactions or avoidance to conflict, and more.
By understanding someone’s DISC personality blend, we can take proactive steps to placing that person in environments where they’ll feel comfortable and empowered, approach them in a way that they’ll react positively to, and better understand and predict their actions and reactions in general. Human behavior is complex, yet predictable’
It’s the “color palette of the personality”.
The DISC Theory research that Marston conducted in the 1920’s continues today to give us great insight into human behavior and DISC Personality Types.
I have about 40 pages to read about my ‘DISC’ personality, I can only say I’m looking forward to getting a better understanding of myself, a tool for life. This is what we will discuss next week on our event.
I stayed a bit longer after we closed tonight, such a nice office space.
A lot more events coming up so check our site out, FGL Store. We released a workshop with Lisa Burenius. I can tell you a bit more about that tomorrow.
