Since Mother’s Day has recently passed, we want to talk about parenting for this month’s DISC Insight. Naturally, a parent wants their children to be happy, healthy, and safe, but since parenting comes with no clear set of rules, how do we set about accomplishing this? It has much to do with what we choose to incorporate from our own parents, our values systems, our support systems, and our situations in life. But also, our personality style and natural tendencies in communication. To go one step further, our children are people too, so they also have personality styles, specific needs and fears, and natural tendencies in communication. By understanding our own styles and those of our children, we can increase communication, anticipate insecurities, and avoid some very predictable conflicts. Below is a very brief breakdown based on primary DISC styles.

On April 25th, Administrative Professional’s Day, we thought it only appropriate to talk about support. “Support” is defined as holding up, serving as a foundation, sustaining, and maintaining. The support people of the world are the ones maintaining and sustaining a lot of the systems and the relationships. This can be applied to the support staff of a company or the family member who holds the group together, creating a strong foundation. Of course it’s the visionaries and the charmers who shine in the public eye or who stand out in a group most often, but today it is the diligent, reliable, and patient supporters who we recognize for all that they do.

Sometimes it is difficult to recognize when love and affection are being shown to you by others, mainly when their style of showing and receiving love is different from your own. A D-Style may launch into action, solving problems and spending their time working hard to provide for their loved ones. However, if their S-Style partner is longing for quality time, they may feel neglected as a result. By understanding how both you and your partner show and receive love, you can begin to recognize gestures of love that you had never noticed before.
