The DISC is one of the leading assessments to help people learn to communicate better in the workplace and in relationships. In Part 1 last week we broke down what the letters stand for, and how we can learn to self identify our natural tendencies in conflict, pacing, processes, interpersonal relationships and decision making.

In Part 2 this week we’re looking at how the types interact and what potential sticking points may surface because of our style. We also discuss each type in leadership positions and what the potential strengths and pitfalls may be as they lead.

Join us as we interview DISC coach Krista Gilbert on how to be more self aware and insightful about the way you work with others in any arena.

DiSC® is a personal assessment tool used by more than one million people every year to help improve teamwork, communication, and productivity, especially in the workplace, though there are also tremendous personal benefits when using the DISC.

DISC provides a common language people can use to better understand themselves and those they interact with—and then use this knowledge to reduce conflict and improve working relationships.

In this episode DISC coach, Krista Gilbert, shares about the four D-I-S-C types: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance or Conscientiousness. We dive into why t’s so important for leaders to be self aware and how they can use this insight to better relate to those around them.

Life is changing. What we used to be responsible for, may no longer be in our charge. Whether it's work-related, a parenting dynamic, or caring for parents who used to care for us, when our purpose shifts we may start to wonder who we even are anymore.

Enter Rachel Joy to the conversation. As someone who coaches women on their identity and purpose, Rachel gives us some practical ways to think about changing "assignments" throughout life. Our identity, who God says we are, does not change, but our purpose - or assignment of what we're in charge of - might. We cover grief when things change when we don't want them to, transitions as times when old lies might resurface, and the importance of trusted friends to challenge wrong thinking and celebrate our victories.

If you are in a season of shift, we encourage you to remember who God is. And if you aren't really sure, this is a great time to seek him out. His love for you defines you. No matter your boundaries and allotments - your larger purpose is to walk this life with him.
