Published in 5 skills

Rene has asked for a pay-rise on two previous occasions. She was now angry ,frustrated, and impatient. And then she realised that her boss was a high "C" in the disc profile and she was approaching him with her high "D" profile. So she figured out what to do and got her pay rise.

Watch the video to see how she did it.

This will help you understand your parenting style better.

A few weeks ago (17th May, you can see it here)I posted a blog on how you can do the DISC personality profile test (worth $250) for free. And below are some interpretations on how those scores relate to your parenting style and why some of that 'FLOW' in the home may not be working as well as you want.

I am a high 'S' and 'C' type whcih means I love stability, routine and attention to detail. No wonder I am good at setting boundaries and ensuring they are kept. My profile is also great at doing it the correct way the first time (great for getting cooperation and discipline).

But I'm a low 'I' which means I am more introverted and 'cool'. The children find me less approachable, and difficult to read. It now makes sense why I spend so much time on learning communication skills because I was never a natural. I had to learn all the tricks so I could get the results I need.

Here are my last 2 days of work on finding insights and material so you can interpet your own scores form the perspective of parenting and better understand why you parent the style you do, and how you can avoid some of the mistakes you didn't know the causes of.

Once you have taken your test, read how your type influences your parenting style here:Disc and parent styles

If you struggle to get your children to cooperate with you, or to take your boundaries seriously, it may be due to you both having different behavioural personality types.

You may be a parent who expects your boundaries to be met (you would therefore be a high "C" parent) but if your child is a high "I", they don't like consistency and hard fast rules. The outcome: a lot of stress, tension and misunderstanding.

But now imagine that you know which type you are, and which type they are, then you would now know which appropriate skills and techniques to use to get what you needed done.

Or what about your child's needs as a way of guidance from you?
•    High “D” children need challenge and dominance.
•    High “I” children need recognition and interaction.
•    High “S” children needs appreciation and service.
•    High “C” children needs quality answers and correctness.

Can you see that your way of interacting with them could now change with awareness and understanding of your different default styles? How much more empowered you can act knowing which style of parenting skills to use to impact your child respectfully and effectively?

 This Personal Strengths Profile, or Disc Index, is a modern interpretation of Dr. William Marston's behavioral dimensions. Marston's research uncovered four quadrants of behavior which help to understand a person's behavioral preferences. This Disc Index will help you understand your behavioral style and how to maximize your potential.

"Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength, mastering yourself is true power."
