This is the first in the "Be The Good, See the Good" Series.  

We will dive in to how the uniqueness in each of us strengthens all of us, and learn how we can work in our strengths and recognize that in others.

"What we don’t need in the midst of our struggle is shame for being human."  -Brené Brown

Don’t wait until you’re perfect to help another.  This is where we can connect and relate and realize that we’re human - and that’s a beautiful thing. 

If you want to connect with another, meet them where they are at.  Don’t expect them to jump to your perspective just because that’s the way you see it. 

When you take into account each child’s personality style, your ability to connect in a way that resonates with them is so much easier. 

There are many variations of what "Namaste" really means, but the essence is "the peace within my soul recognizes the peace within yours." Wouldn’t it be nice if Americans greeted one another in such a meaningful way?

When people understand their personality style and lean into their own natural strengths, amazing results occur, and they begin to better understand their children at a deeper level.

The DISC we will be discussing is the four quadrant behavioral model based on the work of William Moulton Marston, Ph.D. (1893-1947) which he developed to examine the behavior of individuals in their environment or within a specific situation. DISC looks at an individuals’ behavioral styles and behavioral preferences. This is not to label people or put them in a category but rather to build a bridge to understanding strengths, needs, motivations and ultimately improved relationship.

Understanding DISC gives us a vocabulary to explain and relate to one another.

It does not give us an excuse or a label for a behavior.

Every person has a vantage point you can only experience through your connection with them. 

Like a rainbow that has seven key colors, there are thousands of other shades of those seven, and they all are a blend of more than one color. These other factors, plus the four personality styles, are all going to blend to create your unique color that will be represented somewhere on the spectrum.

You don’t necessarily have a weakness as much as you have a negative reaction with one of your strengths.
