Maybe the ‘DISC test’ sounds familiar to you, or maybe you’ve never heard about it. Whatever the case is, I would really like to tell you taking this test can completely change your life and even make you a better entrepreneur!
The DISC test is a personality test that helps you understand yourself and your environment better. It helps you understand how you’re wired, what’s most important to you, and how you deal with certain situations.
I learned this myself many years ago in a 1-on-1 coaching session in which my coach talked to me about DISC, about what drives you and the people in your environment and what doesn’t. It helped me more than an entire year in university!
Although there are a limited number of possible outcomes, it’s important that we don’t use this test to put people in boxes, because that’s not what it’s about. It’s a tool that can help you understand where someone else is coming from in a conversation or an argument, what happens when you are under stress and how to work better with your clients, team and family.
For me, the biggest breakthrough was understanding that my mom and I are very different and that we need different things from each other. It has also helped me understand what happens when my team is stressed out and how to approach situations with different people.
You probably didn’t know this, but it helped me create the layout of my Business Freedom Elevator™ as well! We used the 4 main characteristics of the DISC test to determine what different kinds of sessions and modules we wanted to offer.
