“Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.” – Chinese Proverb⠀
In this month's post, I'd love for you to join me on an adventure, exploring the DiSC Personality Model for kids!
But wait, what is DiSC?⠀
DiSC is the best-selling, non-judgmental personality and behavioural assessment used by more than one million people every year to improve teamwork, communication, and productivity… And at HappiMe, we share it with our young people to help them with very similar challenges!
Why is DiSC just a powerful for children to learn?
…Because DiSC gives them the power of understanding themselves and others, helping them to communicate more confidently, build rapport and improve their emotional intelligence skills.⠀
So, what does it stand for?
D – Dominant or Driver – Leader, blunt, driven, loud, work and goal-focused.
I – Influencer – Friendly, loud, outgoing, talker rather than listener, people-focused.
S – Steady – Quiet, supportive, listener rather than talker, loyal, people-focused.
C – Controlled or Conscientious – Detail-oriented, blunt, quiet, perfectionist, work and goal-focused.
We are often a combination of all 4 profiles, but generally there are 1 or 2 primary/secondary profiles that are obviously much stronger. If someone is a clear D and I combination, but their D traits are more prominent, we might call them a “high D/I profile”…⠀
What are HappiMe’s DiSC Personality Profile animals?⠀
Here are HappiMe’s cheeky DiSC animals, great for teaching under-8s about this fab method…⠀
D or 🦁 - The passionate lion is the leader. Someone who is generally goal-focused.⠀
I or 🦓 - The friendly zebra is the motivator. Someone who is generally people-focused.⠀
S or 🐼 – The steady panda is the loyal listener. Someone who is also people-focused.⠀
C or 🦉 – The wise owl is master of detail. Someone who is generally work-focused.
As I said earlier, we are often a combination of all 4 profiles, but generally, there are 1 or 2 profiles that are obviously much stronger. With the HappiMe animal model, that would simply change to a focus on the primary animal profile.
