  1. I believe the DISC is a nice way to bring self awareness, however, when it dictates everything about who I am to others, in a report that I’m now bound to the description of behaviors…. its taking things a bit too far (bosses with no psychological training are now experts about my personality ??). Then they want to talk to me like I need to be spoken to (according to my DISC) comes across very strange and manipulative. Unlike just having a normal conversation and working through the various differences of opinion. Bottom line, its a starting point, self awareness and understanding of our differences. Situations change and so do behaviors. Just my take. Thank you
