Everything DiSC® Profiles can be an ideal tool if you want to “Know Thyself”

Many great philosophers have encouraged us to better know and understand ourselves. And there’s no tool like Everything DiSC® Profiles to help you do just that.

We heard it from Socrates when he said “Know Thyself.”  And from Shakespeare we heard “This above all, to thine own self be true.  The Tao Te Ching tells us “Knowing others is intelligence, knowing yourself is true wisdom.

Knowing yourself is at the heart of Emotional Intelligence (EQ), a concept popularized by Daniel Goleman in his book by that title.  He said there are four components of Emotional Intelligence.

                • Self-Awareness
                • Social Awareness
                • Self-Management
                • Relationship Management

Knowing yourself means having a capacity for understanding your emotions, displaying self-confidence, and having an accurate self-assessment of your strengths and weaknesses.  It becomes apparent that Self-Awareness must precede Social Awareness, Self-Management, and Relationship Management.

In his book; Working with Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman wrote, “Emotional intelligence is the capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, for managing emotions well in ourselves, and our relationships.” He added, “We are being judged by a new yardstick; not just how smart we are or by our training and expertise, but also how well we handle ourselves and each other.”

Warren Bennis, a leading expert on the topic of leadership said, “Emotional intelligence, more than any other asset, more than IQ or technical expertise, is the most important overall success factor.”
