Marsha Goldford, MPA, CHRP

Wisdom Group

Topic: Start with Self-Awareness

This month’s topic is a fun and engaging exploration below the surface of each of our own individual iceberg.  It’s a journey of self-awareness – knowing what makes you tick, how you best communicate and relate to those around you, and discovering the same for others.

The session takes a look at EQ – Emotional Intelligence – in the context of each person’s individual DISC profile. The DISC profile is a non-judgmental tool, based on Jungian theory, used for discussion of people’s behavioral differences. 

 In order to get the most out of this month’s session, each participant is asked to complete a free, online DISC assessment, save and bring your results to the meeting.  The 123test DISC personality test determines your personality profile based on the four DISC types – dominance, influence, steadiness and compliance.  Take the free DISC test at https://www.123test.com/disc-personality-test/

Self-awareness is key to understanding how you relate to and are perceived by others.  It gives you insights into aspects of yourself that can’t necessarily be learned and aren’t readily apparent to others, and helps you to become more effective in your everyday interactions in both your personal and professional life.

Marsha is a certified DiSC Facilitator and Coach through Wiley International.
