075: Understand Personality to Connect with Others

Do you ever have conflicts with people who don’t think or act like you? This episode is for you. My guest Merrick Rosenberg has studied personality differences for the past 25 years and knows a thing or two about this topic! Merrick created a unique model for teaching the DiSC behavior styles that’s easy to remember and apply. We had a great conversation about recognizing another person’s personality preferences and adapting your approach to reduce conflict and enhance communication.

You’ll discover:

  • Why Merrick replaced DiSC with the names of four birds
  • The difference between “behavior style” and “personality.”
  • How to recognize a person’s personality even if you just met them
  • Ways to adapt your approach or presentation to address all four styles
