Do people drive you crazy? A great and wise sage once said, “Everyone driving slower than you is an idiot. Everyone driving faster than you is a maniac.” Okay, it wasn’t a world renowned philosopher, it was George Carlin.
Each of us naturally believes that my way of doing things is the right way. And of course, this makes sense. The proof is right there before me. If I do something and it works, then shouldn’t you do it the same way? If it works for me, it will work for you. The logic looks good on paper, but when it comes to human behavior, we need a new rule book.
Perhaps, we could say, if it works for me, it may work for you if your behavioral style is similar to mine. If, however, you have a different DISC style than I do, you may wish to utilize your own method or process. If we truly respect and honor each individual’s way of approaching problems, projects, or just their day-to-day work, we can let go of judgment and stop imposing our way of dong things (or our DISC style) upon them.
And maybe, just maybe, we won’t be so frustrated along the way.
