Behaviour is an expression of your Personality

There is a distinct difference between personality and behaviour, both in and out of the workplace. However, these concepts often get misconstrued. Understanding the difference is hugely helpful and also gives us the opportunity to increase our engagement with others in teams.
Personality is the essence of who we are.

It's a stable set of characteristics and tendencies that influence our beliefs, values, and attitudes.

These elements are relatively consistent over time and across situations, forming the bedrock of our identity.

Imagine personality as the deep currents of the ocean—powerful, persistent, but often unseen, shaping the landscape beneath the surface of the water.

Behaviour, on the other hand, is the manifestation of this personality in real-world scenarios.

It's how we act and react to the
situations and people around us.

Behaviour can be seen as the waves on the ocean’s surface, influenced by the currents below (personality) but also by the wind and weather above (external factors).

This means that even though our actions are based on who we are, they can also be changed to fit the situation
and what’s expected from us.

In a nutshell: Behaviour is an expression of your Personality.

But you have a choice on what that behaviour looks like and adapt regardless of the situation.

The contrast between personality and behaviour is crucial in both personal and professional contexts.

Understanding this distinction allows us to recognise that, while we may have natural inclinations, our actions in any given time are choices.

This realisation is empowering because it means we have the ability to change our behaviours to be more successful, compassionate,
and goal-oriented, even if our fundamental personality traits stay consistent.

Welcome to DISC Flow, a tool that shows this distinction through behaviour.

DISC Flow has practical applications for understanding and managing relationships.

According to the DISC theory, behaviours fall into four
categories: dominance, influence, steadiness, and compliance.

Discovering our
behavioural patterns helps us understand how we behave, how we communicate, and
why we do what we do.

DISC Flow links personality with behaviour.

It encourages introspection and self-awareness, which are essential for personal and leadership development, by providing a clear framework for analysing our behavioural patterns.

It helps people recognise their own strengths and shortcomings, as well as how their style interacts with others, resulting in better teamwork and collaboration.

DISC Flow is also very useful for managing behaviours to make relationships work better.

By learning to recognise our own behavioural styles and knowing others', we can change how we talk to and interact with others. Being able to change is important for clearing up confusion, settling arguments, and making relationships stronger. Leaders and teams can change the mindset of the workplace by being able to handle these situations with empathy and purpose. This can lead to more engagement, productivity, and mutual respect.

Ultimately, understandingpersonality and behaviour well leads to growth and achievement. 

Like paintbrushes, our actions shape our lives as they evolve. The surface of personality is rich and complex.

The tools and techniques we need to learn this art from DISC Flow lead to more mindful
leadership and healthier relationships.

 As we deal with other people, let's keep in mind that how we
act is not just a mirror of who we are; it's also a choice we make every moment.

With tools like DISC Flow, we can make smart decisions, making sure that our actions are in line with our highest goals and making connections that make everyone better.

It was excellent to learn about this tool and how to apply
it with coaching clients and with groups of people. I enjoyed the step by step
approach and the self paced learning which was all very logical and I could go
back over anything I needed to revise. I also liked having the resources to
read before watching the videos, which enforced the learning.
