9781576751336: I'm Stuck, You're Stuck: Breakthrough to Better Work Relationships and Results by Discovering your DiSC Behavioral Style

Often when people feel stuck, they try to change something about themselves. Authors Ritchey and Axelrod suggest that instead they should learn to see situations in new ways and create new options for relating to others. That process begins with DiSC, an assessment tool that reveals one's style of interaction. DiSC is an acronym for the four styles -- Dominance (direct and decisive), Influence (optimistic and outgoing), Supportive (sympathetic and cooperative), and Conscientious (concerned and correct). This book teaches readers how to recognize their style and its implications, how to read the styles of others, and how to choose the most effective style (or combination of styles) for any situation.

About the Author:

Tom Ritchey has been a teacher, school principal, personnel director, sale and marketing executive, and, for the past ten years, President of Inscape Publishing. Tom combines his practical management experience and his deep knowledge of the behavioral sciences to create effective and memorable learning tools and events for diverse audiences. Alan Axelrod is the author of numerous business, communication, and management books, including the bestsellers Patton on Leadership and Elizabeth I C.E.O.

From Booklist:

Behaviors, as many industrial psychologists have emphasized for years, are infinitely easier to change than attitudes and personalities. What Ritchey recommends is the adoption of DiSC, an easy-to-administer (and diagnose) guide that, first, defines four distinct behaviors, and combinations as well, and then portrays a variety of situations and best-case reactions. It's all based on psychologist William Marston's 1920s research, which the author has refined for everyday work environments. Recognizing these four styles--dominance, influence, supportiveness, conscientiousness--is relatively easy. Ritchey details these topics for both pure and mixed behaviors: for instance, what motivates you, what discourages you, what is your favorite environment, what do you avoid, areas of misunderstanding, information to share, what to watch out for, getting unstuck, and your bottom line. No personality changes here but, rather, the ultimate in "knowing thyself" and subsequent adaptations. Barbara Jacobs
