Publisher Comments:

Taking Flight! is packed with life-changing insights about you and everyone you know. You’ll never look at people quite the same way again.”

--Marshall Goldsmith, Author of What Got You Here Won’t Get You There

Taking Flight! reveals profound hidden patterns of human behavioral style, offers a blueprint for deeper self-awareness, helps you maximize your own personal strengths, and shows how to connect with and influence others more powerfully than ever before.

Team performance and personality style experts Merrick Rosenberg and Daniel Silvert introduce the proven DISC model of human behavior and show how it can make you more effective as a leader, team member, teacher, salesperson, and in all your personal relationships.

Other books on DISC are dry and academic… not this one! Rosenberg and Silvert present DISC through a fable that’s quick, fun, and incredibly easy to understand. Once you get it, you’ll learn how to apply it…building on what you already do well to supercharge your own personal performance!

When you understand what makes individuals tick, you can interact with them far more effectively.

• Use the 4 DISC styles to “read” people like a book

• Master the 7 transformative DISC Principles

• Understand your own style and find roles where you’ll shine

• Become a better team leader, coach, mentor, teacher, and parent

• Reveal hidden potential in relationships where you’ve struggled

• Build and implement your DISC Action Plan for success

• Embrace your personal style and your natural gifts, maximize your strengths and minimize your weaknesses!

Synopsis:

Use DISC to discover profound hidden patterns of human behavioral style, gain deeper self-awareness, maximize your personal strengths, and influence others more powerfully than ever before! Taking Flight  illuminates the proven DISC four-style model of human behavior, and shows how to use it to become a far more effective leader, salesperson, or teacher; revitalize your career; build deeper personal relationships; fully leverage your natural gifts, and empower everyone around you. Drawing on their immense experience coaching executives and training world-class organizations, Merrick Rosenberg and Daniel Silvert introduce DISC through a fable that's quick, fun, and easy-to-understand. You'll discover why you "click" with some people and "clank" with others, and what really drives your decisions and actions. You'll learn exactly how to identify others' behavioral styles and choose the best ways to interact with them. You'll walk through creating a personal action plan for improvement — and then systematically making the most of your strengths, working around your weaknesses, and supercharging your personal performance! If you're already familiar with DISC, this book will help you use it more effectively than ever before. If you're new to DISC, it will change your life — just as it has for thousands before you!
