Understanding your point of view is a launching point to becoming more emotionally intelligent, thereby building better relationships. Guy Harris is part of the Kevin Eikenberry team as a coach and master trainer and co-author of From Bud to Boss. Prior to becoming a trainer and coach, Guy served as a Nuclear Engineering Officer in the U.S. Navy Submarine Force. What he came to discover was that all his technical training did not prepare him to deal with humans. People were more complex than submarines AND if he wanted to make a greater impact he needed to work with others. He joins Kevin, in part, to discuss team building, relationships, and personality testing. Tests, such as DISC, should be used as a tool to build self-awareness, which is a stepping stone to becoming a better leader.
In this episode, Guy discusses 1. What the DISC model is and is not. 2. How to use personality tests to become a better leader. 3. The meaning of benign intent.
