When you compare that to the amount of time spent on other activities, such as eating, sleeping, leisure activities and caring for others, we spend more of our time during the week with our co-workers than with our families.
Understanding the array of personalities found in a work environment has proven to be a successful tool for not only creating happier workplaces, but also for decreasing the number of personality-related misunderstandings. A more positive environment has also been linked to higher productivity.
One tool that helps companies teach their employees to recognize different personalities within an environment or specific situation is a DiSC® Profile. Based on the work of Dr. William Moulton Marston, DiSC Profiles are self-assessments used to create a profile of each worker’s personality, and includes information about the worker’s priorities, strengths, communication style, and reliability strategies with others, to name a few.

- Laser pointer
- QuikDiSC Card Deck, color-coded cards which teach attendees the D, i, S, and C behavioral dimensions.
