Jaggedness: The Key to Finding & Unleashing Your UniquenessToo often we focus only on our DISC “high” indicators when our DISC “low” can be equally as important and valuable.

This is based on a collaborative white paper between Indigo Education Company and Dr. Todd Rose, founder of the Laboratory for the Science of Individuality at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Avoiding Critical Mistakes By Benchmarking With Proven ScienceOne of the greatest gifts we can give anyone is to help them know their talents and put them in the right role where they “Do what they do naturally.” The next best gift is helping them develop those talents to excel and become the best version of themselves they can be. Benchmarking allows us to have an objective target as to what behavior, driving forces and key talents are required for superior performances.
