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. Where our style and motivators are the most extreme is what is jagged about us. This jaggedness is what is unique and where we have the ability to access your intrinsic genius. 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.

Employers Prefer Soft Skills Over Technical Skills… Why?Employers spend all their time and money on technical training — because it’s easy to administer and because that’s the way they were initially trained. As an employer, you know that a positive can-do attitude, integrity, and being accountable are so important, but is it really your responsibility to train your employees for this? ABSOLUTELY! As employers, we get the best 8 hours of our employee’s day. Making them better human beings not only makes a lasting impression with them, it will lead to loyal, trustworthy, employees that will make your company great.

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.
