DISC too restrictive for modern life

This book is written so you don't have to read/listen to the entire thing, just listen to what is relevant to you as a leader at the moment. It is an older method from the mid twenty-first century.

The problem is this. I took the assessment and listened to my sections. I found that they could not place me neatly on the continuum of the DISC circle. The first part of the description was correct, while the last part was completely off. I recommend "Now Discover Your Strengths" instead which allows for a greater spectrum of human tendencies.

Good info. A little lengthy

Good info. A little long. Hard to remember earlier leadership dimensions as the book moved forward.
Could have used some look backs as the author moved forward and a summary at the end.
