Whether they’re playing in a league like the UFF, on a club team, in the NFL, or even just recreationally, football players can learn a lot from DISC personality analysis.
Boardman, Ohio (PRWEB) December 31, 2014
In football, player morale and relationships have a significant impact on team performance. In an interview scheduled to air on January 23 at 6:45pm on UFF Game Talk http://www.blogtalkradio.com/uffofamerica, PeopleKeys’ Josh Levoff will discuss the ways in which DISC, a popular method of personality testing and behavioral analysis, can be used to strengthen football teams both on and off the field. In the interview, Levoff will share DISC strategies for handling interpersonal conflict, building strong team relationships, and boosting player morale.
When asked what else listeners could expect from the interview, Levoff said he plans to show how DISC can be used to understand the connection between personality type and player behavior. Levoff said, “Great coaches know that the personality of players should affect how they are managed. Whether it’s an interpersonal conflict, an injury, a training regimen, or issues tied to game-day performance, all of these things are experienced differently by players with different personality types. It’s difficult to effectively manage a team if you don’t understand the dynamics between personality, communication, and performance.”
DISC is a method of personality testing that was created by Harvard-educated Dr. William Marston in the late 1920s. With DISC, individuals take a brief personality test and receive a personality profile that graphs their personality according how strongly it exhibits four major personality styles: dominant “D,” influential “I,” steady “S,” and conscientious “C.” Each style exhibits shared patterns of behavior, demonstrates common talents and shortcomings, and interacts with other personality types in predictable ways. DISC is frequently used around the world by organizations looking to find strategies to improve performance, identify individual strengths, prevent conflict, build strong teams, and increase morale. More and more frequently, DISC is being used by coaches and team managers looking to find a competitive edge.
“Whether they’re playing in a league like the UFF, on a club team, in the NFL, or even just recreationally, football players can learn a lot from DISC personality analysis,” Levoff explained. “The better the relationships are on a team, the higher morale will be. That leads to a team that’s more motivated and cohesive. Again, DISC can be a great help here. As a player, you may not have control over the mix of personalities on a team, but when you understand basic patterns of human behavior, you have the ability to control how you handle conflicts, interact with teammates, and make a place for yourself as an essential member of the team. DISC gives you a tactical advantage, on and off the field. You can even learn to read other people’s personalities, and get a sense of what to expect from their behavior. This can be enormously helpful when it comes to game day.”
UFF Game Talk, the program airing Levoff’s interview, is hosted by Molly Hill and Alice Mary Herden.
