Build Better Relationships by Understanding Personality Types with Merrick Rosenberg

Episode Summary

There is no denying that understanding various personality types helps reduce and resolve drama in the workplace, and any areas of life for that matter. Understanding how others are wired gives us major clues on how to interact with them and leads to empathy instead of frustration during times of conflict. With there being so many different personality quizzes out there, it can become overwhelming to know which ones to pay attention to, but the DISC framework is very easy to understand, and widely used in the workplace. Today’s guest found a way to make these personality types even more interactive by bringing them to life and teaching others how to better communicate and foster an engaging culture. Merrick Rosenberg reinvented how people learn about themselves through the power of personality. He is the CEO of Take Flight Learning and author of five books about the Eagle, Parrot, Dove, and Owl styles, which you will learn about today. Merrick has worked with more than half of the Fortune 100 companies in the U.S. and around the world. Under Merrick’s leadership as CEO of Take Flight Learning, his company has been selected as the New Jersey Business of the Year by NJ Biz Magazine and has repeatedly been named as one of the Fastest Growing Companies and Best Places to Work in the Philadelphia area by the Philadelphia Business Journal. In this episode, Merrick explains the idea of the “platinum rule”, which is to treat others how they want to be treated, instead of how you want to be treated. This idea is crucial because not everyone engages the same way, and learning to communicate with others based on their personality helps us to better get our message across and reduce conflict. This idea isn’t just applicable for leaders, but is also a very important concept for relationships in general whether it’s with a partner or our kids. Merrick shares very exciting news about an upcoming project he has been working on, and you don’t want to miss this one.
