DiSC Helps Families Communicate

My own story is one of affiliating with Carlson Learning Company, now Inscape Publishing, in September of 1978 in the first network certification as a single mother with two children. When Dr. John Geier asked us to stand up and introduce ourselves, I stood up and said, "Hi, I am Sandy Karn, I have two children, Todd and Tammy and this is the best opportunity I have seen in the 7 years I have been in the personal and professional development business." Then I sat down.

The fact is, if I had not had the DiSC information to use in raising my children, our communications would have never been as good as they were. Communications are not always perfect, but with the right tools, you can make them better and more effective.

DiSC became a language in our home and it helped a lot. When Tammy wanted to tell me all the details of her day, I was able to tell her that when I tucked her in that night, I would listen to all the High C stuff for as long as it took because all those details were important to her. She understood what I meant and was not put off by the delay. 

As a single parent with my circumstances, I did not want to work for someone else and leave my children. So, I created a way that I could do all my marketing over the phone and I could make my own schedule according to their needs most of the time. I was able to build my business and be a stay-at-home mom. 

My story has a happy ending. My kids are doing great and I am too right along with them. I count my many blessings every day.
