The survey materials will show both productive aspects of each of the four styles, as well as counterproductive aspects. Take the DISC Survey online using the instructions found in the Week One Assignments page. Then, complete the following assignment that is due in the Dropbox by the end of Week Two of the session. YOUR ASSIGNMENT: Write a 3 to no more than 5 page double-spaced paper [be sure to use subheadings to identify each section] in which you use the results of your DISC Survey.

Describe your personal styles (25 points) Describe your strongest style(s) and your weakest style. Provide examples to illustrate how the strong styles characterize you (or, in the case of your weakest style, do not characterize you).
