Is 'Surviving Your Serengeti' the Next DISC Profile?

Is "Surviving Your Serengeti" the new DISC profiling system for the 22nd Century?  

I don't know, but I'm hoping so!


disc (sxc-Till Achinger) You remember DISC.  Invented in the 1920's, the DISC Personality System is called the universal language of behavior. According to the DISC, people share styles in varying degrees of intensity.  Drive, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance. The acronym DISC stands for the four personality styles represented by these letters.

I like the idea of  taking clues to our personality styles from Africa's Serengeti.   I like feeling a link to this ecosystem, one of the oldest on earth. 

The Serengeti's essential features of climate, vegetation and fauna have barely changed in the past million years.  That couldn't be further from today's real estate reality, where change is daily occurrence.

African Asphalt (sxc-Stephan Fuchs) And the patterns of life, death, adaptation and migration in the Serengeti are as old as the land itself.  But in our reality of daily change, the ability to embrace change in our Serengeti is key to our survival.   

The first two chapters of the book "Surviving Your Serengeti" have me looking forward to learning more about the strengths and weaknesses of the animals of the Serengeti and of myself, the Enterprising Crocodile.

Just as the DISC system taught me the strengths and weaknesses of my personality, "Surviving Your Serengeti" promises to bring that personality profile into the 22nd Century and give me another tool to adapt and prosper in MY ever changing Serengeti.

Find out about ActiveRain's "Surviving Your Serengeti".  This is an opportunity to take advantage of ActiveRain's efforts to increase our individual efforts to be effective real estate professionals.

Take the Serengeti quiz, find out how you will survive your own Serengeti!  

Then remember, use the information you can from the other animals...for we are the animals on earth more able to change and augment our survival skills!

Laura...downloaded and ready...don't know what animal I want to be, but it you're a croc then i guess it is ok for me. Kinda' hoping that a less aggressive animal with better looking teeth might be available--but then perhaps those are the ones who 'back down' and 'play meek' That is SO NOT me.  Did not realize that this was a February 18th original post, don't know how I missed it [unless the Flu-days caused it] Either way, you posted & I am glad.
Have a great rest of the week.

Hi Laura, great job with this post.  I ended up buying the book so I get to read the whole thing now.  I seem to be a Giraffe...I guess I'm ok with that.
