In This Episode

Are you more comfortable asking for permission or forgiveness?  Not sure?  Do you tend to just do what you think is right and deal with the consequences or do you try to get everyone else on board before doing stuff?

One isn’t better than the other in general, but in certain circumstances it’s better to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission.  We all have natural leanings one way or the other.  One of the tools we use in our business coaching is a behavior assessment called Extended DISC.  We find that D’s and I’s tend to be more forgiveness folks vs. S’s and C’s who tend to be more permission folks.  But it doesn’t have to always be that way!

During the show we shared a bunch of different scenarios where you might consciously or unconsciously making the choice to move down a path of forgiveness or permission.  A big part of this is the awareness.  The awareness of yourself as well as those around you.  The good news is that it’s a choice and we can all get better at it!
