If you stay with your current game plan, the world will probably miss out on the best of what you have to offer.
The more research we did, the more we recognized that successful business leaders, top athletes, and innovative world-changers come from every walk of life and every type of circumstance. And yet, we saw countless people struggling—people who had the same skills and traits as those successful people.
We hated knowing that the misunderstood, overlooked, excluded, and rejected are most likely going to be doomed to a life half-lived. Even though they may have what it takes to succeed, they simply continue to knock on the wrong doors and trust the wrong guides, causing them to stay too long in unproductive academic pursuits, unsatisfying occupations and/or unhealthy relationships.
Imagine a world where you are discovered, seen, heard, included, respected, and valued for the best that is within you by the people and organizations that really matter most to your future success.
That’s a world that we didn’t want to exist just in our imagination—we wanted to make it a reality. Talent Depot is a place where it’s okay and safe to just be you. A place that helps you recognize and harness the strengths that you already have, and then use them to start achieving the hopes and dreams you have for yourself and your family.
And you won’t be doing it alone. Imagine if Jobs hadn’t met Woz, or Gates hadn’t met Ballmer, or Zuckerberg hadn’t met Sandberg. Talent Depot goes a step further, connecting you to great role models, guides, mentors, and organizations that help you grab the opportunities you deserve.

In 1928, William Marston (PhD - Harvard University, Psychology) published Emotions of Normal People, which elaborated on the DISC Theory.More than 50 million have reportedly taken the assessment since it was first introduced in 1972. Although William Marston contributed to the creation of the DISC Assessment, he did not create it. In 1956, Walter Clarke, an industrial psychologist, was able to accidentally construct the DISC assessment using William Marston’s theory of the DISC model. DISC is commonly used as a tool to get to know oneself, others and behavior in interpersonal situations better. Also, some companies use the assessment as a way to screen job applicants, lead or manage their teams.
1. The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) is promoting the use of DISC with coaches, administrators, and student-athletes to aid them in understanding their individual behavioral styles and preferences in relation to those with whom they conduct business. According to the NCAA this assessment provides an overview of individual behavioral styles and preferences, a common language when addressing these topics and methods to better relate to others. It also provides additional strategies to build more effective relationships within the workplace and athletic setting. Adoption of the assessment is in large part due to the number of studies performed like this one by Stacey Christy of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University that focuses on DISC assessment Impact on Communication and Understanding of Self and Team.
2. The College of Engineering at Texas A & M University has successfully used the DISC Instrument as a pedagogical tool for enhancing leadership training, and teaming skills, like cooperation and communication; and
3. DISC helps identify a team's strong and weak points, and thereby improves the quality of managerial decision making concerning the setting up and development of effective organizational teams (Suman,2009).
