Mary Miscisin, MS
Mary began her study of human nature as the second oldest in a family of 10 children. She learned the importance of effective communication and the significance of appreciating different personality types.
Mary’s extensive background in health and wellness education includes her Bachelor of Science degree in Commercial Corporate Fitness, and her Interdisciplinary Masters of Science degree in Fitness and Wellness Management with combined concentrations in psychology, communication and health education. She spent several years as a university instructor and then went on to facilitate employee health and wellness programs over 20 years.
Throughout her career, Mary observed first-hand how negativity, personality clashes, and contrasting communication styles can be at the root of many workplace challenges…and interestingly… the origin of most highly litigated workers compensation claims. Ultimately, further national research backed her findings and the connection between comp claims and what she endearingly calls the “I don’t want to be here” syndrome.
By integrating the concepts of Cognitive Psychology, Personality Theory and personal experience, Mary has designed powerful programs which address the underlying challenges of work and home life.
Mary is the author of, SHOWING OUR TRUE COLORS- A Fun, Easy Guide for Understanding and Appreciating Yourself and Others, used for relationship-building and problem-solving by organizations as far-ranging as the U.S. Armed Forces to Disneyland!
As the host of the PBS special “Get Curious, Not Furious – Communicating Your True Colors” Mary brought an awareness of how to apply the truly colorful concepts of personality styles to improve communication. It aired on Public Television stations across the U.S. and Canada for several years.
As times have changed, she recently updated her book Showing Our True Colors to reach a wider audience of type enthusiasts. The revised version is aptly titled: Personality Lingo – Use the Power of Personality to Transform Relationships, Improve Communication, and Reduce Stress.
