DISC Personality Profiling
Used since the 1920's, DISC personality tool helps build non judgemental understanding of our behaviours.
We are all made up of patterns generally of four behaviours which impact on what motivates us and what we fear most and therefore avoid.
The assessment is used by over 1 million people every year to improve productivity, performance and communication.
DiSC profiles help you and your team:
Increase your self-knowledge: how you respond to conflict, what motivates you, what causes you stress, and how you solve problems
Improve working relationships by recognizing the communication needs of team members
Facilitate better teamwork and teach productive conflict
Develop stronger sales skills by identifying and responding to customer styles
Manage more effectively by understanding the dispositions and priorities of employees and team members
What is DISC?
The DISC quadrant
Applications of DISC
Dr William Marston first discussed the behavioural model of DISC and the quadrant in his book, Emotions of Normal People in 1928, he did not design the assessments, these have evolved over the years following his theory.
The assessments can be used in multiple ways, for individuals and teams.
Hiring the right candidate
Placement of assets (employees where they will be most productive/motivated)
Training for Sales
Improving team performance
Motivating staff and improving morale
The DISC assessment was developed in 1940, multiple versions exist now, and it is important to note that none of the personality assessments are mutually exclusive so DISC works well with others, and fine tuning your understanding of yourself and others can only benefit organisations.
We will identify through teh assessment a preference, there are 41 different potential styles, further impacted by environment, stress and other external factors. When you complete the assessment you must think of yourself in one role only, this becomes clear when you receive your feedback session/workshop session.
For the most part, there are no pure styles, but all people share these four styles in varying degrees of intensity represented by graphs with a mid-line. These composite styles are known as personality style blends, each with their own characteristics, preferences, fears, strengths and limitations.
Assessments are delivered online, reports emailed and feedback sessions can be undertaken either virtually or face to face. Group profiles are also available.
