Have you ever heard of a non-judgmental tool that is used in discussing the difference in people’s behaviour? If yes then the term DISC needs little or no introduction to you. If otherwise, pay attention to every detail of the article.
What is DISC?
DISC is a term majorly used in corporate boardrooms and it stands for Dominance’, ‘Influence’, ‘Steadiness’ and ‘Conscientiousness’. With the DISC profile, you are able to understand how humans react to different behaviours. DISC is also an effective decision-making tool in management because of its benefits across a range of different business functions.
It is also important to add that DISC is not a personality test but a measure of a person’s natural, hard-wired style of behaving. With DISC, you can become more successful in your personal and professional life.
The bottom line: DISC is an assessment tool that helps organisations, individuals and teams to become better by giving easy information on how behaviours can be modified.
The DISC profile is developed from the answers gotten from the DISC test questions. The result gotten from the DISC assessment is what is tailored to your unique preference and need. In Disc profiling, you are not forced to choose any off-shelf report.
The assessments are custom made for different niches, jobs and industry with the most relevant information needed by the employee. The assessment can be tailored for content colours, logos, pictures. Pages, lengths, order etc. so as to provide the most user friendly and most applicable assessment.
After completing the DISC assessment, the result is provided with the aim of modifying behaviours.
