Understand People Better With DISC®

28 April 2022

Have you been looking for a tool that can help you better understand yourself and the people in your team? A tool that’s easy to read, easy to use, supports cooperation, and improves productivity and communication?

DISC is an assessment tool that can give you exactly that, plus it can drive efficiency in regard to leadership, recruitment and people development. How? The DISC model is based around four different personality types, providing a common language for people to use so they can better understand themselves and those they interact with.

The four primary personality profiles described by the DISC theory include:
Dominance: tend to be confident and place an emphasis on accomplishing bottom-line results.
Influence: tend to be more open and place an emphasis on relationships and influencing or persuading others.
Steadiness: tend to be dependable and place the emphasis on cooperation and sincerity.
Conscientiousness: tend to place the emphasis on quality, accuracy, expertise, and competency.

The use of DISC assessments in organisations have been seen to:
Raise self-awareness. DISC profiling provides insight into how you respond to conflict, what motivates you or stresses you out, and how you solve problems.
Improve teamwork. DISC profiling teaches you how to improve communication and understanding between team members.
Make conflict more productive. DISC profiling turns conflict into a positive and productive exercise that may help your organisation move forward in a more effective manner.
Manage more effectively. DISC profiling provides leaders with insight into the dispositions and preferred working styles of their employees and other team members, allowing them to become more naturally effective due to this deepened understanding.

How can you use DISC?
The DISC assessment tool provides you with individual reports which can be implemented as part of your recruitment process, when building a new team or when deciding how to best support your team. By having an understanding of the DISC model, the individual reports will provide valuable insight into how to motivate, better lead or support the development of individual team members. This report is also a great foundation for building leadership skills.

A pair report can also be produced to compare and balance two individual styles of operation, cooperation and communication.
You can also use a team report, which compares the individual styles in a larger perspective, shedding light on the overall diversity of the team, highlighting areas of improvement related to teamwork, motivation and communication.

This tool not only increases individual awareness, but it can also give you practical recommendations on how to approach and deal with all four personality types in a more targeted, efficient and perhaps compassionate way.
