DISC Behavioral Assessment Training

DISC BEHAVIORAL PROFILE ASSESSMENTS

DISC® is a behavioral assessment tool used by more than one million people every year to help improve teamwork, communication, and productivity in the workplace.

 

It is an acronym that stands for the four main personality profiles described in the DISC model: (D)ominance, (I)nfluence, (S)teadiness and (C)onscientiousness.

This assessment measures dimensions of your personality. DISC is not a measure of intelligence, aptitude, mental health, or values; however, DISC is a measure of your behavior based on the environment — for example, DISC can describe how you respond to challenges, how you influence others, your preferred pace, and how you respond to rules and procedures. It measures tendencies and preferences, or patterns of behavior, without judgment. DISC is a tool in support of improved dialogue between individuals and groups/teams.

DISC FOR INDIVIDUALS OR TEAMS

At its broadest, DISC measures four aspects of personality: dominance (D), influence (I), steadiness (S), and conscientiousness (C); These are the foundational traits based on the original DISC model created by Dr. Marston in the early 1900's. At Consulting Service Solutions inc., we are certified in the use of Target Training International's (TTI) Success Insights DISC Behavioral Assessment. We provide both individual and team assessment reports - typically a 27-page report breaking down multiple aspects of a person's (or team's) behavioral traits and tendencies along with guidance in how to apply best practices to enhance any future engagements. 

SUMMARY OF PROFILE STYLES

People with the DISC "D" style personality tend to place a strong emphasis on shaping the environment and overcoming opposition to accomplish results; they are motivated by winning, competition, and success. "D" styles prioritize taking action, accepting challenges, and achieving results and are often described as direct and demanding, strong-willed, driven, and determined. "D" styles also tend to be outspoken but can be rather skeptical and questioning of others.
