“DISC assessments improve team communication and behavior.”

What are DISC assessments?

DISC personality assessment wheel for individual and team behavior and communication at workDISC assessments measure how all human beings behave and communicate across 4 profile types: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Compliance.

DISC assessments are online, self-administered, psychometric questionnaires that include: 1) a personalized DISC profile report debrief with a certified DISC analyst and 2) an action plan for improving communication at work.

Because DISC focuses on observable behavior, DISC assessments provide us with a common language for unique DISC types that we use to communicate with our teammates.

Since 1984, DISC continues to be the world’s #1 behavior and communication profile assessment for leaders, management, and teams. DISC personality tests are taken by millions of employees every year and used by 75% of Fortune 500 companies.

The key benefits of using DISC assessments at work.

We’re often asked, “What are the key benefits of using DISC assessments at work?” After a DISC assessment, the benefits on overall team performance are immediate, positive, and measurable. Specifically, the key benefits of using DISC assessments for leaders, managers, and teams at work are:

  • Self-awareness
  • Team communication
  • Collaboration
  • Employee engagement

How do DISC assessments sustain their contribution to meaningful change?

After a DISC assessment, each person receives their their DISC profile report. DISC profiles are our unique personality-at-work fingerprint. We guide and coach each person through their extensive DISC profile results, and together we create an action plan to move forward. We review their strengths, growing edges for improvement, communication style preferences, potential time wasters, value to the team, and so much more.

As a result of the DISC profile assessment process, individuals come together as a team by building stronger, more productive relationships at work.

Self-awareness rises > team performance improves > cultures thrive > organizations succeed.
