DISC Behaviour and Communication Preference Assessments for Individuals and Teams
Providing the key to successful teamwork and communication
Would you like to help your clients to unlock the secret to effective communication?
DISC behaviour and communications preference assessments gives them the key.
The aim of the DISC behaviour and communication preferences assessment is not to profile, label or categorise anyone. We are all unique with our own skills and strengths.
What the DISC behaviour and communication preference assessment does is help people understand their own behavioural and communication preferences in the work environment.
Understanding behavioural styles and communication preferences can help people to become a better communicator, minimise or prevent conflict, appreciate the difference in others, and enable them to have a positive influence on people around them.
DISC Behaviour and Communication Preferences - An Overview
DISC is an acronym of the four different behavioural con communication styles that make up the DISC model. The four behaviours in the model are:
Dominant or driving
Influential or inspiring
Steady or stable
Conscientious or correct
These behaviour and communication styles manifest in different ways:
Someone who is assertive, to the point, forceful, direct, and strong-willed is displaying characteristics of the D style
Someone who is a great communicator, friendly to everyone, optimistic, and talkative is displaying characteristics of the I style
Someone who is steady, loyal, practical, a great team player, and a good listener is displaying characteristics of the S style
Someone who is factual, thorough, detail-oriented, sensitive, precise, and analytical is displaying characteristics of the C style
We all have a blend of these four styles and the intensity of the styles varies from individual to individual.
