An Overview OF EVERYTHING DISC®
The DiSC model provides a common language that people can use to better understand themselves and adapt their behaviors with others – within a work team, a sales relationship, a leadership position, or other relationships.
The Everything DiSC® Workplace assessment is a non-judgmental tool used to identify and explore behavioral differences among individuals.
The assessment asks users to rate the degree to which they agree with a series of statements about themselves and their behavior, then presents those results on a circular map to show where their personal preferences show up in relation to the other styles.
The preferences indicated on the assessment group participants into quadrants which form the acronym DiSC:
- Dominance: direct, driven, forceful, results-oriented, and strong willed
- influence: enthusiastic, outgoing, sociable, lively, and talkative
- Steadiness: patient, tactful, accommodating, calm, and even-tempered
- Conscientiousness: private, reserved, accurate, analytical, and logical
While every person is a blend of all four, certain preferences and tendencies show up more strongly in one or two styles. Each style has benefits and value. There is no perfect DiSC® style, nor are there good or bad behaviors.
Everything DiSC® is a way to understand yourself better—the first step to becoming more effective when working with others—and learn about those around you to understand their priorities and how they might differ from your own.
Not only does it help to increase self-awareness, it highlights differences and potential for misunderstandings while providing individuals with a way to communicate about those differences to increase effectiveness and productive work relationships.
The knowledge gained by the simple Everything DiSC Workplace® Assessment has been used by hundreds of thousands of people to drive better teamwork, collaboration, and productivity.
