Personality Assessments – DISC 

 

Organisations are made up of individuals, each of whom is unique. Gender, age, experience, skills, aptitudes, upbringing and so on. They each have strengths, limitations, motivational needs and have their own individual preference as to how they wish to be treated.

 

Seek to understand and be understood

 

If we can understand ourselves more, then we can enhance the way that we interact with those around us.

The DISC Personality Assessment helps us to decode the language of behaviour, the way we interact with one another and within groups.  What does DISC mean? It is an acronym made up of the first letter of each of the main personality traits.

 

  • D    = Dominance
  • I      = Influence
  • S    = Steadiness
  • C    = Compliance.

 

In less than 20 minutes the assessment provides an accurate insight into how you behave at work, answering questions such as: what are your strengths and limitations? How do you communicate? What motivates you? How can you enhance your value in the work place?

 

DISC – what it means  –  have a look at how it works here.

 

How does it work?

 

Research has shown that behavioural characteristics can be grouped together in four major areas called personality styles or traits. People with similar personality profiles tend to exhibit specific behavioural characteristics common to that profile.

Knowing who you are, what motivates you and almost as important, what demotivates you, is the foundation of a successful and fulfilled life. It means you can play to your strengths and work around your limitations.

Once you know how you would like to be treated, it gets even better.  Once you have a full grasp of your own self-image, you can then start to discern how others might think, act and feel.

After years of research we have concluded that the best determinant of personality traits or styles is the DISC personality assessment.

 

What do I need to do?

 

It is a simple online personality test comprising 28 questions. It takes less than 20 minutes to complete.

Our DISC personality assessment gives you the means to motivate, stimulate and encourage people in your organisation by raising people’s self-awareness, self-esteem and confidence.

 

What are the benefits of assessing personality or temperament?

 

Here are the key benefits:

  • Makes a good team great by building mutual understanding
  • Increases motivation as each person is treated uniquely
  • Improves communication and trust
  • Becomes a powerful force for change
  • Turns around underperforming teams
  • Enhances personal and team courage – breaks down the blame culture

 

Does it show ‘good’ and ‘bad’ qualities?

 

No. It provides an understanding of how a person prefers to behave at work and the characteristics they will demonstrate. There are no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ answers or ‘good’ or ‘bad’ qualities.
