WHAT IS DiSC®?
The DiSC® Model of human behavior is used to help describe a person's behavior and explain why we act as we do in various situations. Understanding the DiSC Model and our own DiSC style enhances our self-insight and increases our opportunities of functioning well with others. Enhanced self-insight also leads to enhanced insight in others. Rather than judging a person we do not understand, we can learn how to better deal with that person.
Dominance: describes people who are driven and forceful. They usually have strong opinions about how things should be done and are direct, if not blunt, with those opinions. They often describe themselves as aggressive, strong-willed and demanding.
influence: describes people who are enthusiastic and high-spirited. They are quick to seek out new social opportunities and are generally very talkative. This style combines a high level of energy with a strong positive disposition
Steadiness: describes people who are gentle and accommodating. They are very considerate of other people's needs and show a great deal of patience. They work to create an environment around them that is stable and harmonious.
Conscientiousness: describes people who are analytical and reserved. They place a high value on accuracy and take a systematic approach to their work. Emotional displays are kept to a minimum, as they place a strong emphasis on logic and reason.
Every day, organizations use DiSC to establish a common language, paving the way for successful training and coaching applications. Detailed, personalized information helps people apply DiSC learning to specific business situations, including sales, leadership development, customer service and conflict resolution.
