What is DiSC?
DiSC is one of the most widely used measures of behaviour in the workplace. It is particularly useful in situations where you want people to have a better understanding of their behaviour and how it may impact on their relationships with others.
DiSC is an acronym for the four primary dimensions of behaviour:
|Dominance||direct, results-oriented, strong-willed and foreceful|
|Influence||outgoing, enthusiastic, optimistic and lively|
|Steadiness||even-tempered, accommodating, patient and humble|
|Conscientious||analytical, reserved, precise and systematic|
We all have some of the four behavioural tendencies.
Because DiSC profiles describe behavioural style, they are ideal tools for the work environment. While measuring a person’s personality type can be helpful, we can’t really ask that person to change their personality. It is appropriate, however, for an organisation to ask people to adapt their behaviour to become more effective in the work environment.
How can DiSC be used?
Managers and leaders become more adaptable when they understand the impact of their behaviour on the work environment, and the impact that environment has on employee engagement, commitment and productivity. They learn to adapt the way they communicate and relate to the different motivational needs of the people they work with.
Sales and customer service staff learn to build stronger relationships with customers when they understand the different needs their customers have and adapt the way they relate to them.
Teams become more effective when they can recognise the strengths of different styles as well as learn to adapt the way they communicate with different team members.
