Why Do We Do What We Do?

Understanding people’s behavioural styles

disc 4 typesBusinesses around the world are adopting the language of DiSC to help them make improvements to individual, team and organisational performance, all of which will have a direct impact on the bottom line.

DiSC is an assessment methodology that has been used by over 50 million people worldwide to improve work productivity, teamwork, and communication.

DiSC is a non-judgmental, easy to learn methodology and language that helps people understand their personal preferences and work better together. It gives them a language to discuss their differences and allows individuals to minimise their weaknesses and play to their strengths. It also identifies what motivates an individual and what stresses them.

What is DiSC?

DiSC is a model of human behaviour that helps people understand “Why they do what they do!” DiSC behavioural profiles are used to identify an individual’s style of behaviour by understanding their underlying thinking patterns and how this impacts on their behaviour.

These four aspects and their characteristics are:

  • Dominance – goal orientated, independent and forceful
  • Influence - outgoing, optimistic and friendly
  • Steadiness – patient, humble and even-tempered
  • Conscientiousness – precise, details and systematic

Each individual is a unique blend of all four, but will probably have 1 or 2 stronger aspects of behaviour.

  • Increase their awareness of individual behavioural styles
