DiSC Behavioral Assessment designed to promote more effective business relationships
Everything DiSC Management OR Everything DiSC Workplace Assessments
Why do some teams perform better than others? Answer: relationship management – understanding why others – team members, colleagues and bosses – do the things they do is critical to working and performing together. To learn about the priorities and preferences of others is to learn what motivates them. Also, recognizing the tendencies that individuals utilize to achieve their outcomes is a advantageous piece of intel that leads us to be more effecient and effective. Understanding these elements can be utilized to broaden the scope of our successful outcomes – to include those of the organization. The result is a more successful individual and organization.
Your team is comprised of people who have various priorities and modes of operations – some might require more independence, some might love details, some might be great listeners, others might despise details, or possess a distaste for leading and would prefer to just be part of the team, additionally, others might prefer getting to the point, some would rather focus on results and taking action, and still, others might prefer and have greater appreciation for the social aspect. Have we just described your team?
There are tools available to the manager to assist them in recognizing these differences. And after recognizing the differences, the manager can learn to respond to each of the differences with greater skill and success. The instrument that accomplishes this is the Everything DiSC Management Assessment. The goal is to create a more productive environment in which team members are inspired and productive, morale soars and retention is increased.

The Workplace DiSC (the most requested instrument of the DiSC family and broadly used across all layers of the workforce)
Assessment Description: What if people (your clients, team members, vendors or family members) had their needs written all over them and that you were able to recognize that one person needed more independence, while another the need to participate more with others? What if you could tell if someone was driven by results, or perhaps another by challenge? Maybe their need is to more collaborative. Or perhaps it is accuracy and the details that do it for you.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could recognize the needs and priorities of those around us and respond accordingly? In addition to improved communication with colleagues, this skill could also benefit individuals in working with their clients. Simply stated, the DiSC helps participants to further their relationships with others in a more productive and mutually beneficial way.
Specifically, the DiSC helps individuals at all levels to
Ø Understand their own styles and behavior.
Ø Learn of their colleague’s styles – strengths and motivators
Ø Learn how and when to adapt behavior to work with, and, manage others.
Ø Improve communication.
Ø Enhance individual and team performance.
Ø Promote appreciation of differences.
In addition to the Workplace and Management profiles we can provide Comparison Reports that are available to any two persons who have participated in either the DiSC Management Profile or Everything DiSC Workplace.
Everything DiSC® Comparison Reports are reports that can be created for any two participants to illustrate their similarities and differences. The research-validated Comparison Report helps to build better relationships and makes training stick.
Comparison Report: Each person gets their own individualized worksheet, but he/she will also get their colleagues information designed and presented in a manner to improve their communication and working relationship. The DiSC Comparison report addresses how “Alex and Grace” might discover, personalize and apply their differences and similarities to work more effectively.

DiSC® has a long history, continually evolving to become more reliable and more applicable for the user. The initial theoretical work was completed in the 1920s so as you can see, this is not the lastest management fad, it has a long proven history, although it is the latest “must-have” employee assessment tool.
The DiSC Model of Behavior was first proposed by William Mouton Marston, a physiological psychologist with a Ph.D. from Harvard. His 1928 book, Emotions of Normal People, explains his theory on how normal human emotions lead to behavioral differences among groups of people and how a person’s behavior might change over time. His work focused on directly observable and measurable psychological phenomena. He was interested in using practical explanations to help people understand and manage their experiences and relationships.
Marston theorized that the behavioral expression of emotions could be categorized into four primary types, stemming from the person’s perceptions of self in relationship to his or her environment. These four types were labeled by Marston as Dominance (D), Inducement (I), Submission (S), and Compliance (C).
