DISC Behavioral Styles
DISC is a behavioral assessment tool used to improve work productivity, teamwork and communication. DISC is non-judgmental and helps people discuss their behavioral preferences and differences. It is a culturally valid, universal language that is behavior-based, so it can be observed. The four DISC tendencies are:
Dominance: How you respond to problems and challenges.
Influence: How you influence others to your point of view.
Steadiness: How you respond to the pace of the environment.
Compliance: How you respond to the rules/procedures set by others.
The Faciliation Center uses these profiles to help clients:
- Build teams and improve communication
- Increase self knowledge: how you respond to conflict, what motivates you, what causes you stress, and how you solve problems
- Learn how to adapt your own style to get along better with others
- Foster constructive and creative group interactions
- Facilitate better teamwork and minimize team conflict
- Manage more effectively by understanding the behaviors of employees and team members
This service can be included with your facilitation package or can be a dedicated workshop. Participants answer a series of questions and a detailed report is produced based on the responses. Team reports are also available. The reports provide insights into behaviors, characteristics, ideal environments, pace or work, and communicating with others.
