Organizations all desire to achieve high-level efficiencies, optimal productivity, reach established goals, maintain cohesiveness among team members, and receive high customer experience ratings. The DiSC® profile is a tool in obtaining these outcomes. On an individual level, by understanding one’s profile, he/she can work more productively. In peer-to-peer interactions, team members can relate more effectively. Understanding employee profiles can assist leaders in drawing out the best in their teams and thereby serve their customers well.
The DiSC® profile has been around for decades. In 1940, William Moulton Marston developed the first DISC® personality profile, and this version is still used today! Today’s electronic version is quick and comprehensive, both in completing the profile and getting the results.
The profile looks at four categories: D-dominance, I-Influence, S-Steadiness, C-Conscientiousness. All styles are of equal value, and everyone is a blend of all four.
The user completes a series of questions (usually about 15-20 minutes). The results provide the user with valuable information to know more about his/her particular style and how to operate more effectively in the work environment.
Positive results can be anticipated when implementing the DiSC® in the workplace. Employees have an opportunity to increase their skills and apply what they have learned to work better together and achieve the desired outcomes. The profile does not assess skills, talents, or aptitudes but rather how we express ourselves, connect with others, and exhibit behaviors in the workplace. For example, one organizational leader stated she now knows how to interpret a coworker’s behavior differently, which had led to misunderstandings and hurt feelings in the past.
