What is DISC?

Research suggests that the most successful people are those who take time to understand themselves. The TTI Success Insights DISC assessment is a computerised behavioural assessment, trusted by millions across the world, that measures preferred behavioural styles across four distinct domains:

  • 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 rules and procedures set by others

Each behavioural style is scored on a scale of 0 – 100 generating a unique report that offers insights into; general characteristics, preferred style of communicating, ideal environment, perceptions of self and others, and keys to motivation. There are no right or wrong behaviours, but certain behavioural traits may well be better suited to certain types of roles than others.

Individual DISC reports provide comparisons between natural and adapted styles of behaviour which can assist in understanding the extent to which an individual is adjusting their behaviour to fit in with their understanding of what is expected of them within their role. This in turn can offer insight into the level of pressure a person may be experiencing, and the reasons why, creating the opportunity to explore any relevant support needs.

When is DISC Helpful?

  • For leaders who want to develop a better understanding of their own behavioural style in order to target any particular areas that are inhibiting their performance
  • As a tool for line managers who want to improve their understanding of direct reports in order to facilitate more tailored support and encouragement in their role
  • For teams where individuals are struggling to work together effectively and who would benefit from better understanding individual behavioural styles
  • When new ways of working require a change of culture or behavior that will require staff to adjust to different ways of behaving in the workplace
  • When staff are confronted with the possibility of redundancy and want to better understand their skill set in order to target the most likely opportunities
  • For project leaders who need to put together a team of people with complimentary behavioural preferences
  • When a new role requires a particular skill set that may not be revealed through a generic recruitment process alone

What are the benefits of DISC?

  • Greater awareness of individual strengths and challenges within the work environment
  • Personalised action plan targeting areas that are most likely to enhance performance
  • Better understanding and tolerance of individual preferences between team members
  • More objective discussion between managers and direct reports regarding performance in the role and possible support options
  • Improved performance against personal and team targets
  • Increased likelihood of recruiting the right candidate into key positions
