All people share these four styles in varying degrees of intensity. The acronym DISC stands for the four distinct personality styles represented by the letters:
Decision- Makers, Direct in Communication, Risk- Takers, Competitive, Goal & Results-Oriented, Innovative, Challenges the Status Quo
Outgoing, Welcoming, Enthusiastic, Optimistic, Impulsive, Persuasive, Emotional, Encourager of Others, Creative Problem Solver, Influential
Stable, Reliable, Values Safety & Security, Sympathetic to Others, Team Player, Non-Confrontational, Peacemaker, Loyal, Patient, Consistent
Accurate, Conscientious, Systematic, Organised, Analytical, Fact-Finder, Even-Tempered, Methodical, Thorough, High-Standards
Knowledge of the DISC system empowers you to understand yourself, your team members, co-workers, and managers - often in a profound way. Understanding behavioural styles enables better leadership and communication. It helps to minimise and prevent conflict as well as enhancing teamwork, influence and motivation through an understanding and appreciation of the differences in others.
The DISC system provides companies with an effective tool to fully develop the talent that already exists with current personnel, increase productivity, enhance teamwork and cooperation and ultimately increase your bottom line.
