Understanding your DISC® profile to improve leadership

Understanding your behaviours as a leader and individual is an empowering way to improve workplace productivity, communication and teamwork. The DiSC® model provides a common language that people can use to better understand themselves and others to be able to build more effective working relationships that are established on an understanding of their different needs, priorities and communication styles.

Having an objective and comprehensive insight into the personalities of others can give you the necessary edge when you are hiring, leading a team, establishing a team, negotiating a deal and building relationships with clients and stakeholders.

The DiSC® psychometric personality assessment can help you and your team:

  • Increase your self-knowledge in terms of how you respond to conflict, what motivates you, what causes you stress, and how you solve problems.
  • Improve your leadership skills and communication.
  • Improve working relationships by recognising the communication needs of team members.
  • Facilitate better teamwork.
  • Teach productive conflict.
  • Develop stronger sales skills by identifying and responding to customer styles.
  • Manage more effectively by understanding the dispositions and priorities of employees and team members.

The DiSC® profiling tool groups participants into four categories and provides a really powerful and insightful result for your leadership team and employees.
