The DISC Assessment is a behavioral profile or assessment. It measures observable behavior and emotion; how we prefer to act and communicate (or behavioral style). The DISC Assessment does not measure or tell you your personality type. Instead, it shows how your personality responds to the environment. For example, it reveals how you tend to behave under stress, in conflict, when communicating, and when avoiding certain activities.
The three main objectives of the DISC Assessment are:
- Determine/recognize and value your own DISC behavioral style.
- Determine/recognize and value the DISC behavioral style of others.
- Become proficient in adapting your behaviors to create better performance.
A solid assessment must have the following: affordable, short, simple, easy-to-remember, immediate & practical applications of actionable recommendations (e.g., understanding of self, others, and the situation, and adapting to others in a manner that will reduce tension and increase trust and collaboration in all types of relationships).
