What are Personality Styles?
Every person has distinctive characteristics and qualities, which influence their thinking, preferences and behaviour. The DISC Personality System is a tool that aims to help individuals increase in effectiveness as they identify and capitalise on strengths, whilst recognising potential limitations and blind spots.
DISC is a four-quadrant behavioural model based on the work of William Moulton Marston Ph.D. (1893 – 1947) to examine the behaviour of individuals in their environment or within a specific situation. The acronym DISC stands for the four personality styles represented by the letters: Dominant, Influencing, Steady, Compliant.

Positive and Productive Team Working
The Personality Profiling System enables you to understand why others behave in a particular way. When there is a lack of understanding, we tend to misunderstand comments and actions. Understanding other styles allows you to communicate in a more constructive manner by modifying your behaviour to appeal to styles which are different from yours.
Enhanced Communication & Feedback
Profiling helps resolve potential problems by highlighting an individual’s preferred communication style. Once you are aware of an individual’s preferred style, you can adapt your own communication mode. This technique will ensure the desired outcome is achieved though minimising misinterpretation.
Personal Management & Development
People excel and shine in job roles that are a good match for their skills and natural behaviour style. The personality style profile can identify and highlight management and leadership qualities, detail-oriented and organisational skills, natural sales ability, personal service and team-player tendencies.

DISC is the universal language of behaviour and emotions. The organisation can have a common language of open communication between colleagues, family members and friends, highlighting the strengths and value that each bring to the team/relationship.
