What is Everything DiSC®️?
DISC is a self-assessment tool that helps you to understand why you, and others, behave in the way that you do in the workplace. The four dimensions - Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientiousness - describe the typical behavioural styles of individuals.
A range of highly personalised reports provide insights into your own style, the priorities that drive your behaviour and a practical set of tips to help you interact and communicate more effectively.
DiSC reports are used by individuals and teams throughout the world to help people develop their skills and capabilities, and to drive cultural change. In addition to the general Workplace report, the application suite includes tailored versions for those in leadership, management or sales roles. Combined with a facilitated workshop, groups and teams can benefit from the collective insight and start to work more effectively together.
Background to DiSC
The DISC model is based on the work of American psychologist William Moulton Marston and has been used extensively for over 40 years. The evolution of his work led to the creation of the DiSC® assessment. This original assessment is easily recognised by the small 'i' - a trademark of John Wiley & Sons, of whom we are proud to be an Authorised Partner.
Everything DiSC® offers end-to-end learning experiences that have immediate and lasting impact on the performance of people and the cultures of organisations.
The Assessment: Powered by 40+ years of research, each Everything DiSC® personality assessment combines adaptive testing and sophisticated algorithms to deliver precise insights to each participant. These insights lay the groundwork for a personalised experience rich with “A-ha!” moments that inspire behaviour change.
The Profile: The personalised content in the profile deepens self-understanding through the DiSC® model. People gain insight into their own preferences and tendencies, learn more about relating to others, and receive actionable strategies to help them improve their interactions and ultimately, their performance.
The Classroom: The profile comes to life in a classroom experience that engages and educates. Easy-to-use facilitation tools, including scripted content, contemporary video, and impactful activities can be customised to meet the specific needs of your people and your organisation.
The Follow-Up Tools: A suite of follow-up resources makes lasting behaviour change possible by keeping Everything DiSC alive in the workplace. Participants can go deeper into their DiSC style, get real-world tips for connecting with colleagues, and gain insight into their team’s or department’s DiSC culture.
The reliability and validity of the tool are extensively researched and documented and the full research report is available for download. The assessment is built on a foundation of research and rigour. Everything DiSC provides a trustworthy assessment with strong psychometric properties, and prioritises quality by using computer adaptive testing, global norming, and real-world testing.
