DISC Profile Australia
Why use DISC?
DISC is known across the world to help teams and individuals improve performance.
Many of us have used some form of diagnostic tool for development purposes during our careers. You may have done many and are therefore a bit ‘over it’, however the benefits of DISC are far more valuable than most other tools, primarily because it will help you improve your current teams’ performance at this point, right now.
DISC helps eliminate much of the needless mystery, misunderstanding, and conflict that stop teams from working effectively together.
Managers and leaders become more adaptable when they understand the impact of their behaviour on the work environment, and the impact that environment has on employee engagement, commitment and productivity. They learn to adapt the way they communicate and relate to the different motivational needs of the people they work with.
Knowing one’s DISC style is helpful in understanding natural behavioural tendencies and how to meet individual needs. But when building relationships with others – something we all have to do – knowing how to adapt behaviour to improve relationships with other people improves communication and creates win/win solutions.
There’s no right or wrong profile. Because DISC profiles describe behavioural styles, they are ideal tools for the work environment. While measuring a person’s personality type can be helpful, we can’t really ask that person to change their personality. It’s appropriate, however, for an organisation to ask people to adapt their behaviour to become more effective in the work environment.
We all have a primary DISC style, yet we’re all capable of, and at times display, aspects of the other styles. Having the knowledge to practice those behaviours to be more adaptable when it’s appropriate to do so can be a great asset for your current team.
DISC profiling provides a framework for helping people build better relationships with others, learn about their strengths and weaknesses, and ultimately use that information to become more productive.
