The DISC Profile takes an in-depth look at one's predictable behaviors based on their DISC Personality Style. The DISC Profile identifies your Personality Style based on your levels of Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness. The DISC Profile covers the following areas of your personality and more:
However, when examining only one's behaviors, which are greatly impacted by one's current environment we are missing an opportunity to see the individual from a three-dimensional perspective of internal motivators and internal thinking styles, paired with outward behavior and interaction with others. This way we can understand what motivates someone and guides their decision making ability, then how those decisions have impacted their environment and behaviors, and how that contributes to a team environment in a positive or negative way. In order to gain this three-dimensional, well-rounded perspective of the individual, we suggest pairing the DISC Profile with two other behavioral assessments: the Thinking Style Behavioral Assessment and the Workplace Value Style Behavioral Assessment.
The Workplace Values Style Behavioral Assessment focuses on one's internal motivators. These are values we hold personally very important, which guide our decision making. The online Values Style behavioral assessment reports will list your primary and secondary most prominent internal motivator. There are four values styles, listed below:
The Thinking Style Behavioral Assessment focuses on two aspects. First, it outlines your primary and secondary thinking style. Second, it describes how that thinking style directly relates working in teams or groups with others. Our research indicates that the ideal team is composed with all 5 of the following thinking styles in order to be optimally effective. There are five thinking styles, listed below:
When using the three behavioral assessments in conjunction (The DISC Profile, The Thinking Style Behavioral Assessment, and The Values Style Behavioral Assessment), they allow you to see what drives a person to make the decisions they do, their innate tendencies in communication and DISC behavior, the way they think and their contribution to group environments. When understanding how these three areas relate to one another, you can truly gain insight into a person.
This course is most effective when having also taken the training courses or a certification course on the DISC Profile and the DISC Theory that is behind all our DISC related products.
