DISC behavior models assessment for better communication and motivation
People are Different. Take a DISC assessment to:
- Understand what natural tendencies are
- What strengths that you can build on
- Identify natural tendencies that may be holding you back
- Understand what people you are similar to
- Understand how you are different to other people
DISC will identify what motivates different people.
Why DISC is a good behavior model:
The DISC model is not the only behavior model but we like DISC because:
- DISC has been validated repeatedly,
- DISC has elegant simplicity and
- DISC theory converts easily into practical applications
Why is DISC important in business?
Business requires you to be effective with all types of people even if you do not have a compatible DISC style.
- DISC differences can manifest into flawed communications, dysfunctional relationships and conflict.
- A business that successfully uses the strengths of the different types will be much more successful than a mono-culture.
- Each behavior type has some tendencies which can be detrimental to business if they are not properly managed.
Why is DISC important to managers?
Managing employees requires that you communicate and motivate different types of people. A management technique that works for one person will not necessarily work for another. A DISC mismatch between a manager and employee usually causes conflict, dysfunctional relationships and miscommunications.
- DISC will identify employee strengths
- DISC will identify negative tendencies to manage
- DISC will identify how to best motivate your employees
Bonus - putting DISC into practice for better communications
Behavior models are incredibly informative. But they become useful when they are put into practice. Therefore I am currently bundling the DISC101 Introduction to DISC. with the DISC assessment. This module is DISC for everyone: which is about using DISC in everyday life for better communications and relationships
Signs that DISC can make your management more effective and motivational:
- Employees not “listening” to your communications
- Employees failing to act in the way you want them to
- Low employee motivation, and productivity
- You not adapting your management and communication style to the person
- Miscommunications – employees misinterpreting your communications
- Frequent conflict especially if these do not end up being resolved
