The same reason if you were going on a first date with someone and all you had was a picture of them. Yes, it can tell you a lot, but if you were to make a decision on whether you wanted to date that person solely on a snapshot of them, wouldn’t you be considered a little shallow?
If you really wanted to get to know that person or have a relationship with them, wouldn’t you want to know more about them…their passions, their history, what they liked or disliked, even their habits or tendencies…there is just so much more to a person than the part that can easily be observed!
DISC is much the same as that photo, but provides the behavioral snapshot to developing relationships and teams that can accomplish great goals together within just about any setting people are interacting or working together. Same is true in building a stronger family unit, or even a more comprehensive learning environment for a student.
DISC will help you build the best sales team you could possibly have, and you can start retaining good people because you understand more and will know how to show an interest in each and every person, as well as their unique qualities they bring to the table.That’s why we have now introduced a report giving you a four-dimensional view of those you are working with, hiring, training, or just interacting with on a regular basis.
Why settle for a snapshot when you can get the complete full four dimensional view with depth?
In practice it brings the already detailed two dimensional DISC report into living color in four dimensions.
We combine the DISC Personality Style, TEAMS, Workplace VALUES, and the Behavioral Attitudes Index (BAI), in doing this we can assess 4 different dimensions of personality, behavior, thought processes, and motivators.
The Four Dimensions of Personality Report Includes:
This DISC based personality profile defines an individual’s predictable behaviors, their communication styles, preferences for specific environments and tasks, decision making processes, leadership abilities, organizational skills, and other observable and predictable behaviors.The profile incorporates an overview of each individual’s strengths and areas for improvement and comes with a goal setting worksheet aimed at their personal improvement. Understand and identify the Dominant, Inspiring, Steady, and Conscientious personality styles.
Gain insight into the individual thinking styles and strengths and limitations of a group within a specific environment. Discover which of your group members are skilled at thinking like a Theorist, Executor, Analyst, Manager or Strategist. A well balanced team that places people in positions where they can utilize their strengths creates a more effective and less stressful work environment.
While DISC profiles determine what an individual’s needs-driven motivations are, the Values Profile identifies a person’s values-driven motivations. These are the deeply ingrained automatic responses to different scenarios. These values are Loyalty, Equality, Personal Freedom, and Justice. These values based motivators are not necessarily something that a person will be aware of, but these are the internal values that a person is willing to fight for.
BAI- The Behavioral Attitudes Index
This assess the hidden passions, interests, and motivations for a person within a particular setting. Behavioral attitudes correspond with the emotions and thinking processes that subconsciously shape every decision an individual makes. The BAI assesses which of the
I-SPEAK behavioral attitudes are predominant. These align with whether or not a person is willing to expend energy toward Inner Awareness/Spiritual, Economic/Tangible, Artistic/Innovative, Power/Political, Social/Humanitarian, and Knowledge/Proficiency endeavors. When a person’s behavioral attitudes are aligned with their environment, their natural motivation, passion and interests are in harmony- creating contentment and longevity in a position.
