What will the DISC assessment tell me?

DISC measures observable behavior and emotions. It will tell you HOW you take action, communicate, and behave in most circumstances. DISC will not measure your intelligence, values, education, etc.

Is the DISC assessment accurate?

Validity studies show the accuracy of the DISC Assessments. I have been using the assessments for over 11 years and I can tell you most people find their report to be 90-95% accurate. Although the report claims to be only 85% accurate – because human beings are complex creatures that cannot be encapsulated by one report – most people find their reports scarily accurate!

How will DISC assessments benefit my organization?

Most organizations are looking for results. Results come from the right people taking the right actions. Behavioral analysis helps you identify the right people.
In any situation or environment where understanding people better would be beneficial, DISC can help. Specifically, our clients use it for:

  • Hiring the right people
  • Performance Development
  • Team Building
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Career Planning/Succession
  • Coaching

Can DISC be used for hiring?

Absolutely! Some instructors of DISC tell you it can’t be used in hiring because it isn’t predictive in nature. We have a different philosophy. In our experience, you can predict how a certain style will behave in everyday, normal environments. That is why our clients tell us it’s like having a crystal ball. (Of course, human beings are complex and can surprise you – especially in unusual circumstances.)

The Department of Labor indicates that pre-employment assessments should be 1/3 or less of the hiring decision, and we completely agree with that. However, our assessments show a side to the applicant that cannot be determined through interviews, resumes, background checks, etc.

We would not claim our assessments guarantee success of an applicant, however, we can ensure clients are making the most informed decisions about their new hires.

Is there one style that is better than the others?

Yes. My style. Just kidding! No one set of behavioral types is superior to the others. They all have value and they all produce results in their own way. Success comes from people being in the right environment/job for their style.

Back to Top

Is DISC a psychological tool?

No. DISC only measures observable behavior and emotions. It cannot tell us if someone is emotionally or psychologically healthy or unhealthy. That being said, with a DISC Assessment, the disparity between the Natural and Adapted graphs have been shown to indicate the amount of stress a person may be feeling. How that person deals with stress though is as unique as the person’s behavioral style. Some people deal with stress well and for others it’s debilitating.

How can DISC assessments be used other than for hiring?

In any situation or environment where understanding people better would be beneficial, DISC can help. We have clients applying DISC in:

  • Performance Development
  • Team Building
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Career Planning/Succession
  • Coaching
