behavioural profiling

​DiSC® is an acronym for the four primary dimensions of behaviour:

Dominance – direct, results-oriented, strong-willed and forceful.
Influence – outgoing, enthusiastic, optimistic and lively.
Steadiness – even-tempered, accommodating, patient and humble.
Conscientiousness – analytical, reserved, precise and systematic.

​Because DiSC profiles describe behavioural style, 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 is appropriate, however, for an organisation to ask people to adapt their behaviour to become more effective in the work environment.

In particular, 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.

The most recent DiSC profiles from Inscape Publishing Inc. are application specific. These tools don’t just provide the individual with an understanding of their own behavioural style. Their profile gives them specific application strategies for improving communication, relationships, and results with others of different styles. Here is a summary of the profiles:
