DISC is an assessment tool used to improve productivity, team work and communication. DISC stands for Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Consciousness. The DISC profiles usually appear on a wheel whose sections are the 4 components. Each component has its own characteristics and two contiguous sections share some characteristics
DISC measures communication and behaviour styles. It is NOT an IQ test. It does NOT measure intellect, skills, mental health, values, etc. DISC profiles describe human behaviours in various situations, such as response to stress, to challenges, to crisis, to procedures, etc.
By knowing well your own profile and the ones of your au-dience, you can communicate in a more efficient way, both written and spoken. It helps to efficiently distribute tasks ac-cording to their types, objectives, needs, restraints, etc. It also helps to form a team by choosing the members according to the context.
The Dominant is full of energy, focused on action and always on the move. Naturally positive and fact driven, sometimes aggressive, he is extroverted, tenacious and can focus on the results to achieve. He addresses others in a direct and authoritarian way.
