What is Everything DiSC®?
Everything DiSC® is one of the most trusted behavioural profiling instruments in the industry, used by millions of training and coaching professionals across the globe. The tool identifies behavioural style by measuring the attributes, preferences and aspects of the respondent’s personality.
Real World Coaching use this tool to help business owners fast track their understanding of themselves, whilst enabling them to build successful teams, develop effective working relationships, and increase the leadership, management and sales performance of their teams and their business.
The foundation of DiSC® was first described by William Moulton Marston in his 1928 book, Emotions of Normal People. Marston identified what he called four “primary emotions” and associated behavioural responses, which today we know as Dominance (D), Influence (i), Steadiness (S), and Conscientiousness (C).
Since Marston’s time, many instruments have been developed to measure these attributes. The Everything DiSC® assessment uses the circle, or circumplex, as illustrated above, as an intuitive way to represent this model.
Although all points around the circle are equally meaningful and interpretable, the DiSC model discusses four specific reference points.
Dominance: direct, strong-willed, and forceful
Influence: sociable, talkative, and lively
Steadiness: gentle, accommodating, and soft-hearted
Conscientiousness: private, analytical, and logical
Using Everything DiSC® will:
- Help you to better understand your behaviour and how to meet your own individual needs
- Help you to adapt your behaviour by identifying strategies to improve workplace effectiveness
- Provide a common language to help business owners understand their teams and work better together
- Improve communication and engagement
- Improve diversity and creativity
- Reduce conflicts and avoids misunderstandings
- Increase individual and business wide performance
Dominance - Influence - Steadiness – Consciousness.
Everyone is a blend of 4 styles and has a unique behavioural style. An individual’s DiSC® style is shown by a ‘dot ‘which is placed on the model in the report.
DiSC® styles do not identify abilities or strengths. There is no right or wrong /pass or fail. A style demonstrates priorities or behavioural style.
These are some examples of the profiles that we use at Real World Coaching:
