ActionCOACH Utilises DISC to help improve Businesses 

Do you know what you are like to work for or with? and more importantly do you know this for every one of your team members? Is the way you respond to a challenge, the “actual” challenge?

As the world’s most popular behavioural assessment tool DISC offers a simple, practical, easy to remember and universally applicable model. It provides insight into four primary behavioural tendencies and emotions. It explores how these come together in a personal blend of style to create your very own DISC style.

There are four distinct types of people, one will tackle the challenge head on, one will ask for help, one may fight against it, and one may just accept it.

These are examples of the possible responses to life, circumstances and opportunities that people have. If you or your team are not achieving what you set out to achieve, the issue may be a combination of these responses.

Each personality type above has its own beneficial characteristics and challenges. To quote Phil Jackson, “The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.” By utilising DISC in your company, you can create the best team and get the best results from that team. It can be used in a multitude of ways including your hiring process.

People generally make the mistake of assuming that others interact and think the same way they do, and many of us grew up believing in The Golden Rule: treating others the way you would like to be treated. Instead, we encourage another practical rule to live by – what Dr. Tony Alessandra calls The Platinum Rule®: to treat others the way THEY want to be treated.

DISC is NOT: a measure of intelligence, skills, education or experience, or an indicator of values.
