The DiSC profile includes four components, devised by psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston as a tool to measure behavioural styles. It is a personal assessment tool used by individuals to analyse their behavioural patterns and how they could influence their overall personality at work and at different levels in the career ladder.
It helps manage productivity, stress and other behavioural patterns to be assessed based on few traits of individuals. It helps an individual understand his/her own motivations better, what level of stress is constructive for them, what are the conflict resolution styles and problem solving techniques that fit well. It also helps one understand the behavioural patterns of those whom we deal with in business world in day to day life.
This is an assessment we carry out on a regular basis and is a part of our recruitment process. It is the world’s best behavioural profiling tool, analysing an individual’s personal/internal (Natural) and workplace internal (Adaptive) styles.
