  • Self-awareness and DiSC

    I wanted to say a few things about Harvard Business Review’s recent article, “Research: We’re Not Very Self-Aware, Especially at Work.” I was struck by this sentence: “It’s no secret that many of the most popular developmental assessments used for gaining self-knowledge, such as the MBTI, DiSC, The Birkman Method, and The Core Values Index, woefully lack evidence linking their […]

  • Inclusive leaders (and Everything DiSC)

    Inclusive leaders tend to create collaborative and understanding environments. You're likely to see them as soft-spoken, patient, good listeners, aware of the needs and talents of those they work with. However, you might think they are afraid of change or underestimate their critical thinking skills. If you're an inclusive leader you might notice that you have a desire to surround yourself with the familiar, to internalize problems, and to have a strong need for harmony. You probably didn't become a leader to gain status.
  • Activities for Work of Leaders trainings

    We know that Everything DiSC Work of Leaders is being added to several leadership development programs that already exist. But one of the great things about Everything DiSC products is that they don't have to be used only by professional trainers.

  • Affirming leaders (and Everything DiSC)

    As would be expected from the DiSC leadership label for this type, they tend to be positive, supportive, and approachable. You're likely to see them as easy-going and cheerful, warm and sincere, and easy to talk to. You might also notice their distaste for conflict and complex analysis.

  • Using DiSC for hiring

    I’m a C. Would that make me a better candidate for an accounting job than an S? It’s obviously not enough information to make that kind of decision. And I can tell you I’d be a mediocre accountant—at best. Even though I love charts and being right, I have no interest in that field and no proficiency at it. It’s […]
  • Everything DiSC, Inscape Publishing and Wiley

    Every so often we run across online discussions about DISC and it’s easy to tell that the referenced assessment is not the one published by Wiley. (We have written before about the various flavors of DISC.) Many more publishers of personality tests can be easily found online. Does the publisher really matter? What makes DiSC® special? Why is the assessment […]

  • Using DiSC in health care or medical settings

    Dental offices are frequent buyers of DiSC profiles, at least by our sales numbers. They use DiSC to create a better working environment. Often everyone in the office will discover their profile and new employees will be asked to take the assessment. It makes it easier for the new employee to learn the relationship ropes and be able to focus […]
