DISC Behavioural Framework

DISC is one of the world’s most widely used assessment tools across industries and teams in all Fortune 500 companies and beyond.  The DISC theory of psychologist William Moulton Marston, centres on four different behavioural traits: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientious. This theory was then developed into a behavioural assessment tool by industrial psychologist Walter Vernon Clarke. The DISC assessment has been used by more than 50 million people since it was first introduced in 1972.

People generally make the mistake of assuming that others interact and think the same way they do.  When in fact we get more out of the relationship if we communicate how they want to be treated.  Particularly in the corporate environment where we are having to work with a variety of individuals on a daily basis on a number of different projects.
The DISC framework, often known as the colours-based framework, helps to understand styles within a systematic, predictable framework, even though individual personality is unique. This DISC assessment helps to identify how a person’s behavioural patterns influence:
  1. What that person wants, needs, and expects from you and others
  2. How that person communicates those wants, needs, and expectations
  3. Provides clarity on how to adapt to people in a way that will reduce tension and increase collaboration and trust in all types of relationships

DISC is a simple, practical, easy to remember and universally applicable model.  DISC is needs-motivated, observable behaviour and emotion; it is a combination of nature (inherent) and nurture (learned).
