Your workforce is made up of diverse and distinct personalities. A competent manager recognizes these differences in each employee and doesn’t take a one-size-fits-all approach. DISC is a behavior assessment tool that measures four different behavioral or work styles: dominance, influence, submission, and compliance. With each of the four behavioral styles, there is a different way to communicate and delegate tasks, compliment, correct, motivate and coach each employee.
D is for Dominance - People with the D style place an emphasis on shaping the environment by overcoming opposition to accomplish results.
I is for Influence - People with the I style place an emphasis on shaping the environment by influencing or persuading others.
S is for Steadiness - People with the S style place an emphasis on cooperating with others within existing circumstances to carry out the task.
C is for Conscientiousness - People with the C style place an emphasis on working conscientiously within existing circumstances to ensure quality and accuracy.
