DiSC is an online behavioural profiling tool used by millions globally each year.  It is the most accurate and research validated profiling tool available today.


DiSC is an acronym for the four primary dimensions of behaviour;

  • Dominance – direct, results-orientated, strong-willed and forceful.
  • Influence – outgoing, enthusiastic, optimistic and lively.
  • Steadiness – even-tempered, accommodating, patient and humble.
  • Conscientiousness – analytical, reserved, precise and systematic.

Knowing your own DiSC style is helpful in understanding your own natural behaviour tendencies and how to meet your individual needs.  But when building relationships with others – something we all have to do – knowing how to adapt your behaviour to improve relationships with other people improves communication and creates win/win solutions.

This self-awareness and awareness of other people’s styles can enhance relationshipS management, client interaction, reduce conflict in the workplace and enable adaptive productive employees.  All of these qualities are imperative for business success.

  1. DiSC tools don’t just provide the individual with an understanding of their own behavioural style.  Their profile gives them specific application strategies for improving communication, relationships and results with others of different styles.  For this reason DiSC is a wonderful tool to facilitate team building and team cohesiveness.
  2. Often businesses promote individuals to manager or supervisor roles based on their technical skills.  Whilst this can work at times, often there is a need for further development of their leadership skills.  DiSC offers a ‘Management Profile’ and ‘Work of Leaders’ profile.  Both of these focus on a person’s natural management style and how to improve their effectiveness as a manager and leader.
  3. For staff in a sales role, understanding other’s personality types will enable them to adjust their technique to make the best possible connection with their customer.  The DiSC ‘Sales’ profile provides individuals with the tools to effectively close sales.
  4. Recruiting the right people at the right time in the right location is one of the most challenging obstacles a business can face.  DiSC can assist with the effective recruitment of the right person.  DiSC can provide an insight as to their predicted fit with the role, and whether they are likely to fit well with the team and culture.

At Focus HR we can provide a range of DiSC applications, tailored to your business.  Some of the popular approaches are:

  2. DiSC Management Workshop - using the DiSC Management profile, we spend dedicated time with your management team in understanding their own profile and how they can then adapt this to increase their effectiveness as Managers and leaders of your organisation.
  3. DiSC Sales Workshop - using the DiSC Sales profile, we run a half day workshop with your sales team to teach them the ability to use DiSC in tailoring their sales approach to each type of personality; thus increasing their ability to close sales with your varied customer base.

What Our Clients Say ...

The DISC Workshop facilitated by Focus HR for TASC was a great success.  As a management team with new members, it was rewarding to be able to discuss our various management and communication styles in such a professionally facilitated forum.  It gave us confidence to be able to communicate openly and clearly with each other. The Facilitator’s knowledge of the content and process and her ability to support us through the discussion added enormous value to the exercise.  We are communicating better, we understand each other better, and we are more connected as a team as a result of this process.
