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 relationship management and client interaction, reduce conflict in the workplace and enable adaptive, productive employees.  All of these qualities are imperative to business success.

  1. DiSC tools don’t just provide the individual with an understanding of their own behavioural style.  Their profile gives them specific 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.  While this can sometimes be effective, often there is a need for further development of their leadership skills.  DiSC offers a Management profile that focuses on a person’s natural management style and how to improve their effectiveness as a manager and leader.  Managers learn effective directing and delegating, gain insight into building a motivational environment and learn how to develop their direct reports.
  3. Workplace conflict is inevitable, and there's a much more effective solution than giving into the temptation to avoid dealing with these situations. DiSC for Productive Conflict is not your average conflict resolution program - it helps your team increase their self-awareness around conflict behaviours, understand how to manage their response and discover productive communication strategies. 
  4. Recruiting the right people at the right time is one of the most challenging obstacles a business can face.  DiSC can assist with the effective recruitment of the right person by providing an insight into their predicted fit in the role, and whether they are likely to integrate well with the team and culture.

At Focus HR we have a range of DiSC delivery options tailored to your business.  Some of the popular approaches are:

  1. DiSC Workshops - Using a DiSC profile suited to your business needs, we facilitate a half day workshop with your team focused on discovering their own DiSC styles, understanding each other and working together as a team more effectively. Popular options include DiSC Workplace, DiSC Management, DiSC Work of Leaders and DiSC Productive Conflict. 
  2. DiSC Profiles with One-to-One Debriefs - Each of our workshop options can be delivered in an individual format, with a member or members of your team completing a DiSC profile best suited to your business requirements.  We provide a comprehensive written report and spend dedicated one-on-one time helping them understand their own profile and how to build more effective and productive working relationships with others.
  3. DiSC for Recruitment & Selection - This is most effective when DiSC has already been introduced into your organisation.  By profiling potential new members you will gain early insight into how the person may fit in your existing team and how you can be most effective in supporting them to develop in their role.


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.
