DISC BEHAVIORAL PROFILE
One assessment in particular that is extremely helpful to persons as they
begin to think about new career options and career reinvention is the DISC
Behavioral Profile, which looks at your behavioral and communication
styles, your strengths and weaknesses, and the ideal work environment for
Many people, not familiar with assessments, confuse DISC with Myers-
Briggs and other personality-type assessments. While Myers-Briggs can
be helpful in recognising your personality style, I think the
DISC assessment provides much more "actionable data
and information" for individuals in transition. It also is
extremely helpful in getting you to see how you can "adapt"
your primary style for increased communication success
in your current workplace, even if you plan on leaving at
The letters in the acronym DISC characterise four distinct
behavioral styles. Each style has its own set of strengths
and weaknesses. Once you are aware of your style, you
will become more cognizant of your behavior and more
inclined to adapt your behavioral style to those around
you. Additionally, if you know your primary behavioral
style, you will be more "in tune" to what makes an ideal
environment for you when contemplating a career tran-
Below is a quick overview of the four style types:
D = Dominance (assertive, control) Task/Extro-
- "I am what I achieve."
People who score high on the "D" style tend to be very
active in dealing with problems and challenges in the work-
place. People with a high "D" profile can be demanding,
forceful, egocentric, strong-willed, and driving.
I = Influence (social, communication) People/Extro-
- "I am what people see."
People who score high on the "I" profile tend to influence
others through talking and activity and tend to be emotional.
They are described as being convincing, magnetic, political,
enthusiastic, persuasive, warm, demonstrative, trusting,
S = Steadiness (patience, thoughtfulness)
- "I am what I contribute."
People who score high on the "S" dimension like a steady
pace and security, and do not like sudden change and
variety. They tend to be calm, relaxed, patient, possessive,
predictable, deliberate, stable, consistent, and tend to be
unemotional and poker-faced.
C = Compliance (caution, conscientious)
- "I am what I perfect."
People who score high on the "C" dimension adhere to
rules, regulations, and structure. They like to do quality
work and do it right the first time. High C people are
careful, cautious, exacting, neat, systematic, diplomatic,
accurate, and tactful.
Although the DISC assessment only takes a few minutes
to complete, the report (interpreted by a trained career
coach) provides an abundance of tailored information about
your behavioral style, your ideal work environment, and
how you may be perceived by those around you. Once you
have some essential descriptors to work with, it will be
much easier for you to identify another person's style and
flex your behaviors accordingly, to make the best connection
and interaction possible.
