What Are Personality Styles?
Every person has distinctive characteristics and qualities, which influence their thinking, preferences and behaviour. The DISC Personality Profiling System is a tool that aims to help individuals to increase effectiveness as they identify and capitalise on strengths, whilst recognising potential limitations and blind spots.
DISC is a four-quadrant behavioural model based on the work of William Moulton Marston Ph.D. (1893 – 1947) to examine the behaviour of individuals in a particular environment or within a specific situation. People with similar styles tend to exhibit specific common behavioural characteristics. All people share these four styles in varying degrees of intensity. The acronym DISC stands for the four personality styles represented by the letters: Dominant, Influencing, Steady and Compliant
Enhancing Interpersonal Communications
The DISC Personality Profiling System helps resolve potential interpersonal problems by providing insights into an individual’s preferred communication style. By being aware of an individual’s preferred style, it helps us adapt our own styles to others’ in order to minimise miscommunication and optimise communications. Communications among students and educators, between students and educators are enhanced through the understanding, appreciation and adaptation of the DISC communication styles.
Building Effective Teams
Strong and effective teams are formed on the basis of mutual trust when team members understand and appreciate each other and their contributions to the group. The DISC Personality Profiling System™ helps students and educators to understand why others behave in a particular way which they may not instinctively appreciate. It enhances interpersonal understanding and reduces the misreading of comments and actions.
Empowering Personal Development & Personnel Management
People excel in roles that match their skills and natural behaviour style. The DISC Personality Profiling Style System™ can reveal personal, management and leadership qualities, detail-oriented and organisational skills, natural sales ability, personal service and team-player tendencies. The DISC profile highlights the greatest motivation and fear of each personality style, as well as the ideal environment in which each individual thrives in. By understanding individual differences and preferences, educators can better manage, motivate and develop their students.
Boosting Stress Management Capabilities
The DISC Personality Profiling System™ identifies individuals who are experiencing transitions in life or stress as a result of unclear expectations, over-achieving, coping with changes and poor stress management techniques. Early identification and management of stress are essential in modern life, and the DISC profile provides a simple but powerful tool for detection and remedy. Better stress management results in higher individual, group and organisational resilience.
Augmenting Career Planning (Students)
Certain personality styles suit certain occupations or job roles. The DISC Personality Profiling System™ facilitates effective career planning by helping students discover aspects of their individual style which may be more compatible with certain jobs. A successful job match will allow an individual to be more satisfied, productive and creative at his or her workplace.
