The DISC model is a very practical and user-friendly theory of human behavior. It creates a common language and a framework to better understand ourselves and others. It is completely non-judgmental with no good or bad categories, or high or low scores.
The DISC model divides people into four main behavioral styles. Individuals are identified as either People-oriented or Task-oriented. They are further distinguished as Reserved or Active. The resulting behavioral styles are called:
- D-style (Dominance)
- I-style (Influence)
- S-style (Steadiness)
- C-style (Correctness)
As a trained facilitator and presenter, I can assist you in learning more about how DISC assessment tools can help you better understand coworkers, customers, vendors and even family members!

What DISC is NOT:
DISC is NOT about labeling people.
DISC in not a personality test.
DISC does not measure intelligence.
DISC is a tool to better understanding why we react to things the way we do. When used properly DISC assessments allow us better and more effective communication, starting by helping us understand ourselves more completely.
