DiSC, your secret piece of the puzzle


Published on

DiSC is a behaviour recognition technique that helps communicate with individuals in their dominant communication style. It is not about personality, because it does not measure values. It is about the behaviours that people exhibit in situations where they are experiencing higher levels of stress. These include sales situations, situations in which they are frustrated, situations that are complex in nature. The dominant behaviour style will come out as will the communication associated with this style. If communication styles are not matched correctly, confusion is sure to happen. DiSC is a tool to make more effective communications between co-workers, subordinates, and even supervisors. Please enjoy.
