What is DISC?
DISC Profile: Single-Science Profile
DISC is the worlds #1 behavioural assessment, taken by millions of people every year and is estimated to be in use by 75% of Fortune 500 companies. DISC is a very simple yet powerful four-quadrant framework used to articulate the common ways that all human beings tend to behave and communicate.
What does DISC Measure?
DISC explores the question: HOW do we prefer to behave and communicate?
TTI Success Insights® was the first company in the world to computerise the DISC assessment. We are still the only company in the world with a complete reference manual on DISC. Our DISC assessments are comprehensive, research-based and user-friendly to ensure you and your respondents get the best from the experience.
The DISC Report
The worlds Leading DISC assessment
The TTI Success Insights® DISC profile is available in a number of different versions specifically designed for different applications. Our suite includes reports designed for use in recruitment and selection as well as more comprehensive coaching and development reports. Unlike some of the more primitive DISC models, our DISC assessments provide feedback on all four behavioural factors to truly capture how we are unique at a behavioural level and avoid pigeonholing people. The 4 core DISC behaviours measured are:
- Dominance - How we respond to problems & challenges.
- Influence - How we respond to people & contact.
- Steadiness - How we respond to pace & consistency.
- Compliance - How we respond to procedures & constraints.
Note: The DISC report also includes the Behavioural Hierarchy: 12 sub-behavioural tendencies based on the core four.
DISC Profiles: A Multi-Science Approach
DISC is a Single-Science Assessment - It explores the science of behaviour or How we prefer to behave & communicate
Explore our Multi-Science Assessments, combining - Acumen, Behaviour, Driving Forces, Competencies, Emotional Intelligence
As the first company in the world to computerise the DISC assessment, TTI Success Insights® has set the tone in the assessment industry for over 30 years, having established a DISC profile that leads the industry in validity and reliability. However, we also recognise that DISC, as a workplace tool, has limits to what it can achieve. With this in mind, the TTISI research team has developed a series of "multi-science" assessments designed to go beyond behaviour and explore other areas of performance.
Why is Multi-Science Important?
When we only have DISC, we only have one perspective to understand people. By combining the DISC profile with the Driving Forces assessment (known as Talent Insights®), we not only have HOW a person behaves, but also WHY they move into action. With this combination, we can understand how two people with a very similar "high D" style can appear so different — its because their driving forces colour how their behaviours manifest. For instance, when someone has a strong "Altruistic" driving force combined with a "high D", the altruistic driving force (a drive to help others and remove conflict) tends to soften some of the D styles characteristics. The multi-science approach produces more meaningful and useful feedback for you and your customers.
