What is TriMetrix® DNA?

TriMetrix® DNA: Triple-Science Profile

TriMetrix® DNA is another of our triple-science assessments! Combining three cutting edge assessments to explore behavioural style, personal motivators/drivers, and competencies, TriMetrix® DNA is a powerful addition for any trainer, coach, or consultant's toolkit!

TriMetrix® DNA: A Triple Science Assessment

As a triple-science assessment, TriMetrix® DNA provides us with three perspectives to understand the people we work with: it explores their behavioural style (HOW they prefer to behave and communicate), their personal motivators/drivers (WHY they move into action), and their competencies (WHICH competencies they have mastered).

When using a traditional single-dimensional assessment, we can miss (or have to assume) so much about what makes a person who they are. With a multi-science assessment, such as TriMetrix® DNA, we have more places to look for answers and a more complete framework to help people understand themselves and others.

TriMetrix® DNA – Behaviours Motivators DNA Assessment

The Multi-Science Advantage

When using the DISC assessment, the "high C” style is often characterised as behaving in a structured and organised fashion. Because of this, many consultants falsely assume that someone with a "low C" will be unable to cope with work that requires attention to detail, planning and analysis. While sometimes this assumption is true, other times it is completely false. The question is: why?

When we have access to all three pieces of information provided by the TriMetrix® DNA, we can reveal what is missing. Even though the person has a "low C", we then learn, by looking at the person's Driving Forces profile, that there is a very strong drive for practicality (Resourceful) present. In addition to this finding, we learn, by looking at the person’s DNA profile, that there is a well developed competency for "Planning & Organising". An individual with this overall combination is someone who has mastered the ability to carry out detailed work very effectively (Planning/Organising), however, instead of seeking to gather large amounts of data (high C), they will prefer only essential information (low C), which is reinforced by the drive to get things done as practically and efficiently as possible (Resourceful). This integrated view reveals a more complete picture of an individual's strengths and weaknesses — one that other consultants frequently don’t get to see and thus risk giving their clients substandard advice.

TriMetrix® DNA is a Multi-Science Assessment, Combining



Exploring the science of Behaviour or How we perfer to behave & communicate

Driving Forces

Driving Forces

Exploring the science of Motivation or Why we move into action



Exploring the science of Competencies or Which competencies we have mastered

What Does TriMetrix® DNA Measure?

TriMetrix® DNA: Measuring behaviours, driving forces, and competencies!

The TriMetrix® DNA is a powerful assessment combining three sciences, helping you to explore three key areas of performance:

  • HOW we behave and communicate — using the world famous DISC assessment
  • WHY we move into action — using the simple yet powerful Driving Forces™ assessment
  • WHICH competencies we have mastered and to what degree — using the TTI DNA® assessment

This powerful combination is available in a number of versions (explained below) and covers 4 sections: Behaviours, Driving Forces, Competencies, as well as an integrated section combining Behavioural and Motivational feedback. This layered approach provides a fantastic framework for people to build awareness and appreciation of their potential strengths, opportunities for growth, and to craft specific action plans for professional development.

The Behaviours Section (DISC)

TriMetrix® DNA - DISC Profile

The Worlds Leading DISC Assessment. The TTI Success Insights® DISC profile is available in a number of different versions specifically designed for different applications. The 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 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 behaviours section also includes the Behavioural Hierarchy: 12 sub-behavioural tendencies based on the core four.

The Driving Forces Section

Exploring 12 Driving Forces™. The Driving Forces profile is a 14-page report. It takes you a step beyond the standard behavioural assessment to dive deeper into the world of personal values. There are 12 drivers measured by the assessment:

TriMetrix® DNA - Driving Forces Profile
  • Intellectual - Driven by opportunities to learn, acquire knowledge and the discovery of truth.
  • Instinctive - Driven by utilising past experiences, intuition and seeking specific knowledge when necessary.
  • Resourceful - Driven by practical results, maximising both efficiency and returns for their investments of time, talent, energy and resources.
  • Selfless - Driven by completing tasks for the sake of completion, with little expectation of personal return.
  • Harmonious - Driven by the experience, subjective viewpoints and balance in their surroundings.
  • Objective - Driven by the functionality and objectivity of their surroundings.
  • Altruistic - Driven to assist others for the satisfaction of being helpful and supportive.
  • Intentional - Driven to assist others for a specific purpose, not just for the sake of being helpful or supportive.
  • Commanding - Driven by status, recognition and control over personal freedom.
  • Collaborative - Driven by being in a supporting role and contributing with little need for individual recognition.
  • Structured - Driven by traditional approaches, proven methods and a defined system for living.
  • Receptive - Driven by new ideas, methods and opportunities that fall outside a defined system for living.

Note: Driving Forces also includes feedback on what a person should try to avoid based on their motivators. TTI’s brain-based research confirms that this has a deep subconscious impact on our decision making.

The Competencies Section (TTI DNA25®)

Exploring 25 Business Related Competencies. The competencies section of the TriMetrix® DNA examines a person's level of development in 25 business-related competencies. The report ranks the individual's "Competencies Hierarchy" from the most developed competency to the least developed competency.

DNA Profile

The 25 competencies measured are:

  • Appreciating Others and Conceptual Thinking
  • Conflict Management and Continuous Learning
  • Creativity & Innovation and Customer Focus
  • Decision Making and Diplomacy
  • Employee Development and Flexibility
  • Futuristic Thinking and Goal Orientation
  • Influencing Others and Interpersonal Skills
  • Leadership and Personal Accountability
  • Planning & Organising and Problem Solving
  • Project Management and Negotiation
  • Resiliency and Self Starting
  • Teamwork and Understanding Others
  • Time & Priority Management

Note: The TTI DNA® was created to simplify and refine more complex and cumbersome competency models. When creating a competency framework with this model, the same 25 competencies are applicable to any position. What changes each time is the hierarchy of importance and the extent to which each skill needs to be developed. Thus, the DNA model simplifies your development framework to highlight only the most important factors that affect a person's success in one's current (or future) role and only focus on the development of those skills which will have the highest payoff.

The Blended Section

This integrated section explores the influence of one dimension of performance on another — in this case, one's DISC behavioural style and personal motivators/drivers. Included in the TriMetrix® DNA Coaching Report is a section that explores how an individual's driving forces might impact their DISC behavioural style and vice versa. This is something that is not available from any other assessment provider.

Versions of the TriMetrix® DNA Profile

The TriMetrix® DNA series is made up of a collection of reports designed to support your initiatives and help achieve the outcomes you are looking for. All of our tools have been designed with flexibility, practicality and multiple uses in mind. This means you can invest once in the right profile and use it throughout the employee life cycle to maximise your investment. As a multi-science report, TriMetrix® DNA explores Behavioural Style, Driving Forces and Competencies. There are four sets of reports in this series, including:

Profile Jobs

TriMetrix® DNA Job Profiles

TriMetrix® DNA Accreditation via the ACI-DNA Upgrade Accreditation

Ultimate OD Toolkit

In order to access the TriMetrix® DNA profile, accreditation is first required. There are two steps to achieve accreditation (earning you the formal designations CPBA, CPMA, CPEQA, CPCA, CPAA):

(Please note that step 1 must be completed before step 2)

The Ultimate OD Toolkit Extension

In ACI-DNA Accreditation, we will explore the DNA model (looking at WHICH competencies people have mastered) and the ACI model (looking at WHAT personal talents people have at their disposal). We will also look at the integration of these two models with the rest of the TTI suite of tools, ensuring you have a more complete understanding of human performance.

The ACI-DNA Accreditation is facilitated via a series of weekly virtual sessions (approximately 12-14 weeks depending on public holidays etc). These are facilitated from our purpose-built virtual training studio. Each week there will be a facilitator-led workshop accompanied by additional self-study exercises to help embed the learning.

Unlike most assessment companies, we are able to provide you with more than one perspective, ensuring you have a more complete understanding of human performance. In total, we offer 5 sciences of performance. Attending the ACI-DNA "multi-science” accreditation will ensure you have more tools, resources, solutions, and better quality training to solve more client challenges — and ultimately win more business!
