A Short History of DiSC
“EMOTIONS OF NORMAL PEOPLE” is a book written by by Dr. William Martson in 1928, explaining how human emotions in groups and situations evolve over time.
The initial theoretical work was first published in the 1920s. Throughout the years, the product has been continually evolving to become more reliable, simple to administer and memorable for the user.
DiSC Profiling is a personal and group assessment tool used to improve work productivity, teamwork and communication. It is non-judgmental, and assists people in understanding their behavioural differences.
The DiSC model provides a common language that people can use to better understand themselves and adapt their behaviours to others. This can be within a work team, a sales relationship, a leadership position, or other relationships.
DiSC Profiling not only facilitates better teamwork or minimise team conflict, it also provides skills that are transferrable to other areas such as sales and management. Sales personnel can use this to hone their sales skills to identify and respond to the various customer styles effectively. On the other hand, those in management positions can use this to better understand their employees and team members, thereby helping them become more perceptive, holistic and effective leaders.
For this program, participants will be required to finish a survey the day preceding. The responses to these questions will then be used to generate a report regarding their personalities and behaviours, which will be used to drive the discussion on the day of the program.
Facilitated workshop sessions for ALL LEVELS
A workshop will increase peoples’ understanding of themselves and their colleagues, helping to resolve conflict in the work environment and focusing the team on achieving its objectives more effectively.
The purpose of a Team-building Workshop is to increase communication and effectiveness within the team or group so that it achieves its objectives. The team will have a common language and a framework to discuss their collective strengths and how best to use them.
Disc Personality Test
DiSC Personality tool has been used successfully to help people learn to work more effectively with others. Through personal insights into their own behavioural strengths and challenges, participants in DiSC trainings learn to relate to others.
DiSC Profiling does more than providing insights into a person’s behaviour and character. The profiles were created with the workplace relationships in mind and offer strategies for working with, leading, managing, or selling to others.
The test instrument and the profile results are designed so that it’s easy to understand and recall your behavioural style and insights. The writing is engaging and the visuals are memorable. It is easy to understand your profile from a trained professional.
With the help of our professional facilitator, the participants will be able to discover their own and other people behavior characteristics and use their skills to improve relationship and communication among each other and other people they interact with.
With DISC you not only improve the team skills and work environment but you bring the business to new better level.

1. Discovering your DiSC style – Learn about your DiSC styles, how you priorities influence through your actions, and what motivates and stress you.
2. Understanding other styles – Get into groups according to the character you least want to work with. Read about how you might react to that character, then record on a handout what is difficult and what works for you when working with that style. Share with your small groups and create a flip chart showing what is difficult and what works. Repeat this exercise with the character you most want to work with. Each group presents their flip chart to the large group, participants use the information to complete the charts on their handouts. Finally, use stickers to identify one characteristic they find most difficult and one that works most for you on each flip chart, and discuss with the large group.
3. Building more effective relationships – Learn personalised strategies for building a more effective relationship with one style of your choice. Select one overall strategy and write an action plan for using it in your workplace. Finally, complete the front side of the Everything DiSC Workplace Style Guide to display in their workspace.
