The DISC system is used by many businesses and organisations and the benefits of using DISC largely centre on helping people to work more effectively together.

Your success in life – both professional and personal – is determined, in a very large part, by how well you interact with other people. Your ability to effectively relate, communicate, influence and motivate others is a crucial skill in creating successful relationships with customers, prospects, colleagues, subordinates, managers, friends and family members.

You have probably noticed it is very easy to get along with certain people. You can instantly and effortlessly understand the other person. The communication just flows. It is a lot more than just mutual understanding of what is being said. It is as if the person sees you and the rest of the world in very similar terms. When that happens, everything is easier. Think about the last time it happened. Wasn’t it effortless and uncomplicated?

Unfortunately, with most people, communication takes more effort. It does not flow as easily. You cannot quite understand where the other person is coming from, what they really want, and what their intentions are. You may also have an uncomfortable feeling the other person is experiencing the same about you. The outcomes of the interaction will not be quite what you want. You may lose a sale, frustrate a customer, de-motivate an employee, or anger a friend. You are likely to feel disappointed, frustrated and even exhausted. It takes energy, effort and concentration. Even still, the results are not what you hoped they would be.

In these situations you may feel there is something you could have done differently, but you are not quite sure what that is. You know your end goal – your destination – but are not sure how to get there. It is like being lost without a map. This is where DISC can prove useful.


Insights into behaviour

DISC gives insights into the behavioural strengths and challenges of individuals within an organisation, enabling them to work together in a more constructive and communicative way.

DISC can be used for:

  • Leadership and executive development
  • Management training
  • Sales training
  • Conflict management
  • Teambuilding
  • Customer service
  • Communication
  • Job coaching


The benefits of using DISC

Organisations and individuals who use DISC generally benefit from improved communication, better team dynamics, less conflict, greater staff motivation and more sales.

Meetings become more effective and colleagues cooperate with each other, leading to a better working environment, greater productivity and often improved financial performance.
