DiSC As a Framework for Better Relationships

There are many examples of ways Everything DiSC should and shouldn’t be used in the workplace (or in general). DiSC gives us a framework for understanding behavior, but the real value of DiSC is not just in knowing a person’s DiSC style—it goes much deeper than that. It’s about relationships.

The real magic happens when DiSC becomes part of an organizational culture where people have open dialogue about their priorities and preferences and use DiSC as a springboard for discussion. This dialogue is an opportunity to learn more about a person’s style, and then figure out ways to adapt to their needs. Because DiSC is used as a catalyst for conversation—versus a tool to categorize people—it becomes more about growing and building effective working relationships. Beyond this, learners are empowered to take what they learn from DiSC and #Stretch outside their comfort zone, manage their team more effectively, or actively improve their emotional intelligence, depending on which solution is being applied. And that’s when we see real, lasting growth for organizations and individuals alike.

The Value of DiSC

The Do’s and Don’t’s of DiSC

It’s true that Everything DiSC has the power to be a culture catalyst by starting each learner on the path from personalized insights to real behavior change. But achieving this powerful impact requires the appropriate use of DiSC in the workplace.

While DiSC is a tool that supports a variety of social and emotional contexts in the workplace, it’s possible to misuse the tool. Here are some of the biggest mistakes:
– Arguably the most-common misuse of DiSC is “pigeonholing” a person based on their DiSC style. Pigeonholing happens when a person’s abilities are limited or dismissed based on their DiSC style. This results in unfair stereotypes or generalizations. For example, “All C-styles get too bogged down in the details to see the big picture.”
– Using DiSC as an excuse for poor behavior, and a reason not to adapt! Unfortunately, this action often winds up stunting development and encouraging stereotypes, which is the antithesis of what Everything DiSC stands for.

The reality is that the behavior of people with the D, i, S, or C style does not all look the same across the board. There is a lot of variation, even within one DiSC style. That’s why it’s so important to use DiSC as a dialog tool to better understand how your DiSC style influences (or doesn’t influence) the way you work. #DontEncourageStereotypes

Now, let’s talk about DiSC DO’S. Do:

  • Apply a framework for understanding behavioral tendencies.
  • Use as a conversation catalyst to get to know, adapt to, and value others.
  • Instill a common language in an organization.

Authorized Partners for DiSC solutions, like us, are here to help you leverage the tool correctly, so you and your organization can get the most out of your experience!

The importance of understanding DiSC do's and don't's

Everything DiSC Theory

Let’s talk about DiSC theory.
Each person has a unique behavioral profile with different styles and priorities—no one DiSC style better or worse than the next. These differences in style can be extremely valuable.

Although the DiSC dimensions form four distinct styles, it is probably more useful to think of the DiSC circle in continuous terms. Consider that each of the four styles blend into their neighboring styles much the same way that colors blend into one another on the color wheel. So, while there are four distinct styles, because a person can be a blend of styles, Everything DiSC actually encompasses 12 unique DiSC styles.

How well does DiSC actually work?
The Everything DiSC team has been researching and analyzing DiSC for over 40 years. (By the way, you’ll always know it’s the real DiSC by the signature lower-cased “i” in DiSC.)

As technology has evolved, DiSC has too. Online DiSC assessments use the most advanced assessment method (adaptive testing) and sophisticated algorithms to quickly analyze a person’s responses and deliver the most precise feedback possible. In my experience the DiSC tools are super easy to understand and just as easy to implement immediately!

The Rising Need for Agile Organizations

“Agility” is more than a buzzword in the workplace today; it’s a requirement. The need for agile organizations continues to increase. But how do organizations meet this rising need?
