DISC Addons

The DISC Profile takes an in-depth look at one's predictable behaviors based on their DISC Personality Style. The DISC Profile identifies your Personality Style based on your levels of Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness. The DISC Profile covers the following areas of your personality and more:

However, when examining only one's behaviors, which are greatly impacted by one's current environment we are missing an opportunity to see the individual from a three-dimensional perspective of internal motivators and internal thinking styles, paired with outward behavior and interaction with others. This way we can understand what motivates someone and guides their decision making ability, then how those decisions have impacted their environment and behaviors, and how that contributes to a team environment in a positive or negative way. In order to gain this three-dimensional, well-rounded perspective of the individual, we suggest pairing the DISC Profile with two other behavioral assessments: the Thinking Style Behavioral Assessment and the Workplace Value Style Behavioral Assessment.

    Strengths in the Workplace
    Potential Limitations
    Contributions to a Team
    Motivational Characteristics
    Greatest General Fears
    Communication Style
    Compatibility with Other Personality Styles
    Growth Areas
    Ideal Environments
    Strengths in Leadership

Workplace Values Style Behavioral Assessment

The Workplace Values Style Behavioral Assessment focuses on one's internal motivators. These are values we hold personally very important, which guide our decision making. The online Values Style behavioral assessment reports will list your primary and secondary most prominent internal motivator. There are four values styles, listed below:

Personal Freedom

    Personal Goals/Personal Effort (I-I)
    Focuses on my own personal rights & goals
    Works alone to accomplish own goals
    Opportunity, Self Fulfillment, Challenging Norms, Personal Creativity

    Honesty, Sense of Right, Common Goals, Win-Win Situations

The Thinking Style Behavioral Assessment

The Thinking Style Behavioral Assessment focuses on two aspects. First, it outlines your primary and secondary thinking style. Second, it describes how that thinking style directly relates working in teams or groups with others. Our research indicates that the ideal team is composed with all 5 of the following thinking styles in order to be optimally effective. There are five thinking styles, listed below:

Theorist

    Creator
    Visionary
    Idea Provider

Executor

    Procedural
    Implementer
    Standards Setter

Analyst

    Practical
    Organizer
    Refiner of Methods

Manager

    Balancer
    Diplomat
    Facilitator

Strategist

    Goal Setter
    Plan Builder
    Problem Solver

When using the three behavioral assessments in conjunction (The DISC Profile, The Thinking Style Behavioral Assessment, and The Values Style Behavioral Assessment), they allow you to see what drives a person to make the decisions they do, their innate tendencies in communication and DISC behavior, the way they think and their contribution to group environments. When understanding how these three areas relate to one another, you can truly gain insight into a person.

These behavioral assessments are available in an online format (3 assessments with one report):
