DISC profiling is a tool that provides an accurate insight into the way people behave at work. It provides answers to such questions such as:
- What are this person’s strengths?
- Are we playing to this person’s strengths?
- What limitations do they have that might reduce their chances of success?
- Will this person be successful in a role that is results, relationship, standards or compliance focussed?
- Can this person drive for results?
- Can they work through people?
