If you feel like you've tried everything, and nothing seems to work, you may be wondering why you should try the DISC personality assessment.You might be thinking, "How can this be so different than any of the things that I've tried in the past?"

To answer that important questions we've put together a list of 8 reasons why you should try the DISC personality assessment. After reading our list, we think you'll see how this is different than anything you might have tried before. That's why it really works!

DISC stands for the 4 personality traits, which are measured by the assessment: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Compliance.DISC profiles are not pigeonholes but represent a continuum along a scale. Everyone who takes the assessment will have one or two of these traits predominate to greater degrees while other traits will rank lower. It is the combination of these scales that reveals how each person, according to their personality, differs in behaviors and motives.

3. Empowers you to place people where they are the most effective. Once you understand your employees' behaviors and motivators on a deeper level, then you can begin to see why they may or may not be performing well in their current role.

  • Having predictability, careful planning so there are no surprises, and
  • Dealing with facts, being detailed, having prese instructions and feeling they understand all the factors before starting to work on something.
