  • Enhance working relationships:  recognize the communication needs of team members, facilitate better teamwork and minimize team conflict.
  • Develop stronger sales skills: identify and respond to customer styles.
  • Lead and Manage more effectively: understand the dispositions and priorities of team members.
  • Provide a common language: help people understand one another, communicate more effectively and work better together.

History of DiSC®

DiSC® was introduced by William Moulton Marston, a physiological psychologist who studied observable and measurable behavior to help explain to people how they can understand and practice relationships. It was Marston who categorized our behavior into four groups (Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientiousness).

History of DiSC®

Walter V. Clarke, who was an industrial psychologist, built the first DiSC assessment based on Marston’s theory. He intended it to be used by businesses for hiring purposes. The four factors he measured were aggressive, sociable, stable and avoidant. Clarke later developed an assessment called Self-Description which gave a choice between two or more terms.

Inscape Publishing adopted this instrument and modified it to strengthen its reliability. The Everything DiSC®products expanded and were released by Inscape Publishing in 2007, with advanced reporting options with the current circle graph, facilitation kits and follow-up reports. It is believed that by presenting results in this way, it makes it easier to interpret results and recognize how team members complement one another.

In 2013 the assessment was updated to an adaptive format making it more reliable and accurate than its original version, DiSC Classic. The new reports display personality as a range of behaviors within a circle – offering a better representation of true day-to-day interactions with others. This change complements the highly personalized nature of the results and customizable facilitation tools.

The Everything DiSC® Personality Profile Process

Participants receive a link to an online Everything DiSC assessment. Using a 5-point scale, they rate themselves how much they agree or disagree on simple statements, keeping in mind, there are no right or wrong answers. To get the most accurate results, computerized adaptive-testing is used when generating a detailed personalized report uncovering the dominant traits in each person. Each profile, identifies your unique behavioral style, your tendencies, needs, and strategies for effective behavior. Each profile report also includes information about other DiSC styles to help you learn more about others for better working relationships.

A behavioral profile can be used as a standalone tool, or it can be combined with a customized training session from JER HR Group. Our facilitator can moderate a session or you can purchase an Everything DiSC facilitation kit and run your own DiSC workshops. Although certification is not required to facilitate a workshop, it is recommended. Someone in your organization can become certified as a DiSC facilitator either using the online DiSC assessment certification or attend an Everything DiSC certification class in person.
