DISC: The Secret to Healthy Work Relationships
What does DISC mean?
DISC is a personal assessment tool used to help improve teamwork, communication, and productivity in the workplace. DISC is an acronym that stands for the four main personality profiles described in the DISC model: (D)ominance, (I)nfluence, (S)teadiness and (C)onscientiousness. The DISC model provides a common language people can use to better understnad themselves and those they interact with. Knowing where you and others around you fall on the DISC profile can help build stronger, more effective working relationships by :
- Raising self-awareness
- Improving teamwork
- Making conflict more productive
- Developing stronger sales skills
- Managing more effectively
