By understanding and appreciating the differences and similarities in people, we are more likely not to label what we see and hear as as “write” and “wrong”.
DISC opens the door to effective communication allowing you to tone and adapt your language and behaviour to better manage people in any environment. People respond better to people they like, trust and understand. People are different, but they are predictably different!
At Albemarle Consulting, we understand the importance of understanding people. What makes them act or react in a certain way, their thought process and why they say the things they say. Unlocking people’s style is what we do well and also something we can help you with you if you wish to become a much more effective communicator, coach, leader, manager, sales professional or parent/career.
We understand that when a person communicates to you according to your personality style and behavioural preferences, you are much more likely to be receptive and respond in a positive manner.
What is DISC ?
DISC - Personality System
In 1928, psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston published his book “The Emotions of Normal People” and developed what we now know and use today as the DISC Personality System. The system focused on four specific and different behavioural traits: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Compliance and ultimately went on to be validated during Dr. Marston’s studies at Harvard University. Today, his system is one of the most widely used for business applications worldwide.
Decision Makers, Direct in Communication, Risk Takers, Competitive, Goal & Results Oriented, Innovative, Challenges the Status Quo.
Outgoing, Welcoming, Enthusiastic, Optimistic, Impulsive, Persuasive, Emotional, Encourager of Others, Creative Problem Solver, Influential
Stable, Reliable, Values Safety & Security, Sympathetic to Others, Team Player, Non-Confrontational, Peacemaker, Loyal, Patient, Consistent
Accurate, Conscientious, Systematic, Organised, Analytical, Fact-Finder, Even Tempered, Methodical, Thorough, High Standards
These four styles are not black or white. Each of us has some (high and low) of each of these traits within our personality, and it is this unique combination which creates the DISC Personality Style.
