INTRODUCTION

For many years, successful organizations have relied upon a tool called “DISC” to help identify the behavioral types in an organization. DISC describes the four basic elements of human behavior as: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance. The basis for DISC began as early as 400BC, when Hippocrates observed clear and consistent similarities and differences in the way people interact. We still rely upon observable behavior to better understand and enhance our relationships. DISC has a universal language all its own, that explains behavior and emotions. DISC is based on factors that transcend gender, race and culture, but the four major components can easily be explained. All people exhibit these behavioral characteristics to one degree or another, regardless of their background and experience.

WHAT IS DISC?

The key to DISC is discovering the intensity a person brings to four areas of behavior:

• Dominance: How you approach problems and challenges

• Influence: How you interact and influence people

• Steadiness: How you respond to change and levels of activity

• Compliance: How you respond to rules and regulations.

The Dominance factor, for example, does not measure whether or not a person can solve problems, but rather measures how the person goes about solving problems and challenges. Once you have developed a heightened awareness of your DISC style, you can begin to consciously control your behavior and communication style. For example, if you are the type of person who knows tight deadlines stress you out-you might take extra care to timeline complex projects. Or if you are dealing with a manager who is very “bottom-line” oriented-you would want to come prepared to talk results and stick to business.

ASSEMBLING A SYMPHONY

It barely suffices to know the differences in people’s styles unless effective partnerships are built. This requires ongoing commitment from managers and employees. Sometimes a good connection between two people may “just happen,” but relationships are built over time, and must include mutual respect based on trust that transcends differences. DISC is a valuable aid to help people better understand themselves, and others. Just the awareness of this process gives enough insight to help resolve conflicts and enhance productivity.

RESPECTING DIFFERENCES

Why do people act the way they do? Why do priorities differ from person to person? Why does it seem so hard to approach some people while others seem to mirror your values, attitudes and interests? Differences in work styles quickly become obvious in an office environment. One individual may pay considerable attention to quality and detail while another “keeps their eye on the sparrow,” meeting schedules, but requiring rework. It is apparent that some kind of combination of these types of work styles could yield higher productivity and higher quality. Fortunately, it is possible to predict and observe these types of differences in a non-threatening, stimulating manner and create better understanding and productivity in the workplace. Just the awareness of different work and behavioral types in itself, helps employees to adapt their styles to compliment those of coworkers. DISC has a long history of achieving these kind of goals in many different working environments.

THE ORGANIZATIONAL BENEFITS

DISC helps people to:

•         Communicate more effectively

•         Establish goals that benefit individuals and organizations

•         Forge long-term mentoring relationships

•         Establish realistic milestones for performance and skills enhancement

•         Identify obstacles and problem areas that may be adversely affecting progress

•         Generate alternatives and actions plans to overcome problems

•         Form effective teams

 

The DISC process can provide employees from different branches and teams within an organization the opportunity to meet, learn about each other and learn more about how to build important working relationships throughout the organization.

Put quite simply, if you are relying upon resumes alone to identify and cultivate the human assets in your organization, you are using only half of the compass to guide your organization. DISC helps uncover potential gold mines and trouble areas in an organization in a constructive, non- threatening way that encourages employee participation.

As the conductor, you decide if your organization is making noise . . . or music.
