What to expect when completing your DiSC Assessment
Posted on 5th June 2023 at 10:48
As a UK based certified DISC practitioner, I often get asked by clients what they should expect when completing their DiSC assessment. Here is a brief overview of what you can expect when taking this assessment.
Firstly, it's important to understand what DiSC is. DiSC is a behavioural assessment tool that measures a person's dominant behavioural style based on four traits: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness. The results of the assessment can provide individuals and teams with insight into their strengths and areas for improvement, communication styles, and how they interact with others.
You will be emailed a link that is personal to you. This takes you to the assessment site where you can expect to answer a series of questions that will help determine your behavioural style. These questions will be in the form of statements that you will rate on a scale of "strongly agree" to "strongly disagree." It's important to answer these questions honestly and without overthinking.
The assessment itself usually takes around 10-15 minutes to complete, and the results are generated immediately upon completion. These results will show you where you fall on the DiSC spectrum, with a breakdown of how much Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness you display.
After receiving your results, your certified DISC practitioner will send you a link to book your debrief session, (unless you are part of a workshop) these normally happen on Zoom. Karrie-Ann will go through the report with you, helping you to understand what your results mean and how you can use them to improve your communication and relationships with others.
One of the most important things to keep in mind when taking the DiSC assessment is that there is no right or wrong answer. The assessment is designed to provide insight into your behavioural style, and everyone's style is unique. Therefore, it's important not to compare yourself to others or feel like you need to change who you are based on the results.
In conclusion, taking the DiSC assessment can be a valuable tool in understanding your behavioural style and improving your communication and relationships with others. By being honest with your answers and open to learning about your results, you can gain valuable insights that will serve you well in both your personal and professional life.
