What is DISC?

Behavior Assessments / Communication Articles / DISC Profile / DISC Training / Hiring / Human Resource Management

DISC is the most widely used behavioral assessment tool, adopted by organizations around the world to improve teamwork and understand different communication styles. TTI Success Insights is the only provider of DISC assessments in the marketplace that generates 384 unique reports, customized for leadership, sales teams and individuals. Backed by 30 years of research, we use DISC to help reveal hidden talents and skills that create high-performing teams.

Simply stated, it is our observable human behavior. DISC tells us how we respond to problems and challenges; how we influence others to our points of view; how we respond to the pace of our environment; and how we respond to the rules and procedures set by others. There are many companies offering DISC assessments to aid in recruitment, coaching and training efforts, and we understand why – a person’s observable behavior contributes to one’s success on the job, and when matched to the job, they can play a large role in enhancing one’s performance.
