Introducing DiSC – It’s a question of style.

DiSC is a model for understanding self and others in terms of individual differences in biases, preferences, needs and behavioural styles.

In this video (which lasts approx 15 minutes) you are introduced to the main 4 DiSC styles of behaviour by Tony Burgess and Julie French.

They are:

D is for ‘Dominance style’. Here the main priorities are action, results and challenge.

i is for ‘Influence style’. Here the main priorities are action, enthusiasm and collaboration.

S is for ‘Steadiness style’. Here the main priorities are collaboration, support and stability.

C is for ‘Conscientiousness style’. Here the main priorities are stability, accuracy and challenge.

Of course, an individual may have a blend of styles (for example a DC style) which would mean they would have a different blend of main priorities.

The DiSC model is intended to acknowledge people’s natural preferences, to sign-post them to areas for growth and development and to encourage behavioural flexibility in order to meet the needs of others and the needs of the situation, whilst getting their own needs met too.

Watching this video will enable you to:

  • Learn which DiSC style best represents your own biases, preferences and needs in a particular role
  • Consider where colleagues, associates and clients might be best represented by the DiSC model
  • Consider where perceptions of difference might lead to misunderstandings
  • Appreciate what may be driving the different behaviours of people who operate with a different DiSC style to yourself
  • Adopt a willingness to flex to maximise connection and influence
