DISC Behavior Styles
Course Purpose

Behavior is observable and can be predicted. Each person has a “core” behavioral style. If overextended, a person’s strength may appear to be a weakness. Understanding these different behavioral attributes is vital to success in the workplace and in life. Using the DISC method, students can determine the nature and style of the partners and colleagues. From this knowledge, they will be much better equipped to communicate effectively on all levels. The DISC method effectively unlocks the power to assess and capitalize upon personality differences within any partnership or team. In turn, relationships flourish: The knowledge of these differences that helps to shape future

Background

People bring unique experiences and personalities into their relationships. A vital aspect to successful relationship building is the ability to identify a person’s behavioral style and understanding how that style will affect the relationship. The relationship is best served when people can respect the differences they bring to the table and learn how to benefit from them. The DISC method is a popular communication model that is used to better understand these differences by measuring the level of intensity a person brings to each of four core areas of behavior.
