Everything DiSC Profile Supplement for Facilitators

Overview

These reports empower you with the insights that help individuals understand their results that they receive in the profiles.  The whole catalyst for the development of this tool was really to help people investigate DiSC style assignments that were a little confusing, a little vague or simply just to provide more information.  The most frequent situation is when the dot is close to the center of the circle.  This supplement can help you investigate why that happened.

The Everything DiSC Profile Supplement for Facilitator automatically accompanies the respective Everything DiSC Profile and therefore does not incur additional EPIC credits to generate.  It provides the behind the EPIC screen look of how a participant’s profile results were determined and what other factors might influence their style.  This is a one-page report that provides more detailed data about a respondent’s DiSC style assignment and dot placement, scores for eight DiSC scales and assessment items the respondent rated highly that aren’t typical for their style to help uncover the nuances of their style.

The report is divided into three sections:

  • DiSC Scales – Umbrella Graph
  • Unexpected Items for the Respondent’s Style
  • Priority Subscales

Going through each section of the Supplement for Facilitator:

Everything DiSC Umbrella GraphUnique Umbrella Graph

The items in the standard Everything DiSC Assessment are each assigned to one of the eight DiSC scales:  D, Di/iD, i, iS/Si, S, SC/CS, C, CD/DC.  These eight DiSC scales are the same for all applications.  The shape of the umbrella graph shows the scores on the eight DiSC scales.  A proprietary algorithm weighs the scores and assigns the most appropriate DiSC style and dot location.

Everything DiSC measures eight distinctive style scales, not just the four traditional scales of D, i, S and C as reflected in the DiSC Classic reports.  All of the Everything DiSC profiles are built on the same base assessment of these eight scales.  That’s one of the distinguishing features between Everything DiSC and DiSC Classic.  In measuring the eight DiSC scales, we get a more precise measurement.

The umbrella graph (see image above) in the first section shows the respondent’s scores on each of these eight scales; these are based on how the participant scored on each of the response items in the online assessment.  The closer the point is to the edge, the higher the score is on that scale.  With the umbrella graph of the DiSC scales you can also see to what degree the respondent is a mix of all styles.  With that data, the proprietary algorithm weighs those scale scores and assigns the DiSC style and the dot place on the Everything DiSC map.  The umbrella graph shows the individual scores that contribute to creating the map.  When the dot is assigned, you are automatically assigned the priorities that are associated with the primary DiSC style.  With the Everything DiSC Supplement for Facilitator you can see how the participant responded to each scale and you get insights why some of the feedback around priorities shaded on the map may not resonate with the respondent.

Everything DiSC Profile MapUnexpected Items

This section also helps to explain some of the disconnects the respondents may experience.  It lists the assessment items the respondents rated in a way that isn’t typical of their DiSC style.  It shows the actual statements that the respondent responded to on the 5-point response scale while completing the assessment.

This report will show up to the ten most meaningful statements starting with those rated “1” and “5,” then “2” and “4,” and show subtle ways a respondent’s tendencies may differ from their assigned style and from others with that same style.  The unexpected items may include items with high scores that are typically rated lower by people with that same style, as well as items with low scores that are typically rated higher by people with that same style.

Everything DiSC Priority SubscalesPriority Subscales

While each of the Everything DiSC programs is built on the same basic Everything DiSC Assessment, each has additional assessment items unique to that product.  These items are used to calculate product-specific priority scales that are used to determine whether the respondent has any extra priorities.  It is possible to have a high priority subscale in one product but not another.

The subscales (image to the left) are the final step in creating the respondent’s map.  Scores on the eight priority subscales are used to determine whether the respondent has one or more extra priorities.  If the respondent endorses a priority that is higher than an assigned style may be associated with, that priority will reach almost to the top of the bar graph, and will then become an extra priority which is shown as striped shading in the map.

Each Everything DiSC product comes with a unique Supplement for Facilitator report because the subscales indicate whether the respondent endorsed those extra priorities in the context of the product-specific assessments including Everything DiSC Workplace, Sales, Management, and Work of Leaders.  Extra priorities are measured based on product-specific questions.  They are determined based solely on product-specific response items and not the DiSC scales. It is very possible to have extra priorities in one product, but not another even though they reflect the same DiSC style.

Applications for the Everything DiSC Profile Supplement for Facilitator Report:

  • Investigate style assignments if the respondent does not identify completely with the feedback in their profile.  Life experience or long-term ability to adapt to job responsibilities and values are influences that could explain why feedback does not resonate.  Use the Supplement to help parse that out.
  • Navigate the more sophisticated style situations:
    • Dot close to the center
    • Dot has shifted from a previous profile
  • Enhanced Comparison Report discussions
