Personality Assessments in Business with the DiSC Profile
An Interview with Debbie Giles
Co-Founder and Co-Owner of Intesi! Resources Debbie Giles is a Certified DiSC Trainer with over 30 years of experience in business management, human resource and management training. In our interview she is talking about her work and experiences with personality assessment tests in the last years.
Which method for personality assessments do you use in general and why?
We sell, support, and train using DiSC Profiles by Wiley (formerly Inscape Publishing) who created the original DiSC assessment and continues to lead the way in DiSC innovation. We are an Everything DiSC Authorized Partner and rank in the top 1% of all 1,800 partners worldwide. DiSC is a powerful tool that is easy to understand and simplifies the complexity of human behavior. DiSC assessments are not designed to provide clinical insights into people’s psyches. They are designed to be self-scored and self-interpreted because the individual is regarded as the expert on themselves. You do not have to be a trained psychologist to use DiSC. It is accessible to anyone who has the desire to learn more about themselves and others using words found in everyday language.
