Using DiSC Group Reports

How To Use DiSC Group Reports


Using DiSC Group Reports

When using DiSC Group Reports in a team environment, these reports provide a detailed analysis of the team - common strengths, weaknesses, gap analysis and recommendations for managers and trainers to get the greatest results from the team as a whole.

Facilitator Report Versus Group Culture Reports - Both Are Group Reports

Both are group reports, and they are similar. 

The primary difference between them is that the DiSC Group Culture Report is anonymous.  It illustrates team dynamics, behavioral style and culture, but doesn't use any team member names.  This makes it easy to share with the entire team without sharing any information that some team members might feel is sensitive.

The DiSC Facilitator Report is designed for a trainer or team manager to have detailed insights into a group as a whole and is the most comprehensive of these two group reports.  Because the facilitator is expected to have an active role in the development or management of the participants, this report includes team member names, and may best be kept confidential.  

Group Report Use - Only Available for Online Profiles

The DiSC Group Report is only available in an online format.

When using DiSC Group Reports, each team member must have ordered and/or completed an individual online profile.  You CANNOT mix DiSC Classic and Everything DiSC individual profiles into a single group report.  They MUST be all from a single family of profiles, either DiSC Classic or Everything DiSC. 

NOTE:  Using DiSC Group Reports require 2+ individual DiSC Reports to be completed.

Group Report Uses

The Facilitator and Group Culture Reports are available for both the DiSC Classic and Everything DiSC family of profiles.

The DiSC Facilitator Report is highly recommended to support effective facilitation because it provides specific information about individual group members that could help lead the participants through the experience.  The Everything DiSC Facilitator Report will not only provide a map showing the distribution of DiSC styles in the group, talk about the group culture, but will also list participants' names along with their primary/secondary DiSC styles. 

The Everything DiSC Facilitator Report also contains Small-Group Bonus Pages on pages 16 and 17:

  • Quick Reference Chart that lists group members who have primary styles in each quadrant.  This page will not appear if there are more than 16 people in a single DiSC quadrant.
  • The Group Map with Names is generated for groups of 26 or fewer.

The DiSC Group Culture Report contains basically the same information as the DiSC Facilitator Report but it does not include the participants' names. This is a great report to share with the workshop participants to teach them the importance of group culture and helps them to understand the values, challenges, advantages and disadvantages of their group.  The goal is not to change the culture, but to allow everyone to perform to his/her fullest potential within it.

Use the DiSC Group Culture Report to help the participants gain a better sense of the group's culture.  Let participants read the page about this group's DiSC culture, then consider leading a discussion about how group members feel the priorities play out within the group. 

  • Are some priorities valued too much?
  • Are any priorities missing from the group culture?

By asking the group members to explore these issues, you may get a better sense of the group's actual culture.  Participants will better understand the benefits and costs of their environment.  Most likely, by using DiSC Group Reports, the group will gain some perspective on how people with different styles either strive or struggle in the culture.

How To Order Group Report Use

To order a group report without using an EPIC Account, you must order the group report at the same time that you order the individual profiles which will be used to create it when those individual reports are completed.
