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.
On July 21, 2012 Everything DiSC Profiles began using Adaptive Testing (AT) and a new, more sophisticated scoring algorithm to give participants the most precise DiSC style assignment possible. The adaptive testing (AT) assessment data is currently being used in all Everything DiSC Profiles to provide even more precise dot placement on the respondent’s Everything DiSC map. All of the Everything DiSC Profiles will change gradually over time to incorporate additional data and feedback. The new data will be incorporated into not just dot placement, but also into assigning additional shading and priorities on the Everything DiSC map when appropriate. Respondents will be able to see all of their priorities reflected in their feedback, even if they prioritize things that aren’t usual for their styles.
Now we’re ready to launch the AT updates to the Everything DiSC Management Profile to provide participants with the benefits of adaptive testing and align with the improvements made to the Everything DiSC Workplace and Everything DiSC Work of Leaders programs.
Adaptive testing produces more precise results, which in turn provides a better experience for the user. The biggest benefit of adaptive testing is a more precise measurement. Increased personalization based on this greater precision and accuracy leads to a more accurate profile and more satisfied participants. When the Everything DiSC Management Profile is updated on October 31, 2013, respondents will be able to see all of their priorities reflected in their feedback.
Communication is the foundation of building personal and business relationships. Whether you are at work, at home or simply on the street, if you have poor personal communication skills, you will alienate people and convey messages in the wrong way. This can lead to conflict and other problems, causing tense situations in places where you should be able to relax, enjoy and focus on the things that really matter. Luckily, there are a number of ways for you to improve your personal communication. The use of DiSC Assessments will provide insights into building effective communication skills. It provides non-judgmental results that help people communicate to a greater degree as they discover and discuss their behavioral differences.
The DiSC Profile & The Importance of Teamwork
We all know how important teamwork is and that it is essential to the successful operations of any organization. However, the definition of team work is something that not everybody agrees with. After all, it is more than just working together, because people have their own roles, skills and special talents and it isn’t just about doing each person’s job. There are a few key items that you must get right in order to have effective team work. Focus on these, and you will find your company becoming more productive and efficient and your staff becoming more engaged. To help you focus you can use The DiSC Profile to discover more about yourself, your team, and the elements of creating team success.

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.
