Use DiSC to help your team to collaborate better and become stronger, more effective leaders



DiSC is a personal assessment tool used to improve work productivity, teamwork and communication.

After completing a brief series of questions, you will be presented with a detailed report about your personality and behavior.

The DiSC model provides a common language that people can use to better understand themselves and to adapt their behaviors in order to collaborate better with others.

DiSC profiles help you and your team:

  • Show up as your best self: understand your personal value to others, how you respond to conflict, what motivates you, what causes you stress and how you solve problems
  • Facilitate better teamwork and minimize team conflict
  • Develop stronger leadership, sales, and customer service skills by identifying and responding to the styles of those you are trying to influence
  • Manage more effectively by understanding the preferences and priorities of others
  • Become more self-knowledgeable, well-rounded and effective leaders

A Quick Overview of DiSC


The 4 DiSC Styles


What Does DiSC Stand For?


A Little DiSC History

The initial DiSC model comes from Dr. William Marston, a physiological psychologist, in a book entitled Emotions of Normal People, published in 1928.

He did not create an instrument from his theory, but others did. That’s why you might discover other DiSC tests in the marketplace.

So be sure to look for the lowercase i in DiSC® to be sure you’re looking at the assessment tool researched, validated, and published by reputable entities.  Shockingly Different Leadership only uses the official DiSC assessment with its clients, as we also demand authenticity, high integrity, and delivery excellence.
