The person completes an online assessment, selecting from groups of statements which one is the best description of them, and which statement is least like them.
We analyse their selections using the DISC EmpowerTM profiling software. This grades the person in two main behavioural areas:
A) Introversion vs. Extraversion
B) Results focus vs. People focus
Everyone is somewhere along these two axes… below is a sample for “Fred”:
Introversion vs. Extraversion
Results focus vs. People focus
We then transfer these results onto a grid:
By overlaying the famous DISC EmpowerTM grid, we can see that Fred’s primary behaviour style is a “D” (ie “Dominant”):
Should DISC EmpowerTM be the sole decider for recruitment, role allocation, etc?
No; DISC EmpowerTM is profiling behaviour. This is how the person behaves in the four key areas in the workplace, being:
How they deal with PROBLEMS
How they deal with other PEOPLE
The PACE that they work at
Their compliance with POLICY and rules
Other factors that would come into play would include:
Intelligence (IQ) – your ability to think and reason
Emotional Intelligence (EQ) – “Your EQ is the level of your ability to understand other people, what motivates them and how to work cooperatively with them,” says Howard Gardner, the influential Harvard theorist.
Physical ability – can you physically do the tasks required of the role?
