DiSC Preview - Paper Profile
The DiSC® Preview from Wiley Publishing is ideal for "lunch-and-learns" and other general audiences. The DiSC Preview is the perfect way to present DiSC as a practical and useful approach to understanding behavior.
The DiSC Preview is divided into 10 sections of four adjectives each. DiSC Preview respondents rank the descriptive words in each section, from most like themselves to least like themselves.
Point values for each word allow the respondents to discover their DiSC scores.
The DiSC Dimensions of Behavior Map then summarizes the basics of the four DiSC styles. It provides a brief overview so that the respondent can see at a glance the differences and similarities of the DiSC dimensions. Bulleted points display the preferences and behaviors of each DiSC style. Examples of likely statements for each of the DiSC styles are also included.
Potential improvements to effectiveness are presented in the "Strategies for Success" portion of the DiSC Preview. This section analyzes the motivations, interpersonal approaches, and communication methods of individuals with a certain style. Respondents identify not only their own tendencies but the characteristics of the other DiSC styles.
This DiSC Preview concludes with a series of questions that help respondents form action plans. These questions prompt respondents to think about the strengths and weaknesses of their communication styles.
