Being an Effective Leader with the DiSC® Leadership Profile Assessment

Successful leadership can unlock an organization’s potential to achieve remarkable results. An excellent leader, however, is not someone who simply has a vision. This vision must be communicated with employees effectively to turn it into a reality.

Communication is only fruitful when leaders are both reflective and empathetic. This means they are not only in touch with their own strengths and shortcomings but also those of their employees.

Armed with this information about their own and their employees’ psychosocial patterns, leaders are able to adjust their expectations from their workforce, and design customized strategies for talent retention.

How can you recognize your leadership style? And more importantly, how do you understand the behavior patterns of your employees? Discussing your own and your colleagues’ aspirations and pet peeves are one way to accomplish this. Noting people’s body language is another.

However, a useful technique is a personality assessment tool that identifies the analytical styles of different people.

How the DiSC Leadership Assessment is Used to Develop Effective Leaders

Out of the many personality assessment tools on the market today, the DiSC Assessment is one of the most comprehensive ones. Published by Wiley, DiSC is a behavior assessment tool based on the DiSC theory of psychologist William Moulton. It has emerged as the leader in addressing behavioral styles, out of which one usually stands out for every individual as their overall personality trait. These styles are the following:

Dominance

A person with this style sees the final destination, is intensely goal oriented and determined to achieve results beyond everyone’s expectations.

Influence                                 

The focus of a person with this style is on persuading others through their openness and enthusiasm.

Steadiness

An individual with this style cooperates with others, support them, and likes to take time to complete tasks.

Conscientiousness

People who resonate with this style are objective, detail-oriented, and passionate about being competent at their job.

How Can You Benefit from the DiSC Profile Assessment?

Understanding yourself and your workforce is crucial. Once this happens, you are equipped in:

  1. Training employees, according to their DiSC styles so that they can comprehend your vision.
  2. Assigning work to employees as per their strengths and weaknesses.
  3. Resolving conflicts successfully by advising employees in ways that will work for them
  4. Motivating employees through stress and burnout.

Leaders are increasingly investing in the well-being and effective management of their workforce. It is, after all, just as responsible for the success of an organization as its leadership.
