What is DISC training, and what does it aim to achieve?

DISC training is a type of behavioural assessment and training program that aims to help individuals understand their own behavioural style and the behavioural styles of others. The DISC model was developed by psychologist William Moulton Marston in the 1920s, and it categorises behavioural traits into four main dimensions:

Dominance (D), Influence (I), Steadiness (S), and Compliance (C). These dimensions represent different personality traits and communication styles.

DISC training typically involves workshops, seminars, or coaching sessions where participants learn about the four dimensions and how they relate to their own behaviour and interactions with others. The primary goals of DISC training are:

  • Self-awareness.
  • Understanding others.
  • Enhanced communication.
  • Team building.
  • Conflict resolution.

Overall, DISC training aims to promote better self-awareness, improved interpersonal relationships, and more effective communication in both personal and professional settings. It is commonly used in workplaces, leadership development programs, and team-building exercises to enhance individual and team performance.
