DiSC is the leading personal assessment tool used by over 1 million people every year to improve work productivity, teamwork and communication.
DiSC is non-judgmental and helps people discuss their behavioral differences. If you participate in one of our DiSC programmes, you’ll be asked to complete a series of questions that produce a detailed report about your tendancies in the workplace.
The DiSC model provides a common language that people can use to better understand themselves and to adapt their behaviors with others. This can be within a work team, a sales relationship, a leadership position, or other relationships.
DiSC profiles help you and your team:
Increase your self-knowledge: 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 sales skills by identifying and responding to customer styles
Manage more effectively by understanding the dispositions and priorities of employees and team members

The Five Behaviours of a Cohesive Team Profile
As much effort as it takes to build a cohesive team, the process does not have to be complicated. In fact, keeping it simple is critical. Based on the best-selling book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni, this report is designed to provide a clear, concise, and practical guide to improve your team.
Quite simply, a cohesive team needs to master five behaviors: building trust, mastering conflict, achieving commitment, embracing accountability, and focusing on results. Before you begin, bear in mind that each behaviour builds on the previous one, so the behaviours should not be addressed in isolation of one another. Team members need to have a meaningful understanding of themselves and their peers, which is why this report is reinforced by DiSC, a powerful behavioural tool that has been helping people connect better for years.
Take a look at the overview of the five behaviors below:
Trust One Another
When team members are genuinely transparent and honest with one another, they are able to build vulnerability-based trust.
Engage in Conflict Around Ideas
When there is trust, team members are able to engage in unfiltered, constructive debate of ideas.
Commit to Decisions
When team members are able to offer opinions and debate ideas, they will be more likely to commit to decisions.
Hold One Another Accountable
When everyone is committed to a clear plan of action, they will be more willing to hold one another accountable.
Focus on Achieving Collective Results
The ultimate goal of building greater trust, healthy conflict, commitment, and accountability is one thing: the achievement of results.

Section 3 Adapting Your Sales Style to Your Customer’s Buying Style
Group Culture Profile
Just as individuals have unique styles, groups also tend to develop their own styles or cultures. This culture is an informal combination of behaviors, values, and attitudes that most people in the group take for granted.
“Put in the simplest terms, group culture is “the way we do things.”
Although not everybody agrees with or flows with the culture, most group members feel the pressure that a culture exerts to act in a certain way. DiSC® does not address all elements of culture, but it helps you understand many important priorities, needs, goals, fears, emotions, and behaviors within your culture.
Group culture is not simply the average of all the people in the group. A number of different factors determine group culture, such as:
The style of the group leaders
The most pronounced styles within the group
The type of work the group does
The historical culture of the group
The cohesion or tension within the group
The goals and mission of the group
These are just some of the factors that help shape group culture. Understanding the origins of your culture may be important if you hope to change it.

Scott’s delivery style is excellent, quickly establishing a good rapport with groups whilst being professional. He has extensive knowledge of Management theories and practice. Feedback from all delegates is always excellent. He has a good sense of humour and has the ability to get on with people at any level within the organisation.
