Unlock team potential with DISC

Gain deeper insights into your management style with DISC reports. These are available an an optional bolt-on to my management and leadership training.


DISC, a behaviour assessment tool, analyses patterns of communication, leadership, and teamwork preferences, represented by four colour profiles: Dominance (Red), Influence (Yellow), Steadiness (Green), and Compliance (Blue). It is built from the work of psychologists William Moulton Marston and Carl Jung.

This tool empowers you to understand your intrinsic motivators and stressors, enabling you to adapt your approach for more effective interactions.

DISC reports are created through an online questionnaire which takes on 10-15 minute to complete. How strongly your personality fits into each of the four colours is taken into account to create your personalised report.


By integrating DISC into your training, you’ll not only uncover your behavioural style but also learn to recognise and appreciate the different styles within your team.

DISC Report Features:

- Behavioural Characteristics

- Value to the Organization

- Communication Tips

- Ideal Work Environment

- Perceptions

- Descriptors

- Natural & Adapted Style

- Keys to Motivating

- Keys to Managing

- Areas for Improvement

- Action Plan

- Behavioural Hierarchy

- Style Insights® Graphs

- Behavioural Continuum

- Success Insights® Wheel


This knowledge is crucial when it comes to improving communication, managing people, and fostering a harmonious and productive workplace.​

You can keep your DISC report to yourself, but I find it works best if you share it with your manager after the training so you can use it as part of your personal development. As a Certified Professional Behaviour Analyst for DISC I can run individual debrief sessions if desired.


During the course, we’ll dive into how you can apply DISC insights daily to enhance your leadership impact and team dynamics. 


It's not just about self-awareness—it’s about creating a roadmap for continuous personal and professional development.

Who is it for?
