How Extended DISC assists business owners

1. Selection of staff:

The use of the Extended DISC Personal Analysis Report will ensure that the behavioural style of the candidate meets the job requirement. It does not measure professional ability but it will identify the applicant’s natural unconscious behavioural style. There is also the Job Analysis Report which correctly identifies the job requirements enabling the measurement of the applicant’s natural inclination against the job requirement.

  • Whether the behavioural style is suitable for the position advertised
  • How best to communicate with the applicant in the future
  • Whether the person currently has any emotional problems (maybe caused through their work role)
  • How the applicant’s specific style will fit with the style of others he/she needs to work alongside
  • Amongst other things, what motivates the applicant thereby enabling the employer to know immediately how to ensure the applicant is productive from the start

2. Retention of staff

The Extended DISC Personal Analysis Report provides an insight into the emotions – it identifies stress, insecurity, uncertainty and other issues enabling the employer to ensure they maintain the best communication possible with their team. Other Extended DISC tools such as the Work Pair Analysis, the Team Analysis, and the 360 Programs also contribute to assisting with retention.

  • Choosing the most suitable applicant helps!
  • Focusing on the Present Situation page and specifically the influence of the current environment on the staff member’s motivation as far as specific needs are concerned is vital information for any employer

3. Motivation of staff:

The Extended DISC Personal Analysis Report contains a special section that identifies when a team member is not motivated. This section, the Present Situation page, focuses especially on the influence of the current environment on the staff member’s motivation as far as specific needs are concerned. If these needs are addressed, the person becomes motivated once again.

  • The report specifies precisely what motivates the person, what his/her fears are, what he/she try to avoid and what their “development areas” are.
  • It also shows their comfort zones, the area in which they can operate with least energy
  • It compares their conscious behavioural style with their unconscious style enabling the measurement of emotions.
