Service Spotlight: Personality Assessments

Personality AssessmentCan a personality assessment really make a difference? Well, try to answer these questions:

  • Have you ever wondered why you and another co-worker always seem to clash?
  • Is there a relationship in your life that you would like to improve?

Communication

Communication is the foundation for any relationship, good or bad. But what is your communication style? And how does that relate to your personality?

DiSC® is the leading personal assessment tool used by over 1 million people every year to improve work productivity, teamwork and communication.

History

The DiSC personality assessment is not a trendy new tool business can use. DiSC theory has been around since the late 1920’s, created by psychologist William Moulton Marston.

Fun fact: Marston is also the inventor of the lie detector test.

How a personality assessment can help your organization

But how can a nearly 100 year old tool help your organization now? DiSC has evolved over the years into the user-friendly format we practice today. Using this model, you will gain insight into how to close the communication gaps between yourself and others. DiSC can:

  • act as a springboard for conversation and team building
  • improve communication between employees and the entire workplace
  • help to understand people who aren’t like you, OR are TOO much like you
  • reduce conflict and avoid misunderstandings

When using this with performance benchmarks, managers can make sure the right employees are aligned to the right position within the company. Employees who enjoy their jobs are more likely to be productive, effective, and will stay with the company longer.

Likewise, employee morale is a key factor in keeping a happy workforce. Of course communication is not the only foundation morale is based on. Staff need to have faith in the company mission and be ready to carry it out. However, employees that know how to communicate to others with different communication styles help reduce misunderstandings, which improves morale.

Investing in personality assessments for your organization is investing in your organization’s future, as the future of any great business relies on their staff.
