DISC, an acronym for Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientious /Compliance, is a powerful tool that helps to understand our behavioral tendencies. The model focuses on individual, externally observable behaviors and identifies four primary styles people may apply: D-style (Dominance), I-style (Influence), S-style (Steadiness), C-style (Correctness/Compliance).


The model is widely applied in business, where it is important to recognize people's styles for various purposes such as: more efficient communication, building long lasting relationships, demonstrating successful leadership, building high performing teams, effectively solving problems, etc. The power of DISC is also easily recognized in the private context when we simply want to improve our communication with others (spouse, children, parents, friends). Understanding specificities of different styles helps to be a better communicator, problem solver, leader, no matter what the context is.

Session Outline

The primary objective of the two-hour session is to provide fundamental knowledge of the DISC model by experiencing it empirically. All participants will be asked to fulfill a paper-based DISC mini assessment during the meeting. As a result, each participant will know his/her primary style and the % "distribution" of the other three styles. The focus will be on the primary style and what value the other three types bring.


To make it highly practical, the session will walk the participants through the most common applications of the model in the work environment, particularly for HR and employee development applications. The participants will discover how DISC can be incorporated into common HR processes and initiatives such as recruitment and selection, leadership development, team building, conflict resolutions, various workshops on communications, negotiations, problem solving, sales & business growth, customer service, team development, and coaching & mentoring.

  • Take DISC PREssessment during the session
  • Discover your primary DISC style and the other three styles
  • Unpack what each style brings and how to make them work together
  • Learn the most common applications of the DISC model in business
