Extended DISC® tools are based on the internationally recognised four quadrant model of DISC. It is an easy to use assessment tool that gives you a foundation for enhanced performance, improved team dynamics and effective recruitment.
Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric once told a reporter that he spends 50% of his time on people issues.
Extended DISC® is a series of assessment tools to help with that 50%. It’s a roadmap of the behavioural characteristics that impact on our work, our judgements and our interaction with other people.
Employing the right person, which includes choosing someone with the most suitable behavioural styles for the job? Better understanding your employee’s strengths, motivators, development areas, and the management style they respond to best.Looking at the behavioral style of a team as a whole. Understanding where gaps exist and where the key strengths lie. Understanding what motivates each employee, issues that reduce motivation, an employee’s strengths and development areas. Understanding the influence of the present environment on the individual’s motivation.
Extended DISC measures the unconscious behavior and compares this with the conscious adjusted behavioral style, allowing the measurement of emotions. It goes way beyond regular DISC in this regard. We can then look at the emotions being communicated by the respondent at the time of completion of the questionnaire, such as stress levels, uncertainty of his/her role, insecurity, frustration, pressure to change etc. It also enables the report to define the influence of the present environment on the respondent’s motivation as far as certain needs are concerned. This is vital information both for the individual and the organisation.
Extended DISC assumes that an individual has reaction modes for all behavior styles, of which he or she prefers some more than others. Recognizing some 160 different styles, Extended DISC allows an individual to be more flexible and dynamic (adapting) in his or her behavior. Other DISC based programs assume an individual is either a feeling or thinking type, recognizing only four styles and even some of the other best known assessment systems, recognizes only 16 different styles.
Extended DISC is extremely difficult to cheat. DISC programs can (and often are) answered by the respondent in the way they believe their potential employer would like them to answer. This is because the emphasis is on the conscious adjusted behavioral style. We know when someone has tried to beat the system. The report will be either invalid, show mirror profiles, show a tight Profile II or show an over-shift in Profiles. There is no way of knowing when a simple DISC report is inaccurate.
Profile I illustrates how the person feels they want to adjust their behaviour to cope with the requirements of the present environment. Profile I demonstrates the individual’s conscious understanding of one’s self and own behaviour in the present situation (conscious self image).
By comparing the two profiles we can tell whether a person has tried to answer the questions the way they believe the interviewer wants them to appear, we can tell whether there is a key feeling of uncertainty or lack of clarity, whether the person feels insecure or whether a person is frustrated. We can even interpret a key feeling of helplessness and again whether a person is under pressure. We can tell whether a person feels the need to adjust, the amount they feel the need to adjust, and whether that adjustment is likely to lead to stress in the long haul.
The Extended DISC® Personal Analysis is the primary behavioural analysis tool. The Personal Analysis is excellent for development, career progression and recruitment. It provides the option to focus in greater detail on a person’s natural behavioural characteristics in management, leadership roles, customer service and more. Each analysis provides you with: A description of the person as they might be seen by others including their key attributes, motivators, ideal manager, communication and decision making style. A summary of their motivators, strengths, development areas and areas they would prefer to avoid or delay. A graphical description of the person’s natural behavioural characteristics. A “behaviour map” (Extended DISC Diamond) of the person’s natural behavioural style and their flexibility zones to illustrate where the candidate can make the most gains in the shortest period of time. A diagram of the person’s natural behavioural style alongside a diagram of how they perceive they need to adjust their natural behavioural style in adapting to their current environment. Understanding the movement in the two profiles enables consultants to measure emotions and provides other vital information on the candidate. A “Present Situation” report on the “influence of the current environment on the person’s motivation” as far as his/her needs are concerned and comments on the communication of certain vital emotions. Compare to Job report matching the person’s natural inclination with the specific job requirements. Personal Analysis is a useful tool not only for the individual him/herself, but for everyone communicating with that person. Its main purpose is to increase understanding of human behaviour: our own and others.
Style Assessment pages – 10 additional Style Assessment pages that relate the Personal Analysis results to a more specific behavioural style and their requirements such as sales style and entrepreneurial style. EDISC® Work Pair Analysis helps you clearly see the strengths and weaknesses of the working style of two individuals. EDISC® Team Analysis combines the results of the Personal Analysis results of your team into one report. It shows the team dynamics, the strengths and development areas of the team, and how the team members are adjusting their behaviours in the existing work environment.
