Think back to the last time you or someone you know visited the doctor with an ache, pain, or some kind of unusual symptom. What did the doctor do to determine the cause and treatment of the problem?
Just like doctors who administer several tests, make many observations and take typical vitals before determining a prognosis, we too must remember that there is not just one assessment that will work for every situation and reveal all the details you need to know. Instead, we need to be able to choose from a variety of assessments to find the best combination. Let's face it, not every development, selection or team-building situation is alike. You need different solutions for hiring an executive than you do a receptionist, and you need something different for leadership development than you do for sales development. Each specific situation deserves a customized approach to assessment solutions -- one where you can choose which assessments to administer before determining a prognosis.
While DISC is one of the most common assessments used in the workplace, it does not reveal everything you need to know about a person. In fact, DISC only measures behavior style and communications tendencies, or "how" we act in our natural and adapted environments. It doesn't tell us "why" we act in a certain way, what skills we have, or how well aware we are of our emotions. For almost every situation in training and development, knowing more than one facet of a person will help you provide better, more effective solutions and decisions. Knowing everything about DISC is great, but why stop there? Knowing more about yourself and those around you will even further allow you to leverage your skills and harness your challenges to increase the success you and others bring to the organization. Just imagine how much it would help to know why someone you work with makes the decisions they do or what skills they have that could help you to achieve both your goals and the goals of the organization?
Shouldn't you have the ability to choose from a variety of assessment options to help achieve your specific goals? We, along with TTI Performance Systems believe in the very foundation of assessments -- empowering you to better understand, appreciate and leverage the unique strengths of you and your teammates in both life on and off the job.
