What are the Applications of DISC?
Because the principles of DISC are simple, easy to apply, and easy to understand, there are a number of applications for this behavioral tool. At the most basic level, DISC personality reports can be used for personal development, to better understand yourself, your motivations, and why you repeatedly do the things you do. Once one can understand themselves, as well as the tendencies and communication styles of others, increased communication and understanding between individuals ensues. This can be applied to conflict resolution, team building, and increasing communication in personal or corporate culture. When applied to specific areas, such as hiring, leadership development, stress management, sales training, education or ministry, DISC styles and tools can be applied in very specific ways to achieve a goal.
