Behaviors (DISC) & Values (Motivators) Assessment

The DISC Behaviors & Motivators Assessment is a combination of two of the most popular assessments. One provides a profile of your observable behavior. It describes how you act in certain situations and circumstances.

The Motivators report explains the why of you behavior. It provides insight into what drives you. Together these two profiles provide a solid understanding of you, your strengths, you potential blind spots, and are of potential improvement.

What is a DISC Assessment?

There are hundreds of different DISC interpretations, tools and training products. These are all based on 4-quadrant DISC behavioral style theory. The DISC profiles that we recommend have easy-to-understand narrative reports with highly targeted information that can be used for self-awareness, as well as for personal, team, and corporate vitality planning.

A DISC profile is an accurate description of our observable actions and behaviors. It is not a test. There is no right or wrong DISC profile, no good or bad style. Every style combination has strengths and weaknesses, value to the organization and typical blind spots that might create problems if unaddressed. A profile narrates exactly how we prefer to do things and in what kind of environment we prefer to do them.

  • How do I prefer to communicate with others?
  • How do I go about achieving my goals?
  • What type of work environment do I need to thrive and be motivated?
  • What do I need to thrive and be motivated?
  • What behaviors do I tend to exhibit under stress?

Each behavioral style profile report is a detailed, personalized narrative that addresses how a person responds to Problems, People, Pace and Procedures.

  • Problems (Dominance)
- How you respond to problems and challenges.
  • People (Influence)
- How you influence others to your point of view.
  • Pace (Steadiness)
- How you respond to the pace of the environment.
  • Procedures (Compliance)
- How you respond to rules and procedures set by others.

What are the benefits of taking this assessment?

Developing a clear self-awareness and understanding, learning to adapt to styles that are different from ourselves will always produce more effective communications, better “people information” and, therefore, better decision-making.

Understanding our own specific role or position within a group or team context is the complete extension of good communication. Understanding styles corrects misconceptions, miscommunications, and misunderstandings that might have existed and plagued performance for some time.

Benefits & Uses of DISC Assessments

  • Better career choices.
  • Fast and validated identifications of strengths, weaknesses, contributions to team, and potential blind spots in development.
  • Guidance on personal branding and career development plans.
  • Improved communications.
  • Improved performance.
  • Reduced conflict
  • Better work teams
  • Better working environment for self-motivation.
  • Higher level of success and great career satisfaction.

These are just a few of the benefits and applications of the DISC assessment. There is something for each stage of your professional development.

What is the Motivators Report?

MOTIVATORS are what drive you. With motivators, we can make informed assumptions about what a person wants to spend their time and energy on. So, whereas the DISC Behavioral report tells us the “What” of a person’s behavior, the Motivators Report tells us the “Why” of their behavior.

The MOTIVATORS report indicates:

  • How you value and approach knowledge and information.
  • How you value and approach time and resources.
  • How you value and approach the arts and protection of the environment.
  • How you value and approach the efforts to help people and causes.
  • How you value and approach authority, power, and control.
  • How you value and approach traditions and a system of living.

The three objectives of debriefing the MOTIVATORS report are to assist you to:

  1. Identify and appreciate what motivates you.
  2. Identify and appreciate motivators you are indifferent to.
  3. Establish how your goals coincide with your motivators.

By understanding your values and motivators, you will better understand what truly drives you.

Studies suggest that over 50% of the workforce may be in jobs that are not suited to who they are and what they value. Another study, suggests the number may be as high as 90%.

If your career is an extension of who you are, you will not have to be motivated. You will get up in the morning and desire to go to work, because your environment will be providing the “value” you need in order to achieve your maximum potential.

Understanding your motivators can help you make a good choice when job hunting, or help you to better understand why some things about your job you don’t really enjoy. Your motivators are very deeply engrained in the fibers of who you are, so if you are in a career that isn’t aligned with them, you will not be as productive or satisfied with the job.

There is no other assessment on the market that offers this unique combination of profile reports to provide a powerful mix of insights.
