Understanding the D.I.S.C. Personality Assessment


Lack of effective communication is at the core of the problems that most organizations face. Over two thirds of small to mid-size businesses admit that communication is their primary problem. A business with around 100 employees spends an average downtime of 17 hours a week on just clarifying communications, losing over half a million dollars annually on this exercise.

Miscommunication can cost an organization anywhere between a fourth and two fifths of its annual budget, as a result of which over four-fifths of projects are late, over budget, short of expectations, or simply undelivered as a result of poor communication at the outset.

Implementation of the D.I.S.C. Personality Assessment tool is the answer

The solution to these problems is to be clear about communication. The Dominance Influence Steadiness Conscientiousness (D.I.S.C.) Personality Assessment tool is a valuable instrument in helping resolve issues relating to communication gaps and ineffectiveness.

A webinar that is being organized by TrainHR, a very popular provider of professional trainings for the HR industry, will offer insights into this concept. Grant Schneider, who is president and founder of Performance Development Strategies, which helps organizations achieve greater results by aligning people in the organization with the organization’s mission and strategy; will be the speaker at this session.
