Extended DISC Assessments

Extended DISC® Individual Assessments are our most popular tools. Their success is based on their strong ability to provide information to make better decisions. Too often assessments tell us what we already know:
“Oh yes, that’s me.” If a tool only provides information that the user is already aware of, it has very limited value.
Extended DISC® Individual Assessment are designed to provide information that makes an impact, is actionable and, most importantly, has a positive impact on performance.

What are Extended DISC® Individual Assessments?

Individual Assessments are self-assessments that identify the strengths and development areas of an individual. What makes Extended DISC® different from other assessments is that it is able to measure the hard-wired behaviors to exclude the impact of the environment.

In practice, this means that the results show who the individual actually is and not what the person thinks he/she needs to be in the existing environment. As a result, the report identifies the true strengths and development areas to allow for real performance improvement.
