the DiSC® - a powerful tool for you & your team

what iF PEOPLE HAD THEIR NEEDS WRITTEN ALL OVER THEM?

Wouldn’t it be nice if your athletes had their needs written all over them? To understand exactly what they need to have the most effective interaction? To know that your boss focuses immediately on end results, that your strength coach values team collaboration, or even that your assistant coach simply hasn’t had their morning coffee yet? 

Would it make your job easier? Would it change the way you work with them?

Communication and self awareness are two important leadership skills.

What  - specifically - are you currently doing to help your athletes develop these two skills? 

The DiSC® Assessment is a tool will enhance self awareness, communication, and emotional intelligence. Use it to reinforce the leadership training you already do with your team.

Help them gain insight into the patterns of behavior BEFORE they come up on your team. Develop a better plan...in advance.

Not only will your athletes learn better ways to work together as a team, they can utilize this valuable tool in all other areas of their lives - in the classroom and in their careers.

I would love to work with you to talk about how to best utilize this powerful tool with your team. After your student-athletes take a DiSC Assessment, I will help you customize a few simple activities that will help them put this learning into practice - as they work together as a team.


IDEAS FOR USing DiSC® WITH YOUR TEAM:

I’ve been using the DiSC with athletes and coaches for over 15 years. There’s value in simply having someone take a DiSC assessment. There’s even more value when you can make this information come alive for them - by unraveling the real life situations that come up on your team throughout the year.

DiSC FOR TEAM CAPTAINS - Give your team captains the opportunity to take the DiSC® Assessment and become more confident leaders for your team! Some leaders are more vocal and demonstrative while others more quiet and reserved. Your team leaders will learn more about their unique leadership style and ultimately make a greater impact on your team.

DiSC FOR YOUR STAFF - How well do you know the people on your support staff? Do you know how to best communicate with them and vice versa? Get to know this before the season picks up so you can work together most effectively.

Student-Athlete Participants who have taken the DiSC®:

“I thought it was going to be a waste of my time.  Now that I’ve taken it and learned more about it, it was the best thing I’ve done to understand myself.”

“It may sound crazy, but the DiSC® was totally accurate.  I read my report and completely identified with the profile.  It did help me understand and then begin to re-evaluate myself.  It not only helped me on my team, it also helped me in school - working with other groups in my classes.  Instead of getting frustrated in these team projects, I was able to see that we all just communicate differently.”

“The most useful part of the DiSC® was seeing how I appeared under stress.  It was great.  Now, I have learned to approach certain situations differently.  And I'm seeing different results!”

“In practice interviews, I've struggled to tell people what my strengths are.  I'm much more prepared to answer that question - by using the words from the DiSC®.”


NOT ALL DISC's are created equal!  Why use THIS DiSC®? 

It's simple.  It's concise.  It resonates - with each individual. 

There are lots of versions of the DiSC®. This version has evolved. It is the only DiSC® product to have gone through adaptive testing to give you the most accurate results available. Read through a sample report and see for yourself. In addition, you may access comparison reports, team culture reports, and more.

Why is this helpful?

  • Comparison reports allow you to match up any two individuals and compare their unique reports side by side. The comparison report gives each person a list of very specific actions to take to communicate more effectively with their partner.  
    • For example:  Do you have an athlete that you are really struggling to reach? Are you at odds with someone on your staff? The comparison report could give you valuable clues as to why things aren't going well and what you can do to improve that relationship.
  • The Team Culture Report provides a composite of your team’s DiSC® styles and information on how this can impact your team’s culture.  As a coach, you can then more easily understand your team’s DiSC® culture, explore its advantages and disadvantages, and discuss its effect on group members before the season really gets rolling.
