Are you aware of your superpowers and blind spots?
Becoming better at anything requires an ongoing focus on self-awareness and learning how to lead people is no exception.
Do you know how to turn your strengths into leadership superpowers?
Are you clear on your areas for improvement?
Have you identified your blind spots, the things that trigger how you behave in certain situations?
Do you often wonder how others perceive your leadership style?
A DISC ADVANCED ® assessment will help you answer these questions. It will help you elevate your strengths and narrow your personal development plans down to the practical things that will make a real difference to your effectiveness as a leader.
What is a DISC ADVANCED® assessment?
DISC is a four-quadrant model that’s been around since 1920 and it has become the worlds most popular behavioural assessment tool.
It describes the different types of behaviours we all exhibit in the workplace based on the pace at which we typically operate and how we prioritise, people or task.
The four-quadrants represent different styles and most people have a mix.
D – Dominance
I – Influence
S – Steadiness
C – Compliance
The behaviours in all styles have benefits and challenges.
Of course, the model has come a long way since the 1920s.
DISC Profiles Australia are the only Australian owned DISC publisher and they have built the DISC ADVANCED® assessment tool which goes much further than traditional DISC because it identifies more styles.
And there’s a special version for leaders.
It will give you an insight into which of the behaviours you tend to exhibit more often and the combination of traits that makes up your unique style.
It also gives you an understanding of how to recognise and adjust your natural behaviours to lead others more effectively.
The only way you can access DISC ADVANCED® is via an accredited consultant. Better Bosses founder, Melissa McCarney is fully accredited.
How does it work?
Here’s how it works.
We will send you a short video to watch to introduce the DISC ADVANCED® model
Once you’ve watched the video, we will send you a link to the DISC ADVANCED® assessment tool. It’s an online questionnaire that takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete. There are no right or wrong answers. To get the most out of the results, we ask you to think about yourself at work when you’re completing the questionnaire and to answer the questions honestly.
