Workplace Behaviour Profiles: The Everything DiSC Family of Assessments and Workshops
What is DiSC?
DiSC® is the leading personal assessment tool used by more than 40 million people to improve work productivity, teamwork and communication. If you participate in a DiSC assessment, you’ll be asked to complete a series of questions that produce a detailed report about your personality and behaviour. DiSC is non-judgmental and helps people discuss their behavioural differences, recognizing the value we each bring.
The DiSC model provides a common language that people can use to better understand themselves and to adapt their behaviors with others. This can be within a work team, a sales relationship, a leadership position, or other relationships.
DiSC profiles help you and your team:
- Increase your self-knowledge: how you respond to conflict, what motivates you, what causes you stress and how you solve problems
- Facilitate better teamwork and minimize team conflict
- Develop stronger sales/fundraising/negotiating skills by identifying and responding to customer styles
- Manage more effectively by understanding the dispositions and priorities of employees and team members
- Become more self-knowledgeable, well-rounded and effective leaders
How is DiSC different then other assessments like Myers-Briggs?
DiSC looks at behaviours as a result of your personality type, rather than just looking at personality type alone. Why is that important? Because behaviour is what others see, and what we see in them. DiSC helps us identify and name our own behaviours and those of others, and understand the motivations behind them so that we can strengthen our relationships. Personality assessments like Myers-Briggs help us gain insight into ourselves but they stop there. Everything DiSC helps us translate that into tools to build better relationships and thus to be more successful in our work and career.
At Padraig, we provide five DiSC Assessment tools along with workshops that tie into and complement each profile:
Everything DiSC Work of Leaders
Vision, Alignment, Execution: The work of leaders, made easier. The Work of Leaders incorporates DiSC to stimulate fresh insight and dialog around leadership styles regardless of the leader’s knowledge or experience. It’s an opportunity for leaders at all levels of learning to reflect on how they approach each part of their work. In addition, Work of Leaders encourages reflection and discussion at a team and organizational level. Read More.

Successful managers read the needs of their employees and adapt their style accordingly. These are important skills that can be developed with the Everything DiSC® Management Profile and Workshop.Managers first learn about their own management preferences. Next, Everything DiSC Management teaches managers how to understand how each DiSC style likes to work, what motivates them, and how to identify areas where the people they manage have strong potential and areas where they may face obstacles.

Everything DiSC Workplace
Improving relationships to build stronger teams. What if people had their needs written all over them and that you were able to recognize that one person needed more independence, while another the need to participate more with others.

It is also particularly helpful for senior leaders who are not fundraisers but who are called upon to build relationships with prospective donors. (For example, perhaps you are a fundraiser for the Friends of the XYZ Museum, and the CEO/CFO/COO of the XYZ Museum is called upon regularly to help cultivate donors. He or she would benefit greatly from this program. Read More.
