Axiom's DISC tools have expert systems built in that make them usable from the moment you get started. DISC is far more than just a 'black box' that interprets profile results, though - it's a comprehensive system for describing a personality, and the more you know about it, the more you'll be able to get out of it.
Axiom's philosophy has always been based around informing DISC users and expanding their horizons. Our software includes comprehensive reference materials, but we also give free access to a great deal of material here on our Website.
If you want to know more about DISC and the way it works, you've come to the right place. Whether you're new to the topic, or an experienced user looking for specific informantion, you'll find something useful here.
Take a look through our library of DISC resources by clicking any of the links on the right. We're always expanding the material here, so if you have a question, and can't find the answer you need, just click the 'Contact Axiom' link above, and we'll do our best to help you out.
