One of the things that DISC models particularly well is the way that a person will interact with others, and a natural development from that fact is an examination of a individual in the context of a team.
Discus includes a new extension of DISC theory designed specifically to examine a members attitudes towards work in a team, and to identify the likely types of role that individual will adopt.
Discus doesn't stop with the individual member: it includes a complete team profiling suite, that's capable of describing the make-up of any team in DISC terms, and analysing the team as a whole, its leadership and the relationships within it.
Beyond describing and assessing teams, Discus also includes a Team Profiler - a tool that can actually construct ideal teams. Based on a behavioural definition that you provide, the Team Profiler will search through all the combinations of DISC profiles it can find to locate the best possible matches to your ideal team definition.
Four Team Factors
The four factors used by Discus to describe teams are derived from the standard DISC factors. They are:
Unlike ordinary DISC factors, each of these also has an 'inverse' value to complement the main team factor:
There are also a host of 'subfactors' deriving from these: the Understanding Teams handbook supplied with Discus explains all these terms in detail.
