We are often reminded by clients of different applications that others may not have considered when using Extended DISC Behavioural Analysis Reports.
In early December we were contacted by a human resources consultant who had decided to use Extended DISC as he had been a user of another DISC based program for many years. He had seen one of our reports and was impressed by our ability to customise reports from a huge selection of over 1500 competencies.
Because his client had not been using Extended DISC in recruitment, the selection of personnel for specific tasks had not always been as efficient as the management would have liked and the consultant was engaged because of an apparent lack of effectiveness of two executives who held key positions.
The consultant tells us that he decided that the best way to fully understand the management team was to have each of them complete the on-line questionnaire and obtain a Behavioural Analysis Report. The outcome of this approach provided the consultant with some information he had not expected.
To his dismay, he found that two of the executive team were in roles that really did not suit their behavioural style and in fact were working in situations that were outside their comfort zone.
The effect of this was that not only were the two executives working under pressure (and using more energy than they might have if working within their comfort zone) but their natural talents were not being utilised.
