DiSC Management Essentials course at Sanctus Training

The underlying principles of the various DiSC styles were first identified by Richard Moulton and published in 1928. In the 1970’s the first use of computer based questionnaires were introduced. To date 50 million people worldwide have had the profile done.


Through developing skills and the ability to ‘read’ others from visible and verbal clues, you can dramatically improve the ability to understand and work with others. It isn’t all about skills and common interests, tailoring what you say and how you say it will help with all personality types.


Sanctus Training DiSC Management Essentials course will show candidates how their management styles influences; their time management, decision making, and problem solving skills. It will also is help to adapt candidates to the styles of others bringing out the best in each and every employee.


Motivators & Stressors of the Different Styles

The DiSC profiler has 4 broad categories. In order to fully understand these four DiSC styles, attention is given to the “motivators” that are often associated each style, as well as “stressors” that might impact their effectiveness in the workplace.


The ‘D’ style of the DiSC model represents Dominance

The D style tends to prioritise getting immediate results, taking action and challenging themselves and others. People who are high in Dominance are classified by their high self-confidence, assertiveness, goal orientation, competitiveness, and sense of urgency.


The ‘i’ style of the DiSC model represents Influence

The i style tends to prioritise expressing enthusiasm, taking action and encouraging collaboration. People high in the Influence quadrant are often articulate, enthusiastic, optimistic, and show high energy. They often verbalise ideas and concerns to others and appreciate an opportunity to “talk out their ideas” as a way to come to a decision or conclusion.


The ‘S’ style of the DiSC model represents Steadiness

The S style tends to prioritise giving support, maintaining stability and enjoying collaboration. People high in the Steadiness quadrant are generally calm and patient. They are cooperative and friendly, although because they are more reserved, their friendliness is more low-key than the effervescence of the “i” dimension.


The ‘C’ style of the DiSC assessment represents Conscientiousness

The C style tends to prioritise accuracy, maintaining stability and challenging assumptions.


People high in the Conscientiousness quadrant have a concern for accuracy and high standards. An analytical mind, an eye for detail, and they typically enjoy solving problems. They usually keep their feelings to themselves, which can make it more difficult to get to know them.
