What is DiSC®?

This is not a test. We repeat: this is not a test

One of the ways to explain what DiSC® is, is to explain what it is not. People often (mistakenly) refer to these tools as the DiSC® Test, the DiSC® Personality Test, or generically as personality tests, but a test implies pass or fail, right or wrong. DiSC® is an assessment of an individual’s personality style. Everyone is a blend of all four DiSC® styles—usually one, two, or even three styles stand out. There is no perfect DiSC® style, no good or bad or right or wrong. Just different.

DiSC® by the numbers
DiSC® is the leading personal assessment tool used by more than 46 million people to improve work productivity, teamwork and communication. Every year, more than a million people worldwide participate in DiSC®-based training programs used in thousands of organizations, including major government agencies and Fortune 500 companies. DiSC® related materials have been translated into 30 different languages and are used in 70 countries.

D ominant – Direct, firm, a leader, results-oriented

i nfluencing – Outgoing, talkative, optimistic, people-oriented

S teady – Even-tempered, accommodating, patient, family-oriented

C ompliant – Analytical, organized, data-driven, detail-oriented

What does DiSC® measure?

DiSC® measures personality and a natural behavioral style. It does not measure, aptitude, values, or intelligence. After answering a series of questions, a personalized DiSC® assessment profile describes behavior in various situations, for example how an individual influences others, responds to rules and procedures and responds to challenges.

Successful people understand themselves and how their behavior affects others.

The DiSC® model is non-judgmental and provides a common language that people can use to better understand themselves and to adapt their behaviors with others. This can be applied to leaders and their team, sales-client relationships, work teams and even personal relationships.

Thank you very much for organizing such a wonderful workshop. It will definitely help improve our performance at work to pursue perfection and excellence. Thank you again!


The most valuable part of the workshop was that the managers learned the different communication styles of their colleagues. You could see light bulbs going off throughout the day as people realized why interactions with their peers occurred the way they did.

My team was amazed at the practical information provided in your Campfire Leadership workshop – things they can use professionally and personally.


I have attended numerous  DiSC® training workshops and this one was MUCH easier to understand, remember, and apply than the normal DiSC® workshop.

Most valuable was the level of understanding that our managers gained about themselves and their fellow team members. Specifically, the section on communication really drove home the purpose of this workshop for our team.

We really enjoyed the training and my managers have made numerous positive comments about the concepts and what they took away from the day. Everyone enjoyed the training, learned something, and has a better understanding of their co-workers.


We really appreciated the facilitator’s willing to hang out with team and answer questions both before and after. That added a lot of value!


The workshop was fantastic, high energy and interactive. The presenter was excellent! The meeting was a tremendous success. Thank you for helping to facilitate all matters!
