DISC Personality Testing in the Workplace by PeopleKeys: A New Strategy for Building Successful Teams

BOARDMAN, OHIO (PRWEB) April 11, 2013

With increasing frequency, companies have been moving toward a team-based work model. Unfortunately, although there are a great many benefits to a team-oriented organizational structure, the creation of successful teams is a difficult process. Putting together a strong team takes a great deal of insight and effort. Often, teams that seem solid on paper, don’t work together well in reality. Interpersonal conflict and other difficulties between team members are difficult to predict, and can compromise the success of entire projects.

In order to ensure that teams are as productive and harmonious as possible, companies are turning to DISC personality testing to help establish a more positive team dynamic. Based on the theories of psychologist William Marston, DISC personality tests provide insight into a wide range of personality traits including motivating factors, preferred communication style, stress reactions, and interpersonal dynamics.

Raw data from DISC tests help companies better understand their employees, and help employees better understand themselves. DISC personality profiles have made it easier for managers to create balanced and productive teams made up of complementary personality types. This strategic approach takes the guesswork out of team building, and gives project groups a greater chance of success.

DISC also helps employees self-diagnose their own team dynamics. When DISC is used in group team building exercises, employees are armed with information about not only their own personality, but also about the predictable behaviors of their co-workers. This allows teams to anticipate problems before they occur, communicate more effectively, and ultimately become more productive.

DISC tests have been so effective in a corporate environment that many companies are also offering their employees training seminars in [DISC theory. Research shows that employees that have a comprehensive understanding of human behavior are better communicators, are better equipped to deal with interpersonal conflict, and can more easily adapt to the challenges of a team environment.

As the trend towards small group collaboration in the workplace increases, companies continue to look for ways to improve the functionality of their teams. For many companies, DISC personality testing provides a simple solution to a complex problem.
