DISC is a simple, practical, easy to remember and universally applicable model for the evaluation of behavioural styles. It focuses on individual patterns of external observable behaviours and measures the intensity of characteristics using scales of directness and openness for each of the four styles: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientious.
Thinking Style Assessment
The Thinking Style Assessment is not a psychological, intelligence or aptitude test. Unlike many self report assessments, this assessment objectively captures your thinking pattern.
This Thinking Style report documents your brain’s natural selection process when making decisions. Understanding the ability to process information is directly linked to strengths and potential blocks to performance. Thinking and mental processing ability, like musical talent or sports talent, can be learned and improved. Some talents can be great assets in some situations, but can become a hindrance in other situations.
Learning Styles Questionnaire
The Learning Styles Questionnaire simply helps individuals understand their relative preferences as they learn and to better manage their transfer process in the future.
It is intended to help determine where people’s general preferences or natural learning biases might lie. Although this is far from an exact science, the simple view is that the more we can understand about how we perceive new information or new learning, the better and more successful our learning transfer will be.
Emotional Intelligence Styles
Emotional intelligence is the ability to perceive emotions, to access and generate emotions so as to assist thought, to understand emotions and emotional knowledge and to reflectively regulate emotions so as to promote emotional and intellectual growth (Mayer & Salovey, 1997).
Research indicates that emotional intelligence can be learned and can be seen as measurable differences directly associated with professional and personal success. Furthermore, it may be responsible for up to 80% of the success we experience in life.
This assessment serves to:
- Heighten awareness of the various areas of emotional intelligence
- Indicate relative strengths and weaknesses
- Provide a framework for personal and professional improvement
Research shows that the most successful people share the common trait of self-awareness. They’re able to more quickly recognize situations that will make them more successful. As such, it’s easier for them to find ways of achieving objectives that resonate and align with their motivations. Those who understand their natural motivators better are far more likely to pursue the right opportunities, for the right reasons, and get the results they desire.
Motivation helps influence behaviour and action. For superior performance, it is vital to ensure that your motivations are satisfied by what you do to drive your passion, reduce fatigue, and inspire yourself.
The Motivators assessment is the result of Dr. Eduard Spranger’s and Gordon Allport’s combined research into what drives and motivates an individual. The dimensions of value discovered between these two researchers identify the reasons that drive an individual to utilize their talents in the unique way they do. These pages will help you understand your motivators and drivers, providing a clear course on how to maximize your performance by achieving better alignment with your passion for what you do and your behaviour.
