Extended DISC Personal Analysis

Extended DISC
This course is offered in partnership with Ascend Business Strategies.
The Extended DISC® is a valuable assessment tool that will teach you how to maximize your company’s human resource potential and deliver results. Understanding your most important asset will shape the success of your company one employee at a time.
From the Work Pair Analysis to the Team Report, The Extended DISC® will help you build the perfect team for any project. The assessments will tell you how each employee likes to receive communications and how they would perform under specific circumstances. Taking advantage of the Job Profile can also help you screen candidates before you hire to ensure you’re choosing the right person for the right job.
Extended DISC® identifies 160 specific behavioral styles, using four main quadrants that are identified with the letters D, I, S and C. Through individual self-assessments the strengths and development areas of each employee will be identified. Extended DISC® then measures their hard-wired behaviors and excludes the impact of the environment. So you’ll see who the individual actually is and not what they think they need to be in the existing environment. As a result, the employees’ true strengths and the areas where performance can be improved are revealed.
This tool can be used to aid in recruitment, training and leadership development, and quantifiably measures conscious behavior modifications
