Personal Insight: When I first became aware of the DiSC it was an unbelievable eye opener to peoples behavior, thinking and actions. Suddenly I understood why others did what they did!
The reason I utilize the DiSC in my training is because of the simplicity in using it. No numbers or alphabets to memorize or get confused with. Rather a very straight forward understanding of what to observe in action, language and environment of others and suddenly you know how to adapt to them for greater results. Simple, not complicated.
Enhanced Report Options:
The EPIC platform offers enhanced report options and introduces deeper levels of interpretation. The system offers reports and features not available in Inscape's paper profiles through a variety of auxiliary features, ranging from composite group results to overviews of a team's interpersonal relationships. EPIC also gives organizations the capability to build group reports from data stored in the system, providing an analysis of team dynamics. As teams change, new group reports can be generated from existing data, adding new understanding without requiring more training time.

Work Expectations Profile
Work expectations are those things people consider likely to happen in their job situation, either now or in the future. Whether spoken or unspoken, met or unmet, expectations have a powerful impact on our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and play a key role in driving our attitudes. In a typical employment situation, certain expectations - such as salary, hours and job duties - are clearly understood both by employer and employee.
Research shows that people who have clearly defined, well-communicated expectations find more satisfaction and success in their work than people whose expectations go unspoken or unrealized. And companies that employ satisfied, successful people reap the rewards of increased productivity and reduced turnover.
The Work Expectations Profile is available in two versions, paper and online.

I-Sight DiSC Instrument For Youth
I-Sight: A Way to Understand Yourself and Others, is a unique learning profile developed for young people, ages 12 -18. Using the DiSC Dimensions of Behavior model, I-Sight creates positive self-awareness and understanding of others by helping young people recognize and accept behavioral differences.
The I-Sight instrument reinforces some things students already know about themselves, and reveals new, objective ways of looking at how their behavior impacts others. It also gives them a framework for interacting more effectively with people who are different from themselves.
Product History & Inception:
These profiles help us looking at why different people seem to act and react differently in similar situations. By understanding others behavior style we can be better prepared to communicate, persuade and work with them for a better outcome.
If we also understand and know our own behavior type, we can modify our approach to better fit the situation. This can also help us understand our strengths and how to use them while developing strategies to lessen the effect of our perceived weaker areas.
The DISC model is the four quadrant behavioral model based on the work of William Moulton Marston Ph.D. (1893 - 1947) to examine the behavior of individuals in their environment or within a specific situation.
DISC looks at behavioral styles and behavioral preferences. Marston, the father of the DISC, was a graduate of Harvard University. Among his contributions in his profession Marston was a consulting psychologist, researcher and author of five books, which he either wrote or co-authored. He was published in the American Journal of Psychology, The Encyclopedia of Psychology, and The Encyclopedia Britannica.
Ironically Marston is better known in many circles for his work in developing the lie detector. Another interesting factoid is that he also was the creator, writer and producer of "Wonder Woman," introducing into comic strips as the role model of a strong female.
It was Marston’s 1928 "Emotions of Normal People", which introduced the DISC theory to the public. He defined four categories of human behavioral style, type or temperament, which are 1. Dominance, 2. Influence (Marston chose the term inducement), 3. Steadiness or Stability (originally submission) and 4. Compliant, Conscientious, or Cautious, (originally compliance). Interestingly enough Marston never developed his D.I.S.C. model into a four quadrant model though now-a-days DISC has become one of the most popular four quadrant models, with various companies using quadrants, circles, wheels, and diamonds to graphically represent the positioning of behavioral and personality styles and types.
The main DISC Behavioral Report consist of just twenty-four questions and can graph over 19,000 individual responses, resulting in 384 possible behavioral styles.
