Our team has extensive experience in using the DISC model to help our clients in the areas of selection, retention, development, management, career guidance, benchmarking, appraisal and team analysis.

DISC assessments and reports provide an insight into how people behave at work and helps individuals to become more aware of their own work style and that of others. It classifies the individual’s behavioral preferences in terms of four domains: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance.

The Theory

Marston’s theory states that actions based upon emotions are an individual’s biosocial response to supportive or hostile social environments. These actions determine how the individual interacts with the environment. The way in which the individual interacts with the environment takes four basic directions: tendencies to dominate, influence, submit and comply, which forms the acronym ‘DISC’. Marston published his book ‘Emotions of Normal People’ in 1928, which described his theory of human consciousness, more commonly known as the ‘DISC’ theory. His theory stemmed from two schools of thought – physiological and psychoanalytic.

Thomas Hendrickson developed the PPA (personal profile analysis) based on Marston’s theory in 1958 as a self-report system for the workplace.
