DISC in sport
DISC is a model used to develop self-awareness, provide a framework to understand others, improve communication skills and build strong, effective relationships.
DISC focuses on behavior, how someone prefers to act and what they do. Importantly, we can change how we behave but we can’t change our personality. It is easier to coach based on behavior as behavior is flexible (personality is not). We never ask an athlete to change their personality, but coaches constantly ask athletes to adjust what they do.
DISC measures the degree of Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientious behavior as represented in the four quadrant model. As outlined in the process, everyone has their unique level of each. It’s the combination of each level of D, I, S and C that describes someone’s individual behavioral profile.
The Athlete Assessments’ DISC Behavioral Profiles are specifically tailored to sport, with customized Profiles for coaches, athletes and sports managers.
Athlete Assessments’ DISC Profiles include a 12 minute online survey and results in a personalized 44-page DISC Profile Report (with summaries for easy use).
It details the individual’s personal style, strengths, limiting behaviors, communication preferences and the environment they perform best in.
