Extended DISC Behavioral Profiling

Extended DISC Behavioral Profiling

The Extended DISC behavioral profile or eDISC  is a popular and effective tool for identifying the inherent behavioural strengths and challenges of individuals and teams. Created from the works of Carl Jung, for whose work all behavioural tools are based upon, Jung created such terms as introvert, extrovert & collective unconscious

  • 1921 Jung wrote about psychological types.
  • 1928 William Moulton Marston expanded on Jungs work and published his findings called Emotions of Normal People in which he explained that people illustrate their emotions using four behavior types: Dominance (D), Inducement (I), Submission (S), and Compliance (C).
  • 1951 The DISC system was born, there are now over 50x variations around the world.
  • 1994 Extended DISC (eDISC) was developed from over 20yrs of facts & evidence and is now available in 56 languages.

We are all unique and each of us has our own way of doing things and behaving in different situations. These differences can cause challenges in our professional and personal lives. Through the analysis provided by extended DISC you will appreciate and understand these differences, and identify how to effectively interact with other behavioural styles and, therefore, ultimately improve your performance and communication.
