Assessment Overview

Interior of the Taking Flight with DISC Profile

The Taking Flight with DISC Profile is the first step in breathing new life into the age-old DISC model. No more stuffy reports filled with psychological jargon and stock photographic images of people in the workplace. Our statistically valid and reliable report beautifully captures an individual’s behavioral style in a format that is attractive, user-friendly and applicable.

Given that 65% of people are visual learners, the Taking Flight with DISC Profile is designed to provide visual ques to help people remember their style. It is far more intuitive and easier to remember that an Eagle is results driven and confident, as compared to “The D Style”. With birds being pictured through the report, individuals can relate themselves to concrete behaviors and actions that will help them be more effective. The validation study included an impressive 28,200 people and more than 10 million have taken the assessment based on the algorithm in the Taking Flight with DISC Profile.

The profile offers behavioral insights to help increase self-awareness and improve how individuals relate to others. Instead of using letters to symbolize the styles, the report utilizes birds that embody the energy of each style.

In addition to specific information about the individual, the report provides deep insight into the characteristics of each of the styles. Regardless of the individual’s personal assessment results, the profile will educate the reader about Eagles, Parrots, Doves and Owls.
The report also contains valuable information about how to flex to the needs of others, how to communicate to each of the styles and how each of the styles responds in a variety of situations. At the end of the report, individuals are provided with specific questions that help them to create an action plan for improvement.

Assessment Format

DISC profile graph

The DISC assessment contains 24 questions. Each survey item presents four behavioral adjectives from which the respondent must select the adjective that MOST describes him or herself, as well as the adjective that is least accurate. At the end of the assessment, there are 6 additional tie-breaker questions that are used when the two strongest styles are equal.

Like all DISC instruments, this assessment has an ipsative, forced-choice design. Ipsative means that the profile contains a self-report inventory that measures traits as individuals perceive those qualities within themselves. The respondent must choose one trait at the exclusion of the others. The success of all self-report instruments depends on the candor, honesty and insight of the respondent.
