Leadership assessment tools HR Profiling Solutions provides

Extended DISC® is a behavioural analysis tool that provides a framework for understanding human behaviour. The Extended DISC® profile aims to develop leaders’ self-awareness, enable them to identify their DISC management or leadership styles and give them the information they need to adjust their behaviour, allowing them to communicate more effectively with different individuals and groups in diverse situations.

The 360 leadership assessment is a very effective tool that is both customisable and flexible. It provides leaders with an insight into 360 leadership, providing feedback on their performance and leadership from a range of people they regularly interact with; this could include peers, direct reports, senior managers or even a client. The feedback is collated into one anonymous report to identify strengths, development areas and blind spots.

The Extended DISC® Standard Behavioural Assessment

  • an individual’s behavioural style / their DISC profile – D, I, S, or C, but it goes deeper in recognising 160 different styles
  • their natural attributes, strengths and motivators
  • whether they are more task or people focused
  • situations likely to motivate and demotivate them
  • their behavioural tendencies under pressure
  • their likely behaviour in a team
  • their preferred communication styles
  • their likely stressors, signs of stress and stress alleviators

The Extended DISC® Lead & Manage Development Assessment

This DISC profile leadership assessment report focuses on the interaction between the leader/manager and their colleague or team. It seeks to make the leader/manager aware of how they do things, enabling them to recognise their strengths and work on more challenging areas. It greatly simplifies the identification of development areas for leaders. It covers:

  • the leader’s personal behavioural styles (their DISC profile)
  • their natural strengths, decision making and communication styles
  • DISC leadership styles / DISC management styles
  • leadership blind spots: reminders and suggestions that would increase their success as a leader
  • ways they may behave in pressure situations
  • development areas for leaders
  • how they achieve goals and results and help others to do the same
  • methods they employ to drive individual and team performance

Leadership Self-Study Guide

This report is designed for a leader to use themselves to learn more about their leadership style, how to adapt to achieve successful interactions, and to enable them to develop some of the key components required for being a good leader.  It can be worked through by a leader on their own or with a coach or facilitator.

What DISC profile is best for leadership and management?

There is no best DISC profile for a leadership or managerial role. Different styles are needed in different contexts. A successful leader is one who has a high level of self-awareness, who knows their own most natural DISC leadership styles and culture, and who is able to adapt to manage their team and interact with their colleagues more effectively. The Extended DISC® profiling tools are specifically designed to help leaders to develop the knowledge and insight to be able to do this. This includes being able to ‘read’ the behavioural style of others in order to optimise working relationships (i.e. being able to recognise what your employees may need from you) and to achieve strong outcomes.
