The DISC Method Everyone has their unique level in the context of their role in sport. Other profiling tools say you are a specific this or that. DISC measures as a scale, which is more accurate and useful, therefore it allows rapid comparisons to be made. DISC measures the degree of Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientious behavior. For Athletes and Players - The Athlete DISC Profile: Get practical strategies to coach athletes to their individual needs. Know the behaviors producing their best performances for greater consistency when it counts the most. Help your athletes build self-awareness to make improvements and take greater responsibility for their behavior, on and off ‘the field’. For Coaches - The Coach DISC Profile: The distinguishing factor of great coaches is their constant pursuit for the competitive edge, in their athletes and themselves. Coaches will better understand their coaching styles (and their fellow coaches’ and staff) to find new ways to further improve their coaching and communication with athletes and others. Their coaching results will only further improve, guaranteed! For Sports Administrators and Professionals - The Sports Manager DISC Profile: Provide your people with comprehensive understanding of themselves and those they work with. Quickly improve communication, working relationships and ultimately results. Use with recruitment, as a foundation for professional development plans or part of a team building exercise. The DISC model was first designed in the early 1920s by William Moulton Marston (BA - Harvard University, LLB - Harvard Law School, PHD Psychology - Harvard University, Teacher - American University). Apart from unrelated aspects in his live, such as inventing the first functional lie detector polygraph and creation of the Wonder Woman comic, Marston's work was significant in the courts and legal system of the time. It evolved in 1924 when he first studied the concepts of will and a person's sense of power and their effect on personality and human behavior. His work in consciousness, colors, primary emotions and bodily symptoms also contributed greatly to the field of psychology. The DISC model since, has evolved considerably into one of the most widely used, and successful systems to develop individuals and teams.
