DISC In Sport

DISC In Sport

The DISC model is a behavioral–not personality–assessment, measuring four traits: dominance, influence, steadiness, and compliance. It works with different personalities to change behaviors in order to improve performance and develop self-awareness. There are three separate DISC profiles available, each of which is tailored to a distinct role within a sports organization (AthleteDISC, CoachDISC, and Sports ManagerDISC). The DISC helps give individuals the tools they need to enhance their strengths and work with others in a cooperative way.
