Successful Leaders make an effort to understand other people. When you develop a deep curiosity in learning more about yourself and about other people, you’ll be amazed at the insights you get.

In professional leadership, recruitment and assessment, you need to gain the most powerful insights into the driving forces behind a person’s behaviours.

Your Behaviours are simply external expressions of your internal characteristics, or you might say who you identify yourself as.

Might it therefore be useful for you understand behavioural characteristics to improve your own leadership brand identity and influence the behaviours of others?

About DISC

DISC. is a four quadrant behavioural model based on the work of William Moulton Marston PhD (1893–1947) to examine the behaviour of individuals in their working environment. NOVODISC can be used to describe a person's general approach, including their motivations and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, and some of the basic assumptions they make about other people. It can also go far in helping to predict how a person will react in given situations…


NOVODISC profiling, if used wisely and responsibly, will provide you with new and deeper insights into understanding people and how to hone your own skills to master communication and the art of connecting with people. Your NOVODISC profile report will provide a detailed behavioural assessment and when used with the simple insights we can discover together by reviewing your profile, can become a powerful tool to help create extraordinary results.

The First Step: “Know Thyself”

Before you embark on an exercise of contemplating how to manage your team better, complete your NOVODISC profile questionnaire. We will then spend time together analysing its relevance to your role as leader and we will use the insights from your profile report to stimulate your thinking as to how YOU can make a difference to yourself and each of your team members.


Value To The Organisation

We will work together to Identify your characteristics of Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance that are high or low, above /below the centre line on the graph profile within your report and we will use the chart to learn more about how you can adapt your behavioural values to get the best of people and therefore the organisation.

We will provide guidelines on behaviour modification that demonstrate in order to gain commitment and maximise performance, managers must adapt and vary their behavioural style towards that of the person whom they manage. Successful leaders constantly modify their own behaviour in order to get the best from others. However, most managers find it difficult initially to act in different ways with different people.
