Why is Personality Profiling Important
Definition of personality profiling
Put simply, it should bring about a non-judgemental workplace assessment tool used to identify the differences in people’s behaviour. It can look at one person, a team of people and even help to resolve conflicts. It is designed to improve productivity, teamwork, leadership skills and how we communicate with each other counting external customers and prospects.
Using a profiling instrument, should be a positive, progressive and constructive experience. Taking positive steps towards skill-building, soft skill enhancement, improving critical thinking and better decision-making.

We’re all different. In a world where billions of people of various sizes, shapes, religions, faiths, colours and creed are all trying to make the most of their life, everyone of us has something unique to offer. We’re not going to get along with everyone else, and that’s OK. We don’t have to. We have to get through our life the best we can. If we can do that without harming anyone else, then even better.
We’re born, we grow, we learn, we meet the love of our life and we marry. Maybe we try again when we realise they weren’t the love of our life after all. We start a family and endeavour to nurture children of our own. We build our own little place we call home, on a spinning rock hurtling through an infinite universe. We do it differently to everyone else. That’s pretty amazing when you think about it.
Why use Personality Profiling?
Provides the an opportunity for:
- Bringing people together
- Improved understanding of own behaviours
- Increased understanding of others behaviours
- Greater tolerance levels between team members
- Clarifying the objective
- Building consensus
- Creating ownership and accountability
School is full of lessons, but so too is life. We learn new things every day. As adults, there’s an immense sense of wonder in learning new skills and even more so when we learn something about ourselves. We are a mystery to each other and to ourselves at times. We strive to be better, wiser and more knowledgeable to make the journey we’re all on worthwhile.
Personality profiling for business
For those carrying the responsibility of management and leadership, participants learn how their management style influences how they manage time, make decisions their approach to individuals and how they approach problems.
Why is Personality Profiling Important ?
Because its essential for individuals to understand more about their own and others behaviours for them to then adapt to the styles of their colleagues. Bringing out the best in each and every employee.
Whilst the universe may be infinite, life is not. When you’re squashed like a sardine on your daily commute, it might seem like forever, but it won’t last that long. On average, we spend around 90,000 hours of our lives at work over our lifetime. That’s 3,750 days. It’s a lot of time to spend in a place with colleagues. During these times post 2020 staff members are often working from home where communicating with their colleagues is a whole different scenario. It would make things so much better if we got along with them right?
Any workplace will be a melting pot of personalities. They will all share the same goal, but all be doing it for different reasons. Some will just be doing it for money, others will be doing it because they are on the career ladder. There’s no better illustration of the human spirit than a thriving workplace.
Disparate people thrown together for the common good. When it works, it feels great. When it doesn’t, it’s time to re-evaluate how to make it better. When that happens, you need DiSC® or more specifically, Everything DiSC®. Options for teams, sales teams or leadership
As a facilitator of DiSC, the message is clear each time I implement it within a team. You can see how individuals come to realise that they can approach others differently, in a way that minimises friction. Huge thanks to Sian at My Training Shop for the support I have received too.
I found this assessment helpful in the way that my chart clearly showed that I sit 1/2 way between focusing on detail and focusing on the big picture. This confirmation has equipped me to open up my mind moreso when identifying solutions
One of the things I have learned is that it is perfectly fine for me to work quietly behind the scenes. In the past, I sometimes felt different from others.
The Facilitation kit is designed to revolutionize professional, in-DiSC training sessions. They provide all the necessary tools to effectively shape training and cater to the diverse needs of different groups.- Great ongoing support from My Training Shop too!
Running courses that bring together sympathetic and supportive individuals with competitive and results-oriented individuals can be highly beneficial. This allows both groups to gain a better understanding of each other and creates a win-win situation.
Disc reports really help with recruiting for my clients and Sian has helped enormously with all aspects of providing the guidance around them.
Recently, I was assigned the responsibility of facilitating comprehensive training for our employees to enable them to adapt and communicate more effectively with each other. My approach was grounded in utilising a workplace report for every participant. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and demonstrates noticeable progress, as each participant is enthusiastic and actively striving to enhance their communication skills across various communication styles.
I must express my gratitude to My Training Shop for their outstanding service, which made the process of generating and distributing these reports a seamless experience. Thank you."
Now I have learnt about my style (and me), I feel I can contribute my views with more conviction. Whereas previously I often compared my communications to others and sometimes held back.
I loved how this report gave me an insight into how other people are likely seeing me. As an over-thinker, this is something that has always bothered me. I now actually feel more confident in who I am as a person - thank you!
Acquiring Confirmation is the one term that jumped straight into my mind following taking this assessment and receiving my report (very comprehensive). Upon reading about most of my traits (and recognising myself) I found it so reassuring to learn not only about me but how other people can be different and why. This is a sentence that stood out and one that I will be acting upon: 'When you express your passion, others become more committed'
Far from feeling labelled, seeing my disc report instantly gave me a sense of relief and empowerment at the same time.
Its really helping me understand my emotions and how they relate to my behaviour's of which am already explaining to others.
This has been a timely reminder not to create obstacles, and to start my life plan today! Simple to use but it packs a punch!
I found the learning module very user friendly. I loved the inspirational quotes, enjoyed the video and found the whole module to be very beneficial. It has been an effective learning tool and has definitely helped boost my resilience. Thank you 😊
Having already been an organisational avid disc advocate, Following consultation with Sian, it was agreed we would transfer to Catalyst. A sound decision as we now have our own in-house DISC platform which has helped enrich our disc culture even more so. On hand, easy to use and on the fly, We particularly like the 'motivator and stressors' element along with the management bolt-on. Great support from Sian too!
Sian's team and coaching sessions were insightful as she ensured all participants were empowered by continuous words of encouragement.
Sian's capabilities are varied and what she doesn't know she takes great care to find out.
