The Disc Index
The DISC / VALUES assessment is distributed and administered by IMX – Innermatrix USA.
This tool is a foundational assessment to help us better understand our core wiring and motives. It is all about communication and connection. Assessment tools can quickly expedite our understanding of ourselves and others. Why do we think, act, and feel a certain way? Why does this behavior keep happening? What is the lens through which we see the world and others? Assessment tools are highly supportive for professionals and leaders to grow their soft skills and to improve the way they show up in the workplace to lead. This dramatically affects business performance.
The DISC Assessment looks at our basic way of operating. It is the HOW of our preferences helping to bring understanding to our behavioral style/how we do things. It is useful to understand this for ourselves and also those we work with. The assessment does not put you in a box to tell you who you are, rather it helps to highlight themes and go to behaviors of your typical way of operating. Depending on the combination you are, your behavior varies as you reflect on your task and social style, as well as your primary mode of operating versus how you might adapt under stress or a different situation. The DISC is a classic and long-standing tool.
I have worked with it since 1990 (I was in High School when it was first introduced!). Due to the simplicity, it is an excellent tool to understand your basic wiring and mode of operating and then build on this by taking additional assessments of unique strengths and styles.
The Values Index
The Values Index is different than the DISC Assessment but a helpful complement to it. The Values Index helps us understand why we do what we do and what motivates us to do what we do.
There are 7 value measurements that indicate a value if the score in that subset is high or if the score is low. The higher the score the more the passion for that subset and the lower the score will only be under certain conditions, also indicating a desire for the opposite of that subscale.
Aesthetic – passion for harmony, connection, and peace
Economic – passion for results, ROI, and competitive gains
Individualistic – passion for unique and own way, independence
Political – passion for power, control, influence, leadership
Altruistic – passion for helping, giving self, supporting others,
Regulatory – passion for systems, order, rules, tradition
Theoretical – passion to discover the truth, learn, solve problems
