“Simple without being simplistic.”

Have you ever wondered what it means to be Everything DiSC® certified? The Wiley Everything DiSC® certification was created to help increase confidence and expertise in the Everything DiSC® products.

As we approach the end of the year, now is a great time to get your certification. That way, you’ll be able to use up any remaining 2022 budget and start off 2023 with the knowledge that will help improve your company culture.

You likely have some big goals for 2023, and DiSC® certification can help you get there.

What is DiSC®?

Everything DiSC Workplace® is a personal assessment tool that looks at how people communicate in order to build better relationships, reduce conflict, and improve work culture.

“DiSC” in Everything DiSC® is an acronym for the four main personality preferences in the model. People behave based on one of these personality preferences or from a combination of two of them.

The four types are dominance, influence, steadiness, and conscientiousness.

  • Dominance: People with this personality tend to be focused on getting things done. They’re more confident and fast-paced.
  • Influence: People with this type are mostly concerned with the relationships they have with others. They can be powerful, persuasive communicators and tend to be more open-minded.
  • Steadiness: For this personality type, you tend to find people who are dependable and cooperative.
  • Conscientiousness: Those who fall into this category put a lot of thought and care into their work. They focus on quality, accuracy, and competency.

As you may start to see from these personality types, building the right combination of these people into your team can be helpful in avoiding any blind spots or bottlenecks.
