- No special expertise is needed to create a custom Job Profile. You can set one up in just a few minutes by answering a simple set of questions that describe the job.

Understanding Working Relationships
For any pair of DISC candidate profiles, Discus can take those profiles and assess the dynamics at work between them, creating a Relationship Assessment.

- Relationship Assessment are available for any pair of profiles in your Discus database, and are entirely free and unlimited: there is no charge for assessing any working relationship.
- Like all of Discus' reports, you can review the relationship on screen, or create a high quality PDF copy to print, e-mail or simply save for reference.
Assessing Teams with Discus
Discus can beyond assessing working relationships to interpret the personality dynamics at work within any group of individuals.
- A Discus Team Assessment allows you to set up any team - real or potential - and investigate the ways in which that team's members will work together.
- Setting up teams is easy: just add the members you want to assess, then click 'Report' to see a full assessment of the team and its members.
- A Discus Team Assessment looks at the roles different members are likely to fulfil within the team, as well as interpreting the team itself, along with its particular strengths and challenges.
