How do I get started with Discus?

Getting started with Discus is easy. You'll just need to take a few minutes to sign up for an account, and then you'll be ready to start creating profiles right away.

Can I send questionnaires to my candidates online?

Discus provides an entire suite of features to make this process easy and automatic. At the simplest level, you can simply enter a person's e-mail address, and Discus will send them an invitation and then display and manage the questionnaire. Once the questionnaire is complete, a report will immediately be compiled and added to your accounts.

Discus also provides lots of options for your to customise this process to meet your exact requirements. For example, you can arrange to be automatically notified and sent a copy of the report as soon as it is available.

Can a person completing a questionnaire read their own report?

This is a decision you can make as you set up an invitation. There's no requirement to share the report, but you have the option of doing so if you wish.

Discus can also provide an intermediate solution through the 'Feedback' report, which is an alternative version of the report specifically designed for this purpose, providing a readable and accessible summary of the results.

Do I have access to all my profile reports?

Every DISC profile produced on your account is held in your own secure Discus database. You can access, review and manage those reports at any time. Discus even provides extra features to assess the results in combination, such as comparing candidates against the needs of a role, or assessing how individuals would work together in a team.

How can I recover a lost or forgotten Discus password?

It's easy to reset your Discus access details. You can start the process from the Discus sign-in page, or by following the link below. Discus will handle resetting your access through your registered e-mail address.

Is training available?

We offer a comprehensive online video training course introducing the DISC system and its workings. The course is free if you sign up for an account with fifty credits or more.

Discus itself offers an interactive guide to get your started, and extensive help resources throughout the system.

I received a test invitation, but I'm not able to use it.

There can be various reasons for this. The invitation code might already have been used, or it might simply have expired, or been cancelled by the user who originally set up the invitation.

Your best course of action in a situation like this is to get in touch with your invitation provider and ask them to set up another invitation for you.

I completed an invited questionnaire, but I didn't receive a copy of my report.

When a Discus user sends out an invitation, they can choose whether to give you access to your report or not, so it may simply be that this option isn't active.

If you think you should have received a report, your best course of action is to contact the person who sent you your invitation; they will have the option of sending you a copy.

Can I try Discus for free?

Sorry, we aren't able to offer free trial profiles, but if you want to try the service, remember that you can set up a Discus account with just a single credit.

If you want to see what Discus can produce, take a look at our extensive library of sample reports.

Using DISC Profiles in Team Building

Building and managing effective teams with DISC

Creating profiles for the members within a team takes DISC into a new dimension of analysis with Team Building.

There are many factors that can influence the effectiveness and performance of a team, but the team members' personalities will clearly be among the most important of these. If we create a DISC profile for every member of a team, then it becomes possible to model the workings of that team, and to anticipate the ways the team will operate.

Indeed, we're not limited to existing teams: it's just as possible to combine members for a potential team, and experiment with different combinations to find the optimum group. All this is facilitated through an easy-to-use team management system that lets you model and adjust any combination of profiles, and immediately view the results.

Team Profiling and Reporting

At the heart of a team assessment is the concept of the Team Profile, which draws in all the factors of the team's members to create a single graphic describing the team as a whole. This team profile follows the familiar four-factor layout of a conventional DISC profile, but the factors themselves are different, using terms like Direction and Participation to measure the processes at work within the team.

Drawing together all the members' profiles, in combination with the overall team profile, we can compose a detailed and extensive report about the team and its workings. That team report includes an overview of the team as a whole, with keynotes and comments on its structure, but it also goes on to explore a wide array of other aspects of the team.

One of these other aspects is leadership. If you choose to assign one of a team's members as its leader, we can compile a thorough analysis of that person's leadership style, and it will also look at how that style matches the needs of the team. This makes it easy to highlight areas where the leader needs to focus their attention to get the most out of the other team members.

Extensive leadership analysis, not only assessing the leader's style, but also the team's leadership needs.

Understanding the roles at work within a team has always been a crucial part of team assessment, and this aspect is included the report, too. This role analysis is based on a set of twenty-seven possible roles specifically designed to be compatible with members' DISC profiles. This approach can categorise members into roles such as Brainstormer, Consultant, Explorer, or any of many other types, each with a clear definition and explanation.

Taken together, all these features and reporting options make DISC indispensable in planning or managing the operation of a team.
