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.

Benefits of the DISC Profile

How DISC can make a real difference to the way you work with people

The benefits of a system that can look at people in an objective and quantifiable way are enormous. DISC gives you advantages that cross a whole range of business functions.

Whether you're selecting a new candidate for a role, assessing someone who's already part of your organisation, or just finding the optimum approach for an individual, DISC can give you definite benefits and advantages.

Recruiting With DISC

DISC has its roots in recruitment, and it's perhaps natural that that's the area where it remains most widely used. Because of its simplicity and cost-effectiveness, DISC makes light work of the recruiting process, making it practical and affordable to implement personality profiling across the board. Features like job matching can even help to highlight those candidates who closely match the needs of a role, at least in terms of their individual personalities.

DISC can go further in this area, too. For example, best practice is to provide candidates with feedback on their performance, and a tailored DISC feedback report can do exactly that. For successful candidates, an understanding of their personal style can also help ease integration into the organisation, and with fitting their new role to their particular strengths.

Assessing and Managing

The usefulness of DISC doesn't end once a new recruit is in place. Far from it, DISC has a huge contribution to make as part of your ongoing assessment programme, as well as helping to address specific issues as they develop. Regular profiling keeps you informed about individuals' performance in their roles, giving you strategies to keep them motivated and working at their best.

When management challenges arise, DISC can play a part there, too. Having a detailed grasp of a person's aspirations and preferences gives you the tools to understand and defuse a difficult situation, and with a DISC relationship assessment can guide you towards successful conflict resolution.

Productive Working Relationships

One of the strengths of DISC is its ability to explain how two different personalities will interact together. DISC dynamics identify the positive features of any working relationship, as well as potentially problematic areas, and can even suggest approaches to help solidify a relationship.

The same principles used in DISC relationship profiling can be used to develop a communication strategy tailored to an individual personality. Understanding another person's individual style gives you a powerful ability to build a constructive relationship in any setting, from training to sales to management.

Teams and Leadership

Relationships and communication are also key ingredients of a successful team, and DISC has a part to play here, too. With tools available to interpret and report on all the personality dynamics at work within any group, team building is a simple exercise. The same approach can be used to focus on leadership within a group, not only assessing leadership qualities, but even describing the kind of leadership needed by the group as a whole.
