Extended DISC (ED) Reports are different to other DISC reports on the market. When you understand how the information gathered from the respondent is structured and organised by the algorithms in the ED software (the back end of the system that generates the analysis) you have a much more in-depth and comprehensive understanding of what the results represent, and how they display in the person.

Having a solid understanding of the DISC Theory of Human Behaviour is important. Once you have that understanding you can take it to a whole new level with knowledge about the ED model, which calls on other motivational and leadership theories in addition to simple DISC.

With Extended DISC you have an industrial strength tool, which can be applied with a light and breezy touch, to brush over the surface, which is great for basic communication training and consciousness raising.

DISC Accreditation Australia by Talent Tools DISC assesses individuals across four highly defined categories: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientiousness. DISC assessment is internationally recognised as a series of psychometric tests that help individuals and teams identify their behavioural styles. Once individuals and organisations are aware of their DISC profile, they are better informed about their own behaviours and how those behaviours can manifest in their interactions with others. For organisations and businesses, DISC assessments are a valuable tool that helps them in communication, team collaboration, skill building and much more. Many businesses therefore now want to integrate DISC accreditation into their employee development plans. This helps them effectively to apply the results of DISC testing in their workplaces. There are several online DISC accreditation services available. Talent Tools provides arrange of DISC Accreditation training options including Extended DISC Accreditation. eDISC and Taking Flight with DISC for individuals, businesses and organisations. Talent Tools is headed Sharon Hudson who has over 25 years of working with workplace psychometric instruments and has delivering DISC Accreditation and DISC based workshops since 2004.

Under her wing, Talent Tools has brought DISC Accreditation Melbourne to local businesses and companies, as well as in the rest of Australia, New Zealand and internationally, where they are always met with enthusiasm and satisfaction.

If you are a business or an organisation, you are probably looking at a DISC accreditation because you want solid results that truly reflect the abilities of your tested subjects. Extended DISC has far more workplace applications than simple DISC options. Not only does Extended DISC allow you to identify the DISC styles of your individuals, teams and work-pairs, but the detailed knowledge you acquire through the Extended DISC training, gives you a much, much more comprehensive understanding of the person and how they are being affected by their role and workplace environment and how to get the best from them as an individual contributor, team member and leader. Accreditation Training in Extended DISC is essential to be able to unlock what the Profiles reveal but is not written in the report, as well as to understand why and how Extended DISC reports so accurately reflect the subject's natural, unconscious behaviour. The Extended DISC insights provide you with solid foundations upon which you can implement effective decisions for adapting your organisation's behaviour to achieve maximum benefit from your employees and to place the right employees in the right roles and environment in their workplace. This kind of adaptation is central to the strength of a workplace because this adaptability is the pivot for many kinds of effective collaboration and communication. Once your have completed, your Extended DISC program, DISC Accreditation and your DISC Accreditation training allows you to customise tests and assessments according to different work positions and their requirements. It enables you to more effectively interpret the results and implement successful solutions, training programs and to assign employees to positions that benefit the employee as well as your organisation. Extended DISC Accreditation is highly relevant for coaches, HR professionals, Trainers, Recruiters and Facilitators. Your Extended DISC Accreditation allows you to read, successfully comprehend and accurately analyse the individual at hand. It further allows you to interpret your work-pairs and to correctly read and analyse your team analysis reports. Talent Tools provides DISC Accreditation training online, as one-on-one training with the Master Trainer, or online as scheduled DISC Accreditation webinars. Talent Tools will soon release their new self-paced online DISC Accreditation training. Both eDISC and Extended DISC Accreditation are available online at Talent Tools. What are the benefits of being DISC accredited and able to read and analyse the reports in this way? The benefits are multi-faceted and varied. With this eDISC accreditation provided by Talent Tools, you are in a better position more successfully to recruit employees, develop training programs and effectively design coaching methods and programs. All of this, in turn, feeds into the success at your workplace, which obviously translates into better results for your clients or customers and your company. Extended DISC Accreditation and Extended DISC assessments will give your organisation significant benefits over other DISC programs and accreditations. One of the things that is specific and unique about Extended DISC training is the "back-end", behind-the-scenes training that you receive. Understanding fully how the respondent's information is arranged and structured by the Extended DISC algorithms, will give you a finely detailed understanding of the results, which can also be fine-tuned to your organisation's specific requirements. The Extended DISC algorithms are responsible for generating the Extended DISC analysis reports. Once you understand the specific relevancies of the algorithms, you are better equipped to understand the results. This means you have a more in-depth understanding of what the results display and how they manifest in a certain person or team. The Extended DISC model also draws upon proven leadership theories and theories of motivation to help people modify their behaviours in the workplace. This means the Extended DISC model takes the traditional DISC results a step further by compounding them with the best practices of leadership and motivation. The Extended DISC questionnaire has been carefully constructed to be low in face validity, which results in high report validity and reliability resulting in far more accurate and relevant person information.. If you are a business who wants to, for example, solve employee issues or other areas of weakness at the workplace, you need a laser sharp focus on the identification and, more importantly, the interpretation of behavioural styles. Extended DISC allows you to see how complex behaviour dynamics manifest in your workplace environment and provides direction in successfully addressing these issues. You are encouraged to access the support and help you will receive from Talent Tools you will be able to accurately and precisely identify the problems at your workplace and develop strategies to overcome these areas of weakness and correct them.
