DISC personality assessment

DISC maps preferred behavior and communication in various environments. Contributing to an (improved) understanding of what motivates you and others and why you and others make specific decisions. DISC improves open communication, personal effectiveness and strengthens relationships.

We have been qualified to use DISC as an instrument in our search for our client’s ideal personal assistant (and your ideal role!).
