2. On a powerpoint or whiteboard, draw a dot on the disc where you think you fit and discuss with the team why you feel that this best represents your style.
3. Encourage feedback as to whether the team agree or disagree, you may find that there will be lots of nuanced positioning of your dot within a quadrant or sector – don’t get too hung up on the accuracy of the positioning as this will be completed by a formal DiSC profile, just use the positioning as a source of friendly debate and discussion.
4. Ask the team members to use either the Team Map handout to draw a dot where they think they would feature in the circle themselves and why. If you have a disc on a whiteboard, ask each member to make their dot. Don’t get involved in a detailed debate here, as some people could get very defensive about their positioning, and it can be very subjective. Some people in a team will love this activity (and they may place their dot around the ‘I’ style area of the disc), some may be more reserved and reluctant (they may place their dot around the ‘C’ style area of the disc). Respect their positioning and allow a limited amount of feedback. Keep the mood light and positive.
