As a career coach, your ultimate goal is to help your coachee achieve their professional goals and develop their skills in a way that aligns with their values and interests. One tool that can be particularly useful for achieving this is the DISC assessment and model.
The DISC-based tool - MapsTell is a behavioural assessment tool that categorizes individuals into one of four behavioural styles: Decisive, Influential, Stable, and Conscientious. By understanding their own behavioural style, coachees can gain valuable insights into their strengths, weaknesses, and how they interact with others in the workplace.
Here are some ways in which career coaches can use the DISC assessment and model to help their coachees:
Understanding the coachee's behavioural style: The DISC assessment can provide valuable insights into the coachee's behavioural style, allowing them to understand better themselves and how to interact with others more effectively in their professional life.
Identifying potential career paths: Different behavioural styles are well-suited to different types of careers. By understanding the coachee's behavioural style, a career coach can help them identify career paths that are likely to be a good fit and provide them with a sense of fulfilment and satisfaction.
Developing leadership skills: The DISC model can be used to help the coachee develop their leadership skills by understanding how to effectively communicate and collaborate with others who have different behavioural styles. This can be particularly useful for coachees looking to move into leadership positions or who want to improve their leadership skills in their current roles.
Improving communication skills: By understanding the coachee's behavioural style and how it may differ from others, a career coach can help them develop communication skills that are effective for interacting with individuals with different styles. This can be particularly helpful in situations such as team meetings, presentations, or negotiations.
In summary, the DISC assessment and model can be a valuable tool for career coaches to help their coachees better understand themselves, develop their professional skills, and achieve their career goals.
