We're sure most of you are familiar with the Myers Briggs assessment many companies give their potential employees. There's also the Enneagram assessment and the Holland Code. We don't use personality assessments at Bridgeview. Instead, we focus on making sure our different personalities can communicate, which is why everyone who works for Bridgeview takes the DISC assessment.
There are four categories of communication according to DISC: Decisive, Interactive, Stabilizing, and Cautious. Depending on how a person answers the DISC questionnaire, they will be strong in one or more category. Knowing how a person communicates makes for an environment where we can be ourselves and still respect the communication style of others.
Which assessment do you use at your company?
