With the release of Everything DiSC Workplace® and the Everything DiSC Comparison Report®, there are more reasons than ever for people to compare the two best-known assessments for training. People who know MBTI and DiSC® agree that they both are valuable learning tools. But to select the best tool for the job, you need a clear understanding of the organization’s goals.
People Prefer DiSC® When:
- Their goal is to get people to work more effectively together.
