DISC for Couples

Over the years many personality and communication assessments have been used in couples coaching and marital therapy to help couples understand each other better. One of the most popular is the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator developed by Isabel Briggs Myers, and her mother, Katharine Briggs. 


Today, we have an alternative  personality and communication assessment that many coaches prefer, a DISC profile.  At Coaching for Physicians we recommend the DiSC Workplace Profile®. DiSC is personality assessment that helps you build more effective relationships based on an understanding of different behavioral styles. It provides a wealth of information and a comprehensive report along with a comparison report for both partners.  This can allow them to modify or tailor their communication to avoid misunderstandings.  


Marital difficulties often increase career dissatisfaction and burnout which in turn can lead to depression, anxiety and excessive use of alcohol or other drugs. So any tool that may help couples improve communication and increase self-awareness is worth using. The DiSC style assessment is quick to administer and scientifically proven.


At Coaching for Physicians and DISC4Healthcare, we encourage coaches and therapists to use the EverythingDiSC® Workplace Profile with Comparison Reports.
