Appling DiSC Outside of Business – Personality Tests for Coaches and Athletes


What makes a team successful?  Is it the one superstar who carries the team?  Or is it a synergistic team working together towards a common goal?  Our belief is that it is the latter.

Understanding your team’s strengths and challenges as well as understanding the personalities behind the athletes allows teams to flourish.  We’re not suggesting that you are required to have a team comprised of D-i-S-C personalities (although that would be helpful!).  What we are suggesting is that if you understand what personalities exist on your team, you can hone in on those strengths and be cautious of the areas that are missing on the team.

Four times Olympic Champion, Bo Hanson, believes in the DiSC system to aid coaches and athletes; he believes that you can gain a better understanding of your team and modify your coaching techniques to suit their styles.

Understand yourself, and those that surround you better.  DiSC profiles will help you and your team:

  • Better understand your own priorities and tendencies
  • Recognize and respect the behavioral traits in others
  • Adapt your style for improved communication with others
  • Understand each other’s priorities and increase “wins”
  • Improve your leadership capabilities
  • Lead your team better by understanding the intricacies among Vision, Alignment, and Execution
