A genuine interpretation of DISC : DISC Governance [fev 2021]

The pattern "Dominance, Inducement, Submission, Compliance", which forms the acronym DISC and where the terms are respectively associated to the colors blue, red, yellow and green, originated in William Moulton Marston's book Emotions of Normal People (1928) [1a][1b].

Since then, the pattern has been interpretated into tools that help trainers and coaches to steward their professional clients ; such tools can help to identify the client's personality or assess his skills set.

To deliver governance services to enterprises, we have designed a new interpretation of DISC : Delegate, Influence, Support, Command.
