Self Discovery Tools

The following self-discovery tools are some of the more popular assessments being used across campus for greater understanding of self and others. Contact information for each assessment is also provided.

Manager-360 Assessment

The Manager-360 is a powerful tool with an important purpose – to harness the power of multi-faceted perspectives to identify strengths and weaknesses to improve performance. Managers have a unique and often limited perspective when it comes to their employees. The Manager-360 feedback gives managers the ability to gain insight from people who work closely with them (including their manager, peers & direct reports) about their strengths and growth areas as a manager. The Manager-360 is more of a process than simply an instrument to complete and requires a planning session (to set it up correctly) and one-on-one coaching with the manager(s) who are being evaluated once the results are in.

DISC

The DiSC assessment is a self-discovery tool to help you learn your preferred behavioral style. The DiSC assessment helps identify how people prefer to behave, act and communicate. It measures how you respond to challenges, how you get things done, how you influence others, and how you respond to rules and procedures. DiSC is made up of four basic styles (Dominance, Influence, Conscientiousness, and Steadiness) and is used by an estimated 75% of Fortune 500 companies. DiSC can help improve work productivity, teamwork and communication. It is non-judgmental and helps people discuss their behavioral differences. For more information about Disc.
