It is over 11 years since Athlete Assessments released the first DISC Profile assessments specifically customized to sport to give Coaches, athletes and sports professionals the tools they need to improve performance. Over the years, we’ve continued to upgrade and make improvements in our services and over the 2018 new year, we made a small but important update. You may have seen media coverage and/or been engaged in discussions on gender identity and it is important that our DISC Profiles line up with the way people identify themselves. At Athlete Assessments these matters are of the utmost importance to us. The simplest way that we can make sure we get it right every time is to remove any reference to gender in both the survey and the subsequent reports.

Athlete Assessments’ DISC Profiles cement the foundations of peak performance in elite sport.

They allow Coaches, athletes and administrators to understand themselves and everyone around them. This understanding generates a framework for communication and teamwork.

The gender references in the  were only ever grammatical and did not influence the content of the report. The changes we have made are purely related to grammar.

Previously, when a Coach, athlete or administrator commenced our DISC Profile assessment survey, they’d be asked if they were male or female and our reports would use the appropriate pronouns (he/she, him/her). Now, we’ve re-written our survey and reports to remove the gender reference.

Any questions and issues can be discussed with the utmost confidentiality by contacting Athlete Assessments and asking for Client Director, Liz Masen.

DISC Profiles

Get the ‘People Side’ Right in Sport

The primary purpose of DISC profiling is to develop self-awareness and provide a framework for understanding others so you can build effective relationships. Athlete Assessments provides three different types of DISC Profiles, one specifically for coaches, one for athletes, and one for sports administrators and other professionals.

Each assessment provides a personalized DISC Profile Report based on the results of a 12-minute online survey. The individual report details personal styles, strengths, limiting behaviors, communication preferences, and the ideal environment to enhance performance.
