The AthleteDISC Profile
For elite athletes, it is a constant pursuit of improvements. The best coaches use everything at their disposal to help their athletes make the big or sometimes very subtle changes to achieve their best.
You may have had the experience of a coach trying to explain a technical change to an athlete about what they are currently doing and what would make a technical difference to their performance. The coach may have tried numerous times and ways to talk through what they are asking of the athlete. And then they use video to record the athlete doing the technique and show them directly with the benefit of seeing the video. The athlete sees what is needed and bam, the break-through. They make the change and get the improvement.
This is exactly the same as using the AthleteDISC Profile to help an athlete understand what they are currently doing. It is a window into their behavior, what they do. It provides the clarity for the athlete to understand themselves, and it is the most efficient way for a coach to know with confidence how to coach and communicate with them. In elite sport, like any environment, your behavior creates your results. To improve results, we must know the behaviors that serve us and those that don’t. In a nutshell, this is what the use of the AthleteDISC Profile does.
What is the AthleteDISC Profile?
As the name reflects, the AthleteDISC Profile is exclusively developed for athletes. It is used around the world by top athletes from professional sports teams, Olympic teams and state, national and college teams. It reveals significant insights into your preferred styles of behaving, strategies to capitalize on your personal strengths and recommendations to address development opportunities. It is all about helping you take your sporting performance to the next level.
The AthleteDISC Profile is valuable on its own, but it is so much more than the initial Report that is received. It also has additional capabilities including the option of observer feedback, career management, being part of the team dynamic reporting and the new recruiting compatibility.
The AthleteDISC Profile begins with completing a 12-minute online survey and results in a personalized and detailed AthleteDISC Profile Report (with summaries for easy use). As you will see in the sample provided below, the Report details the athletes’ personal behavioral style, strengths, motivators, limiting behaviors, communication preferences and the environment they perform best in.
Why use the AthleteDISC Profile?
The AthleteDISC Profile has enormous value on its own to support the athlete in developing improved results and as a personal development tool. When used as part of a team, it is the foundation to build team chemistry, reduce conflict and develop the communication needed for ultimate teamwork.
