The University of Washington Intercollegiate Athletic Leadership Program share their experience of working with Athlete Assessments for over three years:

“We are extremely confident that using the Athlete Assessments’ Sports ManagerDISC Profiles with our master’s degree students is enhancing their experience in our intensive academic program and better preparing them for future roles as leaders in athletics.

While the Profile Assessments are a valuable tool, the service and expertise provided by Athlete Assessments makes our annual investment for each cohort of students an easy decision. They have also provided me with a strong theoretical framework, shared practical applications, and guided my ability to expand my understanding of DISC as I have engaged in the Consultant’s training.  Bo Hanson and their staff have been creative, flexible, and consistently responsive in exploring how to best integrate consultations and activities into our curriculum.”

University of Washington Use of the Sports ManagerDISC Profile within the IAL Master’s Program:

As part of their preparation for the program, each student completes the online survey and receives their personalized 40-page Sports ManagerDISC Profile Report. A 2-hour lecture is dedicated to teaching the background, theory and application of DISC, together with debriefing their Report results. Numerous times during the following sessions, the topic is referred to and some quick experiential exercises are used.

As part of their small-group projects, the groups review their Team Dynamics Report for their group to support project role allocation, how they can use their individual strengths to contribute to the group, identify any potential conflicts and how they will work best together in delivering the project outcomes. Also, the 360 Review capability is used to support the students providing feedback to their peers. Find out more about the Sports ManagerDISC Profile.
