FAQ - Training

Do I need training to use Extended DISC® or FinxS?

The reports are unambiguous, direct, concise and easy to read. However, in completing the Extended DISC® Accreditation training you will learn to read the Profiles in more depth and obtain subtler yet influential information especially with regards to emotional issues that may be indicated by size and position of the Profiles. This deeper level of understanding, often allows the report reader to formulate expert open questions that lead to authentic dialogue with a respondent and ultimately, real insight into the issues indicated in the Behavioural Analysis. It also enables consultants to assist business decision-makers formulate approaches to particularly sensitive areas that are current affecting their business's performance.

What benefit is there in doing the 2-day Accreditation Training?

Extended DISC®is one of the fastest growing Human Resources Systems globally. It is simple to use and easy to understand and can be utlised to provide business solutions in a number of areas, from recruitment to employee engagement and development; from team & organisational performance enhancement to finding future leaders. It is successfully used in conflict resolution situations and by many at an individual level, both as a self-development tool and for career development.

All of the reports are simple to read, are unambiguous, direct and concise. They are based on Extended DISC®'s Model of Human Behaviour which has 4 behavioural styles at the most basic level - D (Dominance), I (Influence), S (Steadiness), C (Compliance). You don't need a degree in psychology to read and gather important information from the reports and be able to apply it successfully for your business.

However, there are many levels of information that the Profiles in the report capture. Many of them are recognised and understood on a deeper level, connecting the size, position and shape of the Profiles, with particular patterns of behaviour and importantly, the emotional response associated with these patterns. We highly recommend completing the 2-day Extended DISC Accreditation training to learn how to get the most out of your reports. This deeper level of understanding, often allows the report reader to formulate expert open questions that lead to authentic dialogue with a respondent and ultimately, real insight into the issues indicated in the Behavioural Analyses. It also enables consultants to assist business decision-makers formulate approaches to particularly sensitive areas that are current affecting their business's performance.

Who should do the Accredited Training courses?

Well we think it would be great if everyone could benefit from the insights into our own and others' behaviour. However, our most regular attendees are:

  • 'People managers' from both small and large business
  • Business owners/managers who manage their own recruitment or are involved in the day-to-day management of staff
  • HR Managers
  • Organisational Development Managers and Consultants
  • Business and Life Coaches
  • Industry Trainers
  • People interested in human behaviour

Do I need training to become a Reseller?

Training is highly recommended for all Resellers so they are able to provide the highest quality advice regarding the Extended DISC®behavioural model. HR Profiling Solutions provide online and telephone support to enable anyone to utilise our reports, but ultimately we expect resellers to be trained to at least Accreditation standard. For more information on the different levels of training available, please see visit Training from the website homepage.
