Staffing for Success – The DISC Profile

Some of the best (and often unused) tools in hiring someone for your church staff are pre-hiring tests, and one of the tests we’ve found to be especially useful is the DISC Profile.

The DISC is a personality profile that rates potential hires (or those already on staff) in four distinct categories: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness.

A healthy staff needs a good mix of personalities for maximum effectiveness – just look at Jesus’ staff team.

By taking advantage of the DISC, you’ll gain a better understanding of how to best lead your existing staff and how a potential new hire will fit on your team.
