• nearly 20% of the respondents said they utilize the DiSC assessment
• over 17% of the respondents said they utilize Social Styles

Other assessments that members have used include Birkman (Leader Development, for Teams and Career Development), EQ-I 2.0, EQ 360 Reuven Bar-On, Firo-B, Hogan, and the Keirsey Temperament Sorter.
Of its many benefits, many members have shared that using assessments increases self-awareness, understanding others, team-building and communication.
